Councilwoman Christiana Rigby posted the following statement on Facebook:

On Thursday evening, the Howard County Council’s Racial Equity Task Force held a Public Hearing. During that hearing, a member of the public made disparaging and racist comments targeting Chinese, Korean, Asian, and Latino communities in Howard County. These comments were deeply painful for many members of our community.

I wholeheartedly condemn and disavow the bigoted and anti-immigrant testimony made during the Public Hearing, and I’d like to express my support for all immigrant community members. Hatred should have no home in Howard County.
