Press Release

Overland Park, KS — Homeland Security Appropriations Chairman Kevin Yoder (R-KS) issued the following statement in response to this morning's attempted attacks on prominent Democratic leaders and the news media:

“Violence has no place in American politics, and this attempt to harm prominent Democratic leaders and the news media is terrorism, plain and simple. Republicans and Democrats must come together to prioritize civility and ensure that the divides between us never lead to violence. I hope that the perpetrator of this attack can be swiftly brought to justice, and as Chairman of the Homeland Security Appropriations Subcommittee, I will work with the Secret Service and other law enforcement to closely monitor the situation.”
