SENATOR MENENDEZ STATEMENT ON REP. GOODE'S REMARKS

For Immediate Release
Contact: Desiree Ramos, 201-803-4537

"America was founded by people seeking religious freedom. Congressman Virgil H. Goode's statements against Congressman-elect Keith Ellison are an attack on the sanctity of religious freedom that all Americans are guaranteed under the Constitution.

"Rep. Goode should apologize to Mr. Ellison and to all Americans for his intolerance of the diversity which makes our nation a beacon of hope around the world. As elected officials, we are called to represent all Americans, regardless of race, creed, or class. I sincerely hope Rep. Goode will recognize the error of his words."
