SACRAMENTO – Assemblywoman Quirk-Silva (D – Orange County) made the following statement today on the Assembly floor in commemoration of Korean American Day:
“Assembly Concurrent Resolution 144 speaks to the proud and rich history of a people in search of opportunity, and the freedoms America presents, to those who want to make a better life for their families and children. Orange County is emblematic of that journey as the vast majority of Koreans in Orange County are foreign born,” said Quirk-Silva. “Korean-Americans have become an integral part of mainstream American society, and have made important contributions as Californians in the field of finance, technology, law, medicine, education, sports, the media, the arts, the military, and also government.”
