Rep. Judy Chu, who serves on the House Committee on Ways and Means, joins NBC4's Conan Nolan as she discusses the Department of the Interior's considering reducing the size of some national monuments, including the San Gabriel Mountains National Monument. Chu addresses what she sees as the problem with reducing a national monument that took decades to be approved.
And so I am echoing the call of the Community Collaborative who invited President Trump and Secretary Zinke to visit the monument to better understand how community groups are working together to best protect our federal lands. This week, I led a letter signed by other officials representing National Monuments urging the president to do just that.
Chu said Trump’s efforts to “demonize” Muslims threaten to inspire hate and violece against them.
“I felt it was very important to bring people together to express our solidarity with one another as a community and to express our desire to be the America that we know, the America where we support one another, an America where we uphold the freedom of religion,” Chu said.
“I wanted to make sure people understood the wonderful tradition of heads covered, shoes off and sharing a meal,” California Democratic Rep. Judy Chu said on why she co-founded the American Sikh Congressional Caucus in 2013.
"It is very important that California apply for this historic grant from the U.S. Department of Education, given the large and diverse Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) population in our state," Rep. Judy Chu, chair of CAPAC, told NBC News.

Judy Chu’s meeting at All Saints Episcopal Church on Wednesday evening to hear from people affected by gun violence, including Josh Stepakoff, who survived the 1999 shooting at the Los Angeles Jewish Community Center, and his mother, Lauren Leib.

Judy Chu (D-CA), chairwoman of the Congressional Asian Pacific American Caucus, said in a statement.
Some AAPI elected officials also weighed in on the decision. U.S. Rep. Judy Chu (D-CA), chairwoman of the Congressional Asian Pacific American Caucus, said in a statement she was pleased the Supreme Court found no evidence that Asian-American applicants for the University of Texas at Austin experienced discrimination.
"As the Chair of the Congressional Asian Pacific American Caucus, I am proud to join the Chairs of the Congressional Black Caucus and Congressional Hispanic Caucus in strong support of the 'Supplement Not Supplant' policy," Rep. Judy Chu (CA-27) told NBC News. "It is time to stand up for students of color, and honor the civil rights legacy of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act.
