Jul 2, 2016 | Press Releases

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) today issued the following statement regarding the terrorist attack in Bangladesh: 

“My thoughts and prayers are with the people of Bangladesh and all those countries who lost citizens in this horrific attack‎. I was saddened to learn this morning that one of the victims is Abinta Kabir, a college student from Miami who was visiting family and friends.
“From Paris to Brussels to Istanbul to now Dhaka, terrorists continue to answer the call to murder innocent civilians in the name of the Islamic State. Under President Obama’s watch this scourge has metastasized due to failed policies that insufficiently address the root cause of this problem. Without a substantial change in posture, I fear we will only see more attacks like we have today.”
