Congresswoman Young Kim, representing the 39th district of California joined the Guy Benson Show to react to the rising level of crime in cities across the country and in her state of California.
Rep. Kim said, “Furthermore, in the midst of a supply chain crisis and container backlog. At the ports of L.A. and Long Beach, which makes up the San Pedro Port complex, the criminals are breaking into cargo containers on the Union Pacific Railway and stealing hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of goods, and we’ve seen this in the news all the time. And according to the Union Pacific, they say thefts have increased. As you heard, hundred sixty percent on L.A. County, rail track with 90 containers broken into each day. You know what? I attribute this to California’s Prop 47 and L.A. County D.A. Gascon’s zero bail policies. They are contributing to these public safety crises and endangering our communities.”
