Jun 12, 2016
Press Release

Washington, DC- Congressman Chris Stewart (R-Utah) released the following statement regarding the horrific attack in Orlando:

"Once again innocent Americans have suffered a horrendous attack. We can't allow this to become the new normal.  

The FBI is investigating the Orlando mass shooting as a terrorist attack. As a member of the House Intelligence Committee I will do everything in my power to ensure that we successfully fight Islamic Terrorism- both at home and abroad.

This attack serves as a reminder that Islamic terrorism is a threat to every community in America. We know Islamic terrorists target Christians, the LGBT community, women and a variety of other groups.  They are nothing but evil and they must be stopped. Which is why we as national leaders need to strengthen our national security to prevent future attacks.

I hope you will join me in not only sending our thoughts and prayers to everyone affected by today's terrible events, but also join me in seeking ways to bolster our security at home and abroad."
