La Habra, CA – – Saying it is a matter of public safety, today Republican Congressional Candidate Young Kim (CA-39) urged the Orange County Board of Supervisors to condemn and proceed with legal action against the California’s sanctuary city and state laws.
Kim also praised Orange County Sheriff Sandra Hutchens’ announcement yesterday that they will begin releasing the names of prisoners scheduled for releases, including those in the country illegally, a move that will help federal authorities enforce federal immigration laws.
“As a legal immigrant to the United States, I see California’s sanctuary state law as an affront to law-abiding citizens and a threat to public safety,” said Kim. “I fully support the Orange County Sheriff and urge the Board of Supervisors to do what is necessary to protect the people of our communities and enforce the law.”
Kim continued, “This is just more shortsighted policy from the far left in Sacramento that puts our security at risk; I won’t stand for it now and will fight against it in Washington.”
Young Kim is the leading candidate for Congress to succeed U.S. Representative Ed Royce, who is retiring at the end of his current term. Royce has endorsed Kim.
Young Kim is a small-business owner and former financial analyst. Her public service began more than 25 years ago, when Young went to work for U.S. Representative Ed Royce, eventually becoming his Director of Community Operations. Young and her husband Charles are the proud parents of four grown children.
