Senator Borrello Condemns The Violence

January 7, 2021

From Senator George Borrello:

“There is no justification for the lawlessness and chaos that descended on our U.S. Capitol yesterday. The scenes of mayhem horrified me, as they did all law-abiding citizens. While peaceful protests are a constitutional right, violence and mob rule have no place in the United States of America.

“My thoughts and prayers are with the families who lost loved ones yesterday, those who were injured, and our congressional colleagues who were subject to an unprecedented assault. There will be time later on to examine what went wrong and why such a large segment of our electorate experienced such a dangerous level of disenfranchisement, but right now is a time to heal and move forward.”
