Representatives Young Kim and Jimmy Gomez introduce resolution to recognize Korean American Day as January 13 2023

Rep. Young Kim Leads Bipartisan Resolution to Honor Korean American Day
Washington, DC – Today, U.S. Representative Young Kim (CA-40), one of the first Korean American women to serve in Congress, introduced a bipartisan resolution with fellow California Rep. Jimmy Gomez (CA-34) to designate January 13, 2023 as Korean American Day.

Rep. Kim led a similar resolution in the 117th Congress and each year during her time in the California State Assembly to honor her heritage and the more than 1.8 million Korean Americans who call the United States home.

“Since the first Korean immigrants arrived on January 13, 1903, Korean Americans have made their mark from sea to shining sea and have found success in the classroom, the workplace, and even right here in Congress, to make our nation a better place,” said Rep. Kim. “As one of the first Korean American women to serve in Congress and an immigrant from South Korea, I am grateful for the sacrifices my family made to have the chance at a better life and proud to recognize the 1.8 million Korean Americans in the U.S. today who share my story. I will always fight for freedom and opportunity for all Americans.”

88 colleagues including fellow Korean American Reps. Michelle Steel (CA-45), Marilyn Strickland (WA-10) and Andy Kim (NJ-03) joined Kim and Gomez in introducing this resolution.

  1. Another news release from Young Kim! What about a news release in your voting for RINO Kevin McCarthy?

    1. Sam,

      Thank you for reading Orange County Breeze, and for taking the time to comment on this article.

      We publish news releases from Young Kim because she represents a local Congressional District. House Speaker Kevin McCarthy represents California’s 20th Congressional District:

      Nearly 800,000 people reside in California’s 20th Congressional District, which encompasses portions of the counties of Kern, Fresno, Tulare, and Kings. The district includes all or parts of Bakersfield, Clovis, Frazier Park, Hanford, Kernville, Lake Isabella, Lemoore, Mojave, Ridgecrest, Taft, Tehachapi, and Visalia. The Los Padres National Forests, Sequoia National Park, and Sequoia National Forest, including the Giant Sequoia National Monument, are also partially included in the 20th Congressional District.

      I would be interested in hearing why you label Kevin McCArthy a RINO (Republican in Name Only).

      Again, thank you for reading Orange County Breeze
