Press Release

NEW YORK In response to terror attacks in Brussels, Belgium today, Congresswoman Carolyn B. Maloney (NY-12) released the following statement:

“Today, all New Yorkers and all Americans stand in solidarity with and offer our deepest sympathies to the Belgian people as they face the horrors of this morning’s terror attacks. These acts of pure evil cannot and will not be tolerated by the United States and the broader international community.

“These attacks are meant to instill fear and drive us to compromise our values. But we will not let fear cripple us. Instead, we will uphold the democratic ideals that shape free societies like Belgium.

“I commend the New York Police Department for their swift response to the attacks, increasing counter-terrorism efforts in an abundance of caution. Events like these remind us of the necessity of being vigilant and prepared.”
