WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Rep. Grace Meng (D-NY) today issued the following statement after the Anti-Defamation League’s new report on the historic rise in anti-Semitic incidents in New York.
“It is deeply disturbing to see that the number of anti-Semitic incidents in New York rose by over 90 percent in 2017 compared to 2016,” said Meng. “Queens, the area that I represent in Congress, saw the largest increase in incidents rising from 11 to 39 from 2016 to 2017. As Americans, we must come together and stop these anti-Semitic attacks.”
