Cardin Statement on Tragic Shooting in Kansas

U.S. Senator Benjamin L. Cardin (D-MD) issued the following statement regarding the tragic violence in Johnson County, Kansas:

“I was deeply saddened to hear about the tragic shooting in Kansas,” said U.S. Senator Benjamin L. Cardin, Chairman of the U.S. Helsinki Commission.  “The hate that motivated this act of violence flies in the face of everything we believe as Americans.  We have made so much progress against prejudice and intolerance in this nation, but this senseless killing illustrates just how far we still have to go.  Anti-Semitism has no place in our society, and I urge all Americans to stand with the people of Overland Park.  My prayers are with the victims’ families at this difficult time.”
