June 2, 2021

U.S. Reps. Adriano Espaillat, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Mario Díaz-Balart, and Jaime Herrera Beutler as co-chairs of the bipartisan Congressional Latino-Jewish Caucus.

Released the following statement in response to the recent rise in antisemitic incidents in the United States and globally:

“We are deeply concerned about the increasing antisemitic expressions and violence in American streets and globally. We urge U.S. political, civic, and faith leaders to denounce the use of hateful, antisemitic rhetoric which endangers not only the Jewish community but also damages our national social fabric.

“Similar expressions of antisemitism are a problem in Latin America as well, a region hit particularly hard by the pandemic and facing prospects of severe economic and civil decline. We notice with deep concern an erosion of democratic rule, the rise of authoritarianism, and the growing malign influence of China, Russia, and Iran.

“…communities who have faced discrimination and hate must always stand in solidarity.”

“Our Caucus will continue to work to strengthen trilateral ties among the United States, Latin America, and Israel based on shared values and growing common interests. We will continue to build bridges between our nation’s Jewish and Latino communities, for communities who have faced discrimination and hate must always stand in solidarity.”
