Raja Calls for Americans To Stand Shoulder to Shoulder Against Hate in Response to Bombing of Minnesota Mosque

August 7, 2017
Press Release

SCHAUMBURG, IL – Congressman Raja Krishnamoorthi released the following statement in response to the bombing of a Bloomington, MN mosque on Saturday:

“Over the weekend, someone threw a bomb through the window of a Minneapolis-area mosque during morning prayers. While no one was injured in the attack, this bombing is another example of the hate-motivated crimes we’ve seen committed with increasing frequency across the country. I’m confident the FBI will make every effort in its pursuit of the assailant, but responding to this attack and preventing the next one must not be the responsibility of law enforcement alone. Americans from every background, race, and creed must stand shoulder to shoulder against all acts of hate and their root causes.”
