Press Release

The Bronx, NY - Congressman José E. Serrano released the following statement in response to the Pittsburg synagogue shooting on October 29, 2018:

“It is beyond distressing that eleven people were killed on Saturday simply for practicing their faith.  This act of senseless hatred and violence has no place in America. My thoughts and prayers are with the innocent victims and their loved ones,” said Congressman José E. Serrano. “As we mourn their loss, we need to rededicate ourselves to action in order to stamp out hatred and bigotry in our nation. We must have serious conversations about the normalization of hate speech over the past two years, and finally vote in Congress to keep dangerous weapons out of dangerous hands.  No one of any religion, race, or creed should fear for their lives simply because of who they are.”
