Senate GOP Leader Bob Huff Applauds Supreme Court Decision on Affirmative Action

Tuesday, April 22, 2014

Senate Republican Leader Bob Huff (R-Diamond Bar) today issued to following statement regarding the recent U.S. Supreme Court decision on Michigan's ban on affirmative action:

"Today's decision simply affirms that bans on race-based college admissions practices are legal and appropriate, and I applaud that decision.

"There have been recent efforts by some to undermine California's race-blind college admissions and hiring polices, but recent news showing that Latinos are faring well under California's voter-approved Proposition 209 questions the value of those efforts.

"Our system isn't broken. In fact, it's working. Let's continue to focus on policies that bring Californians together, not wedge us apart."
