Rep. Breen Supports HR 569 Condemning Terrorism in Charlottesville

In response to the violence over the weekend in Charlottesville, VA that left one dead and several others injured, members of the House of Representatives stood united on Wednesday as they approved a House Resolution condemning violence and hate. HR 569 repudiates and condemns white supremacists, neo-Nazis, the Ku Klux Klan, and any other group that espouses hate and seeks to undermine the ideals of Illinois and the nation. The resolution also condemns the acts of violence in Charlottesville as domestic terrorism.

State Representative Peter Breen (R-Lombard) spoke during the floor discussion of the resolution and said, "Hatred is not welcome in any form in the State of Illinois." Click here to watch Breen's full floor comments.
