Press Release

SCHAUMBURG, IL – In response to reports regarding ongoing violence against the Rohingya community in Myanmar, Congressman Krishnamoorthi released the following statement:

“I am deeply concerned about the ongoing atrocities being committed against the Rohingya community. Since late August, at least 146,000 Rohingya have fled into neighboring Bangladesh, Indonesia, and Malaysia, and hundreds have died during the military crackdown. The international community must do more to provide aid to fleeing refugees and pressure Myanmar’s government to cease the violence.”
