Muslim Advocates Urges Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez to Retract Her Comments Suggesting Millions of Muslims Support ISIS
December 11, 2015
It is unconscionable that Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez would suggest tens of millions of Muslims, including American Muslims, support ISIS and their murderous campaign. Congresswoman Sanchez’s comments were ignorant, baseless, disgraceful, and only serve to heighten anxiety among Americans during a time of rising hatred and incidents of physical assault against Muslims here in the U.S.
The Congresswoman has yet to apologize for her remarks, and her follow-up statement did not in fact clarify or rectify her earlier statement. She should unequivocally apologize, retract her earlier statement, and work to bring Americans together during this time of crisis.
