CT Dems’ statement on Trump’s defense of white supremacists

Justice, diversity and inclusion are central to the state of Connecticut, and Democrats will fight every day to preserve and protect those values. Yet, on issue after issue, Connecticut Republicans have fallen in line with Trump. Now more than ever we need our GOP colleagues to speak out not only in support of equality, but to hold the president to account for his words and actions.

Rep. Tong, Chairman Balletto Statements On GOP Fundraiser Featuring Michelle Malkin

"As Connecticut’s first Asian American legislator, I am particularly offended that the Connecticut GOP has invited Ms. Malkin to speak because of her hateful views in defense of Japanese internment, as set forth in her book 'In Defense of Internment.'  I do not understand how the Connecticut Republican Party embraces and defends the imprisonment of American citizens in concentration camps on American soil, which, I will readily acknowledge, was perpetrated by Democrats in that age.  But at least most of us have the good sense and judgment to be ashamed of it. This is an obvious offense, not just to Asian Pacific Americans across our state, Republican or Democrat, but to all people."
