Assemblymember Monique Limón recognizes World Refugee Day

Tuesday, June 19, 2018

(Sacramento) In an effort to shed light on the recent “zero tolerance” policy enacted by the Trump administration, Assemblymember Monique Limón (D-Santa Barbara) spoke during a recent Assembly floor session in support of House Resolution (HR) 91 to commemorate World Refugee Day (June 20,2018) which honors the courage, strength, and determination of the women, men, and children who are forced to flee their homes due to threats of conflict, violence, and persecution. “I cannot even begin to imagine what children, and young adults are feeling at this very moment who have been intentionally separated from their families,” said Assemblymember Limón, “This resolution is more important than ever because so many in our communities are witnessing what it feels like to be scared, to panic, to see kids separated from the individuals who most matter in their lives. There is no short term or long term gains. We all lose. Families lose. The kids lose.” To hear more of Assemblymember Limón’s comments, watch this Assembly Access video.
