Ten members of the President's Advisory Commission on Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders (AAPIs) submitted their resignation to President Donald Trump, NBC News has learned.

In the letter addressed to Trump and obtained by NBC News on Wednesday, the 10 members — approximately two-thirds of the commission — stated their objection to the president's "portrayal of immigrants, refugees, people of color and people of various faiths as untrustworthy, threatening, and a drain on our nation."

Among the members who resigned are its chair and vice chair — Tung Thanh Nguyen, professor of medicine at the University of California, San Francisco; and Mary Okada, president and CEO of Guam Community College — and actor Maulik Pancholy, who told NBC News that the decision to leave was "an emotional and difficult" one.

Citing the administration's "rhetoric of hate," Pancholy, who has been active with anti-bullying initiatives as a member of the commission, said he felt his ability to do his job had been taken away.

Let me ask you the following:

Not that you run, or own a business, but if you did, and suddenly a sizeable % of your managers decided to resign, how would you take that?

Most owners, or senior level managers would take that as a sign that something seriously is wrong at the top. A vote of no confidence says a lot...even if you try to label it as "drama", it's much more than that.

In a separate letter sent to the president on Jan. 13, the commissioners requested a meeting to review the commission's goals and to discuss issues affecting Asian American and Pacific Islander communities, but said they received no response.


Hi, @realDonaldTrump. We’re the CBC. We sent you a letter on January 19, but you never wrote us back. Sad! Letter: http://bit.ly/2kD6FhQ

Great question!
I'll stay tuned for the answer.
