WASHINGTON — DNC Chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz released the following statement in celebration of Korean American Day:

“Today commemorates 113 years since the first immigrants from Korea arrived in Honolulu to become the nationwide community of 1.7 million Korean-Americans that it is today. Our nation has been blessed by generations of Korean-Americans, notably, in the arts, sciences, entertainment, business, military and public service. These contributions have and continue to strengthen the fabric of our country’s identity and prosperity. I am thankful and proud to join the Korean-American community across this country in recognition of their sacrifice and celebration of their accomplishments.”
