In honor of Asian-American and Pacific Islander heritage month, host Carol Castiel sits down (via Microsoft Teams) with California Democratic Congressman, Ted Lieu, an immigrant from Taiwan who sits on the House of Representatives’ Foreign Affairs and Judiciary Committees.

One of the nine House managers during former President Donald Trump’s second impeachment trial for inciting the January 6, 2021 Capitol insurrection, Congressman Lieu discusses the significance of a bipartisan commission, immigration reform and infrastructure legislation, the COVID-19 Hate Crimes Act, cybersecurity, Afghanistan, and US-China relations.
