"I am from [City, State], and I urge the Member to CONTACT Inspector General Michael E. Horowitz. We are seeing a pattern of racial profiling in espionage cases being brought against Asian American scientists, only for those charges to be abruptly dropped. We urge the Member to send the Inspector General a letter asking him to conduct an independent investigation on the possible use of racial profiling in the cases of Sherry Chen, Dr. Xiaoxing Xi, and other Asian Americans who have been accused of espionage but had those charges dropped.”
