My thoughts are with the people of Brussels and Belgium today. Hundreds of families have been devastated as people were simply going about their daily lives of commuting, working or heading out on a vacation. Brussels is a city filled with diplomats and military officials, families and working people – the heart and a reflection of a dynamic and interconnected Europe.

Wasserman Schultz Statement on Brussels Terrorist Attacks

 U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (FL-23), a member of the House Appropriations State and Foreign Operations Subcommittee, released the following statement today after the terrorist attacks in Brussels, Belgium:

“My thoughts are with the people of Brussels and Belgium today. Hundreds of families have been devastated as people were simply going about their daily lives of commuting, working or heading out on a vacation. Brussels is a city filled with diplomats and military officials, families and working people – the heart and a reflection of a dynamic and interconnected Europe.

“The United States stands ready with its ally Belgium and its partners in Europe to investigate these attacks and to continue to root out and defeat terrorist networks around the world.  In such a massive undertaking there will be setbacks and tragedies, however our resolve is firm and our commitment to our shared values unwavering. 

“I look forward with determination in the coming days to learning more about what happened in Brussels and what additional role Congress can play in keeping Americans and our allies safe, while echoing President Obama’s call for the world to better unite in the fight against the scourge of terror.”
