Congressman Young Statement on Interview with KRBD Radio

JUNEAU, AK – Alaskan Congressman Don Young released the following statement regarding a comment he made during a radio interview with KRBD in Ketchikan, Alaska:


“During a sit down interview with Ketchikan Public Radio this week, I used a term that was commonly used during my days growing up on a farm in Central California.  I know that this term is not used in the same way nowadays and I meant no disrespect.

“Migrant workers play an important role in America’s workforce, and earlier in the said interview, I discussed the compassion and understanding I have for these workers and the hurdles they face in obtaining citizenship. America must once and for all tackle the issue of immigration reform.”
