November 14, 2015
Press Release

WASHINGTON – Congresswoman Maxine Waters (CA-43), Ranking Member of the Committee on Financial Services, released the following statement today on the terrorist attacks in Paris, France:

“My heart is deeply saddened by the brazen terrorist attacks in Paris, France that have killed and injured so many innocent people.  My sincerest condolences and prayers are with the victims and their families.  These recent terrorist attacks remind us of the perilous dangers we face due to violence and brutality of extremists groups who go to great lengths to destroy democratic ideals, freedoms and values.”

“Let us also remember the many innocent people around the world whose lives have been threatened or destroyed by violent terrorist groups. Such ruthless terrorists use horrific and deadly methods to cause people to live in fear while attempting to engage in activities that should not be taken for granted such as going to work, school, religious worship and social events.”  

“My hope is that, as an international community, we can work together to oppose violent terrorist groups who are determined to create fear and panic across the world.  We stand in solidarity with the people of France and are committed to providing assistance in the days ahead.”
