“My heartfelt condolences go out today to the victims and families of those killed in the religious sanctuaries of the Al Noor Mosque and Linwood Mosque in Christchurch, New Zealand yesterday.”


“Religious hate and violence have no place in our world as we seek to bring all communities together as one Human Race. My sympathies and renewed support to the Muslim community, the city of Christchurch and the nation of New Zealand.  Our state, communities and each individual needs to speak out to ensure deterrence and zero tolerance for those seeking to spread fear, hate and violence.”
