Congressman Gonzalez Statement on Tree of Life Synagogue Shooting
WASHINGTON - Congressman Vicente Gonzalez (TX-15) issued the following statement in response to Saturday’s shooting at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
“It is with a heavy heart that I mourn the loss of life at the Tree of Life Synagogue and condemn this hateful act of violence,”Congressman Gonzalez said. “No one in this country should live in fear or feel threatened in their schools, homes, or places of worship. Anti-Semitism has no place within our shores and we as a country must stand together against such hatred, intolerance, and violence. This is the same hatred the Latino community has experienced in recent times. We must also stand strong with our Jewish brother and sisters and say ‘enough is enough!’ We have no choice but to hold those who entice such behavior responsible for their actions.”
