加州议会拉丁裔和非裔立法党团就SCA5发表联合声明。这个联合声明实际上是把前一段时间所有反对SCA5亚裔民众放到了对立面,而且宣告了一场真正意义的大规模辩论和立法攻防战的开始。亚裔民众准备好了吗?

声明要点翻成中文如下:

1、即使现在法案被退回参议院,拉丁裔和非裔立法党团强力支持SCA5并坚定不移地努力使其通过。

2、这个法案被延误的主要原因是:不诚实的、极端保守的党派利益者鼓动的恶毒的、散布虚假信息的一场运动造成的,目的是为了拒绝给所有加州人平等的机会。

3、毫无疑问209法案造成了非裔、拉丁裔和其他未被充分代表的族裔在高等教育里巨大和急剧的下降。

原文如下:

Latino Legislative Caucus and Legislative Black Caucus Joint Statement on SCA 5

March 25, 2014
Today, the California Latino Legislative Caucus and California Legislative Black Caucus issued the following joint statement regarding the disinformation campaign surrounding SCA 5:

“The California Latino Legislative Caucus and California Legislative Black Caucus jointly express our strong support of SCA 5 (Hernandez) despite its return to the house of origin for further consideration. We share a strong commitment to its passage and all measures that ensure equal opportunity for all Californians.

SCA 5 would enact seriously needed reforms that would roll back the ban on race as a consideration in weighing college admissions. This will bring fairness and balance to our educational system.

We understand the desire of leadership to have further discussions about this important issue and are committed to ensuring the success of the bicameral commission on issues surrounding recruitment, admissions, and retention. However, we must not ignore the fact that the major reason this measure has been delayed is due to a malicious disinformation campaign being waged by disingenuous ultra-conservative partisans intent on denying equal opportunity for all Californians.

We will not allow bad information to undermine good public policy. There is no question Proposition 209 has led to a tremendous and precipitous decline in the number of African-Americans, Latinos and other underrepresented communities in higher education. Our Caucuses are committed to putting this issue before the voters of California. We will continue to work through the process, but rest assured, we will not stop working until all Californians have equal access to higher education and a brighter future.”
