TOLEDO, OH (WTOL) - Ohio State Senator Sherrod Brown shared his views on Tuesday's terror attack in New York City Wednesday. This came after President Trump was accused of politicizing it.
"I voted to get rid of this visa waiver issue earlier which I think would have made things better but the point is that Congress needs to pass an immigration law that works for our country, it means better screening, better vetting," said Brown
He also added that the country doesn't need to point fingers, but rather work out the issues of immigration.
Ohio Senator Rob Portman tweeted about the attack Tuesday.
Portman also mentioned the attack during his efforts to support the Countering Foreign Propaganda and Disinformation Act Wednesday.
The Islamic Center of Greater Toledo released a statement as well, condemning the suspect responsible of the attack while offering condolences and prayers to the family and friends who were affected.
A prayer service in memory of the victims will be held on Friday at 2:15 p.m. at the Islamic Center.
