Statement on the rise of Anti-Asian violence by the Lieutenant Governor of New York, Kathy Hochul

"The violent acts that have been committed against the Asian American community are horrific. My heart goes out to the victims and their loved ones. This isn't new, but we are seeing a spike in these attacks in New York and throughout the country. We will not tolerate hate or violence against Asian Americans in New York. Full stop. We stand in solidarity with the Japanese community, and the entire Asian community."
