DEAR SEN. RICARDO LARA, BILL MONNING, and KEVIN De LÉON:
The Senate Democrats had shaken the Senate floor on Thursday morning, February 23, 2017. You did that because California Republican Senator Janet Nguyen, a refugee from Vietnam, had her speech cut off and was forcibly removed from the State Senate floor as she spoke out in memory of fallen Vietnamese refugees who fled persecution and oppression by Viet Cong. Did you really have the right to silence and humiliate your colleague in such a disreputable and despicable way? My American friends and media did not agree with your actions. Here are some of their suggestions and views.
