Rep. Jackson Responds to U.S. Capitol Attack
WASHINGTON, D.C. — Congressman Ronny Jackson (TX-13) issued the following statement in response to Wednesday's heinous attack at the U.S. Capitol.
“What happened at the U.S. Capitol today is a stain on our nation. American heroes have died on battlefields all over this world to protect our freedoms and allow peaceful debate in this very building. Today that was taken away from us. Those involved should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
Thank you to the brave U.S. Capitol Police officers who put themselves in harm’s way to protect us and restore order. I also want to thank the many constituents who have reached out to me concerning the safety of myself, my family, and my staff. We are safe, but I ask that you keep our country and U.S. Capitol Police officers injured in today’s attack in your prayers.
The Constitution protects our right to peacefully protest injustices, but violence has no place in our civic discourse. America is better than this.”
