NH politicians speak out about Paris terrorist attacks
WASHINGTON - 12 were killed in a terrorist attack on satirical French newspaper Charlile Hebdo in Paris on Wednesday, and N.H. politicians are weighing in.
Sen. Kelly Ayotte stated this morning in an interview with Fox News, "Those foreign fighters are of deep concern for us because, for example, in France many have gone to fight (with terrorists) and joined in Syria and Iraq. We have a visa waiver program with France and if we dont have track of all those individuals they could also travel to the United States of America." The complete interview is available by following this link.
Sen. Jeanne Shaheen stated in a press release, "I am deeply saddened and outraged by the horrific shooting today in Paris, and I strongly condemn this cowardly act of terrorism. France is not alone in mourning the lives lost in this attack, and my thoughts and prayers are with the victims, their loved ones and the French people. As a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, I remain committed to standing united with our allies and the rest of the civilized world against terrorism in all its forms."
Congresswoman Ann Kuster added in a press release of her own, "I am horrified by the shocking terrorist attack that took place in Paris this morning. There's no place in our society for such vile acts, and no one should ever have to fear for their safety in his or her place of work. We pray for the swift capture of these cowardly terrorists, who must be brought to justice. As Americans, we stand with the French people in mourning their devastating loss, and our thoughts and prayers are with the victims' families and loved ones."
