Today, Representative Adriano Espaillat (NY-13) released the following statement calling for unity after a week of domestic terrorism, hate and political violence in communities across the nation.
“America mourns as our communities are being torn apart by acts of domestic terrorism, hate, and violence,” said Rep. Adriano Espaillat. “Last week, a man executed two African Americans at a grocery store, a Trump supporter sent bombs in the mail to Democratic officials and critics of the President, and an avowed anti-Semite walked into a synagogue and took 11 lives at a place of prayer and worship. We are more divided today than when President Trump first took office. He must fully denounce white nationalism and stop the hate rhetoric and the targeting of minorities fueled by the policies being put forth by his administration. Our communities and our nation are much stronger than this, and we cannot allow hate to fester and continue to tear us apart,” he concluded.
