NEW YORK, NY — In response to this morning’s attempted terror attack at New York’s Port Authority terminal in Midtown Manhattan, Congresswoman Carolyn B. Maloney (NY-12) released the following statement:

“This morning’s attempted terrorist attack is another somber reminder that New York City, a beacon of freedom, hope, and the American Dream remains the top terrorist target in the country.  I wish the three people injured today a swift and full recovery.

“By attacking New York’s subway system, this terrorist was trying to attack our city’s lifeblood and strike fear into the hearts of everyday New Yorkers. But New Yorkers will always persevere in the face adversity. We will never allow terrorists to dictate how we live. Just as we always have, we will stay New York strong and carry on together after this attack.

“I am deeply grateful for the tireless work of our first responders and law enforcement agencies for their swift response today and all they do every day to protect our city and remind all New Yorkers, ‘if you see something, say something.’”
