Press Release

Washington, DC — Today, Rep. Judy Chu (CA-27) issued the following statement to recognize Korean American Day, which commemorates the arrival of the first Korean immigrants to the US on January 13, 1903 and the contributions of Korean Americans in all aspects of society:  

“Today, I join my fellow Members of Congress to celebrate Korean Americans across the United States and their contributions to this country in all aspects of American life. Korean Americans have been a vital part of this nation since they first arrived in the U.S. on January 13, 1903 and have made immeasurable contributions as small business owners, military service members, faith leaders, doctors, artists, and elected officials. As Chair of the Congressional Asian Pacific American Caucus (CAPAC), I have been proud to work with the Korean American community on so many critical issues, from fighting for the reunion of divided families to protecting Dreamers and securing citizenship for Korean adoptees. I wish the Korean American community in California and all across the nation a very happy Korean American Day!”
