Statement From Attorney General James On The Mosque Attacks In New Zealand

NEW YORK—In response to the attacks at two mosques in New Zealand, Attorney General Letitia James released the following statement:  

“Today is a dark day for the entire world. When a racist and bigoted individual storms a sacred place of worship and senselessly murders innocent people, we feel the deep pain in communities across the globe. We must stand together – people of all religions, races, and ethnicities – to denounce this horrific act of hate and show that it will never be tolerated here. To the Muslim communities from New Zealand to New York, you are welcome here and we stand with you today, and every day.”
