WASHINGTON, D.C. — The family of a Tulsa man killed by a neighbor attended an event in the White House on Thursday as President Biden signed the Asian American Hate Crimes bill.

Khalid Jabara died in August 2016 when Stanley Majors shot and killed him on Jabara's front porch. Majors was convicted of first degree murder and misdemeanor counts including hate crimes. He died in prison in 2018.
