  • In an op-ed for the Lunar New Year, California Reps. Michelle Steel (R-48) and Young Kim (R-39) addressed issues faced by the Asian American community under Democratic leadership.
  • The pair of lawmakers cited the recent surge in reported hate crimes, purported discrimination in higher education institutions’ admissions policies and general increase in prices and taxes as reasons for Asian American communities to activate.
  • They invited Asian Americans to their nearest Republican National Committee community centers, saying, “The time for action is now.”

California Reps. Michelle Steel (R-48) and Young Kim (R-39) are inviting Asian American voters to join the Republican Party as a means to solve current issues that have taken a toll on members of the community.

In a Lunar New Year op-ed published by The Hill, the lawmakers opened by honoring the Year of the Tiger and praising the animal for its qualities, which they say are embedded in the Asian American identity.
