Rep. Jimmy Gomez Introduces Bipartisan House Resolution in Recognition of Korean American Day

Washington, D.C. — Today, Rep. Jimmy Gomez (CA-34) introduced H.Res. 38, observing Korean American Day and the contributions Korean American citizens have made to the United States.
“Korean American Day is an opportunity for all of us to recognize the countless contributions the Korean American community has made to American life, from the private and public sectors to the world of art, education, and entrepreneurship," said Rep. Gomez. "Since arriving in the United States in 1903 – starting off as farmworkers, wage laborers, and section hands – the story of Korean American immigrants and the subsequent success of their descendants is one that many other Americans can relate to. As the congressional representative of the largest Korean American community in the country, I am proud to reintroduce the Korean American Day House Resolution on the 116th anniversary of their arrival to the United States.”
