Contact: Senator Alberta Darling, 1-608-266-5830
MADISON – On Tuesday, after another threat to the Harry & Rose Samson Family Jewish Community Center in Whitefish Bay, State Senator Alberta Darling issued the following statement:
“I have been in contact the office of Attorney General Brad Schimel and the JCC. I’m encouraged the Wisconsin Department of Justice is involved in the investigation of these incidents.
I’m also encouraged that today all 100 U.S. Senators signed a letter urging the Trump administration to take action against these hate crimes. Last week, President Trump denounced these incidents of hate. Our nation is uniting against these cowards who threaten our communities.
In America, we don’t settle our differences by making bomb threats. I stand with my friends at the JCC. I know they will not be intimidated.
The JCC is an important part of our community. The center is a peaceful and loving place for families. I condemn the Anti-Semitic act of intimidation against the JCC and our community.
I look forward to law enforcement bringing those responsible to justice.”
Senator Darling represents portions of Milwaukee, Ozaukee, Washington and Waukesha Counties.
