Press Release

PATCHOGUE, NY - Congressman Lee Zeldin (R, NY-1) reiterated the following statement after continued violent attacks on New York’s Asian American and Pacific Islander community over the weekend: 

“The violent attacks targeting New York’s amazing AAPI community are wholly un-American and disgusting. These victims have loved ones and passionately strive to achieve the American dream and strengthen their community around them. They deserve freedom, economic opportunity and safety without having to experience or even fear the violent hatred they are witnessing right now. Those responsible must be brought to justice!”
