Congressman Mark Meadows’ Statement on Charlottesville

Washington, D.C. – Congressman Mark Meadows (NC-11) released the following statement on the tragic, criminal events that took place in Charlottesville over the weekend:

"I was devastated to learn of the tragic events that took place in Charlottesville over the weekend. This type of violence, racism, and bigotry has absolutely no place in America, and those responsible for this weekend's act of terrorism should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. One of the things that makes our nation so great is that we are a melting pot of individuals from all races and creeds united together under the principles of liberty, freedom, and the rule of law. Vile acts like these fly in the face of what it means to be an American and have no place in our civil society. We as citizens must stand united in opposition to this hate and denounce it in no uncertain terms.”
