Loren Legarda said heads should roll as racism in America now targets Asians in the United States.

The ex-senator now Antique congresswoman said the crimes should stop.

“There should be no place for hate for or discrimination against any race in our world today. Instead, there should only be respect for human rights, dignity and equality among us,” the politiko said.

“We thank the Biden administration for its swift action to prevent further attacks, as this means a lot to all Filipinos who have relatives who are working or residing in the United States.”

It should not stop there.

“We further appeal, however, for the immediate prosecution of the perpetrators as the rule of law is the ultimate way to deter the commission of similar attacks in the future,” she added.
