Oklahoma Republican Half-Apologizes for Racist Law Designating Only Hispanic Gang Members as Terrorists

Oklahoma State Representative Justin Humphrey regrets that he proposed a bill that would have designated Hispanic gang members — and no other racial or ethnic group — as terrorists. But he also has no regrets and wants people to know that he «wasn’t wrong.»

In response to the outcry over the text of his legislation, HB 3133– which proposes that gang members «of historical origin residing in the state of Oklahoma» who have been convicted of «gang-related crimes» be considered terrorists – Humphrey he said KFOR: “I’m sorry I just used the word Hispanic, but I wasn’t wrong. Again, it’s the Hispanics. The reality is that they are Hispanic. There’s nothing to be ashamed of.» He said he plans to change the term «Hispanic» to «illegal illegal» in the bill. He also said that in addition to Mexican cartels, Chinese citizens are to blame for Oklahoma’s fentanyl problem, which he is trying to address. only people of Hispanic origin were specified in the bill.

Mark Woodward, a public information officer for the Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics told the paper, “All of the illegal fentanyl that is absolutely responsible for this epidemic in the United States comes across the borders of the cartels and moves through their pipelines across the US. However, China is the world’s largest exporter of fentanyl and fentanyl precursors. The Chinese mass-produce precursors and send them either directly to the US, where the cartels buy them.

Oklahoma State Senator Michael Brooks, who founded the Oklahoma Latino Legislative Caucus, he said and guardian, “If the law treats people differently based on their race or ethnicity, it only creates more differences. The bill is fatally flawed and I don’t know if there is any way to change it.’
