WASHINGTON–Today, Education and the Workforce Committee Chairwoman Virginia Foxx (R-NC) delivered the following remarks, as prepared for delivery, on the House Floor in response to the alarming rise in antisemitic attacks across the country:
"Antisemitism has reared its ugly head on our very shores—it should be extinguished entirely.
"Over the past few weeks, we have seen antisemitic demonstrations take place across the country—turn on the television, open a newspaper, or go online and you’ll find a litany of examples.
"As Rabbi Moshe Hauer mentioned in his testimony before the Subcommittee on Higher Education and Workforce Development recently that the plague of antisemitism has afflicted the United States.
"I agree with Rabbi Hauer’s assessment, and it is incumbent upon us all to stand with the Jewish community, push back on antisemitism wherever and whenever it crops up, and rid our country of this scourge.
"Antisemitism has no place in any civil society, especially the United States—not now, not ever."
