    NEW DELHI: A delegation from the Asian American and Pacific Community (AAPI) met with US President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris on Thursday to discuss a range of issues, including hate crimes and immigration.
    The meeting took place at the White House in Washington and also covered the issue of voting rights.
    The executive director of the Indian American Impact, Neil Makhija, said he “raised the issue of immigration, voting rights and, in particular, late green cards in explaining how state ceilings are remnants of foreclosure laws, particularly in the decade of 20 “.
    He also told ANI that Biden was “acutely aware of the injustice done to the system.”

    During the meeting, Biden added that the community is also critical to keeping the US economy strong. But he further acknowledged that “there is work to be done on immigration, there is work to be done on voting rights and much more.”
    “On my first day in power, I signed an executive order to promote racial equality and a government-wide approach to tackling inequality and injustice in America by every organization,” he said. “And the contribution of this team has been and continues to be crucial to this approach.”
