Maloney Statement on Anti-Asian Gun Violence in Atlanta

Washington, D.C. – Today, Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney (NY-18) released the following statement in response to the violent attacks at Atlanta-area massage parlors that killed eight people on Tuesday night.

“Randy and I are praying for the victims of last night’s mass shooting in Atlanta. Our hearts go out to their families and loved ones. 

“These attacks come at a time when anti-Asian violence is spreading like a disease in America. Let me be clear: this is a man-made crisis. The former President and his enablers used fear of COVID-19 and its origins to engender intolerance and hate and gave a platform to racist, bigoted terminology and assumptions about the pandemic. 

“This narrative must be stopped, and those responsible for these heinous acts must be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. We need to commit ourselves as a country to anti-racism and stand together against hatred and violence in every form.”
