WASHINGTON, DC - House Democratic Whip Steny H. Hoyer (MD) released the following statement following reports of threats directed against Jewish Community Centers today

"I am deeply alarmed by this latest wave of threats against Jewish Community Centers in states across the country. These threats ought to concern every American, and I urge the President to condemn them and direct his Administration to take meaningful steps to address anti-Semitism.  We must send a strong signal that this hatred will not be tolerated."
