Asian Senators vote in favor of University discrimination against… Asians

Democrat Asian U.S. Senators, Tammy Duckworth and Mazie Hirono, voted in favor of University discrimination against Asians. Buried by the media, except for this editorial in the Wall Street Journal, was an amendment added to the legislation that would stop universities from discrimination against Asians in their admissions practices. All Democrats voted it down.

The GOP amendment was a single sentence. It said no college “may receive any Federal funding if the institution has a policy in place or engages in a practice that discriminates against Asian Americans in recruitment, applicant review, or admissions.”

All Republicans voted for the amendment, which was sponsored by Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas. Democrats voted it down, 49-48.

This gives Harvard the green light to continue to make it more difficult for Asians to get accepted.

Nothing like Asians hurting Asians for political expediency.
