Press Release

Brooklyn, NY – Today, Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (NY-08) released the following statement in response to the arrest of three Brooklyn terror suspects:

“This development is a chilling reminder of why we must fund the Department of Homeland Security immediately. These three terror suspects appear to have been plotting to take the lives of innocent Americans, including New Yorkers. The FBI, NYPD and law enforcement community should be commended for their diligent work in this case. The time for political gamesmanship by House Republicans has come to an end.”
