Ros-Lehtinen, Bipartisan Task Force Applaud Passage of Resolution Condemning Tree of Life Attack

Washington, DC – Members of the House Bipartisan Task Force for Combatting Anti-Semitism applauded the passage of H.Res.1138, a House resolution introduced by the Task Force Co-Chairs and Rep. Mike Doyle (D-PA), to condemn the anti-Semitic attack on the Tree of Life synagogue building on October 27, 2018.

Rep. Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL) is a founding Member of the Task Force. Other Members include: Nita Lowey (D-NY), Chris Smith (R-NJ), Eliot Engel (D-NY), Ted Deutch (D-FL), Kay Granger (R-TX), Marc Veasey (D-TX), and Peter Roskam (R-IL).

The Task Force issued the following statement upon passage of the resolution:

“We are glad to see this resolution pass the House unanimously, which reaffirms the House’s commitment to fighting anti-Semitism in all its forms here at home and around the world. Just yesterday, the FBI released its 2017 hate crime statistics, showing a 37 percent increase in anti-Semitic incidents in the U.S. from 2016. We will carry the memory of those lost in the Tree of Life synagogue building attack, the deadliest anti-Semitic incident in U.S. history, and work to ensure that all Americans are free to worship in peace and security.”
