Summary: ” “Thirty-five years later, ‘Make America Great Again’ is the battle cry of those who fear American jobs have been sent overseas to China, and other nations.”  Aarti Kohli, executive director of AAJ’s Asian Law Caucus, echoed Wang’s thoughts and told HuffPost that the economic rise up of India and China has already had an impact on the South Asian and Chinese communities in the U.S. What’s more, members of the South Asian-American community have gone through an “unprecedented” resurgence of hate violence. “In the seven months since the election, there have been hundreds if that is not the case thousands of reports of hate-related attacks, linked to anti-immigrant, anti-China and anti-Muslim sentiments,” Wang, whose organization has its own website that tracks anti-Asian hate crimes, told HuffPost. Modern-Day Hate Violence Against Asian-Americans Tied To Anti-Immigrant Sentiment  Since Chin’s death, there’s been no shortage of hate targeting the Asian-American community ― particularly in recent years during which there’s been a resurgence of violence. The violence was “electrified” by the election cycle, and comparable to levels seen the September 11 attacks, nonprofit South Asian Americans Leading Together, said of a study from the group. The executive director of the Committee of 100, Frank Wu, earlier told HuffPost that the unfair treatment of Asian-Americans in those cases underscores the fact the group still has, yet to be seen as American ― even if their families have been in the states, for many generations. Wang earlier identified to HuffPost many instances in which Trump made the nation out to be a threat including a 2015 announcement just where he said that “ISIS, China, Mexico are all beating us.” To numerous experts, Trump’s rhetoric hearkens back to the motivations in back of Chin’s murder. “Vincent Chin died during a time of escalated anti-Japanese sentiment, rooted primarily in the fear of Japan as an economic threat to American manufacturing,” Wang told HuffPost. Today, this manifests itself in hate crimes against Asian-Americans, and the targeting of the minority group in FBI espionage cases. “It often feels care for we haven’t learned from our past mistakes as a nation,” Karin Wang, vice president of Programs, and Communications, for nonprofit Asian Americans Advancing Justice – Los Angeles (AAJ-LA), told HuffPost. A new report released by the Committee of 100, a Chinese-American nonprofit, showed that those of Asian descent might’ve been unfairly treated in economic espionage cases.”
