Filipino abogado speaks out on US racial issue against Asian Americans

Roxas said that it took the police department 7 months to act on the case of Kayceelyn Salminao’s case. The abogado said that if it weren’t for the viral videos, the case would have not been investigated.
The abogado shared that the videos and statements were not seen as sufficient evidence to proceed with the charges. She decided to just urge city officials to stop xenophobia and racism through education because though it wasn’t recognized as a crime, it should not be tolerated in any state or country.
So much injustice and hate!
