House Rep Debbie Dingell and Barbara Comstock introduce House Resolution condemning ethnic, religious, racial hate crimes

 U.S. House Rep Debbie Dingell (D-MI) Barbara Comstock (R-VA), Congressman Scott Taylor (R-VA) and Carlos Curbelo (R-FL), introduced House Resolution 257 on April 6. This resolution condemns ethnic, religious and racial hate crimes. In times like these, the importance of this resolution cannot be overlooked. Also encouraging is the bipartisan nature of the resolution.

According to Dingell,"The rising wave of hatred, Islamophobia and anti-Semetism facing our nation is unacceptable. This is not who we are. I am proud to work with my friend Congresswoman Comstock to bring together our colleagues - Democrats and Republicans - to reject hate crimes against all members of our community."

Dingell also made clear her view that it is extremely important that Americans not allow fear to be a divisive force in this country, and that we all must unite.

According to Comstock, "Our diversity is what makes our country and our communities great and I'm pleased to join my friend and colleague, Rep. Debbie Dingell, in introducing this resolution." Comstock also stressed the importance of unity in our communities, and that Americans must remain vigilant against those who promote hate and division.
