19, 2021 House Speaker Nancy Pelosi joined lawmakers from a congressional group called the Tri-Caucus in denouncing the recent spike in anti-Asian hate crimes and violence. (Feb. 19) AP Domestic WASHINGTON – Lawmakers representing groups of minority members of Congress and top House Democratic leaders Friday denounced a "crisis point" of attacks against Asian Americans and called for action to prevent future attacks. Speaking at a virtual press conference, Congressional Asian Pacific American Caucus Chairperson Rep. Judy Chu, D-Calif., said the Asian American community had "reached a crisis point that cannot be ignored" amid reports of a rise in violence and hate incidents against Asian Americans in the last several weeks. Chu and other lawmakers said the attacks are part of a rise in anti-Asian American bias and xenophobia amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Stop AAPI Hate, a group tracking anti-Asian discrimination, said it had received more than 2,808 firsthand accounts of anti-Asian hate from mid-March 2020 through the end of 2020. Many of the lawmakers speaking Friday laid the blame at the feet of leaders like former President Donald Trump, who has blamed China for the pandemic and used derisive terms for the coronavirus. Advocates and Asian American lawmakers warned the language would inflame anti-Asian American sentiment. "What started as dirty looks and verbal assaults" at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic had "escalated to physical attacks and violence against innocent Asian Americans," Chu said. "Just as many Asian Americans were preparing for the Lunar New Year over the past few weeks, we saw a surge in anti-Asian violence." Chu cited several attacks against Asian Americans, including the killing of 84-year-old Thai American Vicha Ratanapakdee, and a recent increase in violence against senior citizens in Oakland, Calif.'s, Chinatown. Vicha Ratanapakdee was died in San Francisco after an attack his family said was racially motivated. In response, Chu and the lawmakers called for Congress to take action to pass the "No Hate Act," which would provide grants to states to improve hate crime reporting. Chu said they would also be requesting a meeting with the Department of Justice to follow up on the implementation of President Joe Biden's executive order addressing xenophobia and violence against Asian Americans. Chu hoped it would be a bipartisan request to the Department as they sought more details on enforcement actions and "proactive actions" to reach out to Asian American communities. Rep. Andy Kim, D-N.J., said Trump's rhetoric was not the only factor in the increase in violence. "There's a deeper level of bias and discrimination that is harbored within our country," he said. Kim said images like that of a 91-year-old shoved to the ground in Oakland Chinatown had been "seared" into his memory. "That could have been my father or grandfather," he said. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., gave brief remarks calling for the need to improve hate crime reporting, citing a recent incident in New York where a 52-year-old woman waiting in line at a bakery had been shoved into a metal newspaper box by a man, but it could not be determined whether the incident was a hate crime. Asian American lawmakers noted the language barrier among immigrants could make it difficult for crimes to be reported. Rep. Grace Meng, D-N.Y., noted she had talked to people about incidents that could be classified as hate incidents, but the victims had limited English capabilities and "they don't necessarily know what som has been saying." Other lawmakers from what is known as the "Tri-Caucus," or the group of three caucuses in Congress representing lawmakers of Asian, Black, and Hispanic descent or those with shared interests, stressed the need for solidarity. Rep. Jimmy Gomez, D-Calif., who represents part of Los Angeles including its Chinatown, read aloud an email from an Asian American constituent who had recently been robbed during the Lunar New Year, and said "what happens to anybody in our community happens to the rest of us." And Rep. Barbara Lee, D-Calif., a former chairwoman of the Black Caucus, called for concrete actions, telling reporters, "as an African American woman, this is an issue that we know so well in the Black community. It's an issue we cannot just turn our back to and just say ...https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/2021/02/19/lawmakers-denounce-crisis-point-anti-asian-american-violence/6791224002/

Metro Detroit weather: Still some light snow yet to go Tags: Detroit Weather , Michigan Weather , Snow , Weather Forecast , Weather Center , Weather , Cold , Snowing DETROIT – The latest major winter storm just grazed us Thursday, as expected, leaving a fluffy inch or two across the area. Light snow and snow showers are gradually winding down, and mostly cloudy skies (meaning some of us may get occasional peeks of sun) will prevail during the daylight hours until scattered snow showers develop late afternoon into the evening. Highs will reach the mid 20s (-3 degrees Celsius), with light northwest wind at 5 to 10 mph becoming a west wind during the afternoon -- it’s this shift to the west that will help energize the Lake Michigan lake effect snow machine and bring some snow showers across the state later on. Snow showers diminish Friday night, with mostly cloudy skies hanging on. Lows in the low teens (-11 degrees Celsius). Skies should become partly cloudy on Saturday, with highs in the mid 20s (-3 degrees Celsius)…a great day to get out and play in the snow! Partly cloudy Saturday night, with lows in the single digits (-15 to -13 degrees Celsius). We’ll hopefully start our Sunday with some sunshine, but skies become cloudy as the morning progresses. Highs, however, should reach the low 30s (0 degrees Celsius) -- another great day to play in the snow! The next storm is still on track to reach us Sunday night. However, the upper level disturbance that will generate this surface system won’t cross the west coast until Saturday morning, so it won’t be until then that our computer models benefit from the direct observations of our land-based weather balloon network (called radiosondes). Until then, I can’t get real confident about a few specifics. Snow will develop -- that’s a certainty -- but the big question is the thermal profile of the lower atmosphere. It still appears that some of us will see a transition from snow to freezing rain and rain, but who gets that changeover is still up in the air (no pun intended -- really -- those words just came out -- you truly don’t want to know what goes on inside my head). But I’m seeing enough suggestions from the models to think that a changeover will occur for at least the southern two-thirds of our area, so snow amounts look less impressive now -- perhaps an inch or so total Sunday night into Monday morning. Of course, if something changes radically and we stay all snow, then the snow amounts will go up. And for those of you worried about another return to the deep freeze, stop worrying. I do not see anything resembling the temperature regime we just came out of for the next two weeks, which then puts us in March, where those Arctic blasts become even less likely.
