Lipinski Issues Statement About the Need to Protect the Dignity of All Our Neighbors Despite Differences

Congressman Dan Lipinski (IL-3) released the following statement today:

“Freedom and tolerance are key American values, but there continues to be incidents where these values are violated at the expense of Muslim Americans.  This is simply wrong.  No one should be denied their dignity and their rights as Americans because of where they come from or their religion.  That is completely unacceptable in our nation and in our communities.  Americans come from many different places around the world and have different religious and other beliefs.  But we must all strive to be accepting of our differences as we work together to protect our common American values.  I want my Muslim constituents to know that I will continue to stand up for their freedom and dignity, and that my door will always be open to them.”
