On March 10, 2004 Sada-e-Pakistan NY reported, "On Feb. 27, speaking before a crowd of more than 400 Pakistani community members, three prominent U.S. Senators said that the only way to counter the Bush Administration’s policies of ethnic and racial profiling was to send President Bush back home to Texas. It was the first time in the history of Pakistani community in New York City that three senators had visited together. Well-known Pakistani community leaders and activists, along with Pakistanis from all walks of life attended the meeting. Senators Jon Corzine, Charles Schumer and Tom Harkin emphasized that the Democratic presidential candidate, John Kerry, needs to win the election and the Democratic Party needs to become the majority party in the U.S. Senate. In order to do so, the Democratic Party asked for the full support of the Pakistani-American community."
