"The reprehensible threats made to Muslim leaders throughout our state must be handled by federal and local law enforcement with the utmost seriousness. There is no doubt in my mind that the threats were acts of hate intended to instill fear in the Muslim community. I join my friends in the Muslim community as we call for the highest level of security for the victims of these dangerous messages. Together we stand in unity against the perpetrators of such awful crimes."
