Rep. Moore Statement on Acid Attack in Milwaukee

"I am sending my deepest sympathies to Mahud Villalaz and his family."

“I’m horrified to learn about this violent act of hate inflicted on an innocent member of our community. I am sending my deepest sympathies to Mahud Villalaz and his family.

I thank the Milwaukee Police Department for their efforts to find the perpetrator who committed this awful attack.

No person should feel vulnerable because of their ethnicity or identity. The bigotry and hatred driving the nationwide rise in hate crimes aims to sow division, but Milwaukee will not stand for it. Instead, we must continue to embrace and love our neighbors. The fabric of our communities is strengthened by our diversity, which makes Milwaukee such a special place to live.”
