Statement From Congressman Young
March 29, 2013
JUNEAU, AK - Alaskan Congressman Don Young released the following statement regarding an interview on Ketchikan radio earlier this week:
"I apologize for the insensitive term I used during an interview in Ketchikan, Alaska. There was no malice in my heart or intent to offend; it was a poor choice of words. That word, and the negative attitudes that come with it, should be left in the 20th century, and I’m sorry that this has shifted our focus away from comprehensive immigration reform."
