Congressman Royce Applauds Decision to Let Comfort Women Statue Stand
Washington, D.C. – U.S. Representative Ed Royce (R-Fullerton), Chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, issued the below statement after the U.S. Supreme Court declined to hear a suit seeking the removal of the comfort women statue in Glendale’s Central Park:
“I applaud the Supreme Court's decision to let the Glendale Peace Memorial stand. By remembering the past, including the women who suffered immensely, we help ensure these atrocities are never committed again. Now that the highest court in the land has spoken, I hope those who’ve wasted years trying to rewrite history will finally move on.”
