U.S. Rep. Grace Meng (D-Queens), a Co-Chair of the House Bipartisan Task Force for Combating Antisemitism, today issued the following statement condemning swastikas found on newspaper racks distributing Jewish publications in Kew Gardens Hills, Queens.

"I am shocked and outraged over this disgusting vandalism, and I condemn it. This antisemitism is completely unacceptable, especially during Yom Kippur which is the holiest day of the year in the Jewish faith. Hate will never be tolerated in Queens. There is no place for it in our borough or anywhere in our society, and we must all denounce these despicable acts whenever and wherever they occur."
