Press Release

Representative Greg Walden (R-Hood River) released the following statement on the recent shootings in El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio:

"Once again, hate and violence have stricken innocent people going about their everyday lives. The murderer in El Paso should receive quick and certain justice, including any added penalties as a result of his hateful atrocity. We must all stand in solidarity against acts of white supremacy, racism and discrimination and the evil nature of its manifestation in violence. Mylene and I send our prayers and condolences to the people of El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio. This can't keep happening and we must work to put an end to these horrid, senseless crimes."
