Senator Jen McEwen Responds to 51st Anniversary of Roe v Wade

Minnesota Senators Condemn Senator Ron Latz’s Remarks on Palestinian Children

ST. PAUL, Minn. — Yesterday, our colleague, Senator Ron Latz, held a press conference and used dehumanizing, inflammatory language and rhetoric in his remarks about Palestinians. He recited a litany of hateful, prejudicial and demonstrably false claims, describing Gaza as “poisonous,” and asserting that “Palestinian youth dream of the opportunity to achieve glory and even martyrdom by killing as many Jews as possible.” Through his language, Senator Latz assigned nefarious motives to Palestinian children, describing them all as aspiring murderers. His remarks were irresponsible and dangerous. 

Senator Jennifer A. McEwen makes Statement on Hamas-Israel Conflict
