Press Release

PATCHOGUE, N.Y. - Today, U.S. Representative Lee Zeldin (R, NY-1), member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, issued the following statement following this morning’s attempted terrorist attack in New York City:

“This morning’s cowardly terrorist attack was another failed attempt to strike at the heart of the freedoms and liberties that make our country the greatest in the world. Once again, we are reminded of the evil that exists in our world and the radicalized terrorists who seek to destroy lives, communities, and nations across the globe, but as we have seen time and time again, this attack will only make New Yorkers and Americans stronger. The finest and bravest law enforcement officers on earth are right here in New York and the greatest military ever stands ready at the tip of the spear. I have every faith that they will do absolutely everything they can to accurately identify and eradicate this threat and protect our way of life.”
