Statement from Congressman Dan Donovan on Manhattan Vehicle Attack

October 31, 2017
Press Release

“Investigations into the vehicle attack in Manhattan are ongoing, and the FBI is treating this tragic incident as an act of terror. The NYPD responded with the efficiency and effectiveness that is standard for the greatest police force in the world. I wish the injured a speedy recovery, and pray for comfort for the families of those who passed. New York City will always be stronger than the terrorists who wish us harm.

“I continue to monitor the situation and am in close contact with the NYPD, Department of Homeland Security, and FBI. As more details come to light, I plan to work in my subcommittee and with my colleagues on the Homeland Security Committee to advance policies that can help prevent these types of attacks in the future.”

-- Congressman Dan Donovan chairs the House Subcommittee on Emergency Preparedness, Response, and Communications.
