伊利诺伊共和党总部对美联航粗暴对待乘客的声明

Joint Statement from the Illinois Republican Party, Asian American GOP Coalition & Illinois Korean American Republican Organization

The Illinois Republican Party, Asian American GOP Coalition, and Illinois Korean American Republican Organization released the following statement in response to the removal of a passenger from an overbooked United Airlines’ flight:

“Illinois Republicans are disturbed by the video of airline personnel violently
removing a passenger from an overbooked flight. Regardless of the
circumstances or the person’s race, creed, or religion, no one should encounter
violence in the face of a disagreement. We hope that both United Airlines and
the City of Chicago investigate the situation and ensure that appropriate
procedures are in place to prevent similar incidents in the future. The conduct in
this case is simply unacceptable.”

The statement is attributable to Tim Schneider, Chairman of the Illinois Republican Party, Yan (Grace) Cui, Chairman of the Asian American GOP Coalition, and Dr. Byoung Suh, Chairman of the Illinois Korean American Republican Organization.
