America. It is NOT just about then. It is also about NOW!
       A modern version of Chinese Exclusion Act is stewing.   Just recall the conversation between Senator Rubio of FL and FBI director Wray on the Senate floor on Feb 13.   Click one "Stand together or Hang separately" for a quick review.  80-20 also donated $500 to
this project.

      FOWARD to as many of our compatriots as your email list will allow.  That way, our
nation may review the past in order to prevent the recurrence of an earlier mistake.
