Van Hollen Statement on President’s Visit to Mosque in Maryland
Washington, DC – Today Maryland Congressman Chris Van Hollen released the following statement on President Obama’s visit to a mosque in Maryland:
“President Obama’s visit to the Islamic Society of Baltimore highlights the positive impact Muslim communities have on Maryland and our entire nation. Religious freedom is a key foundation of America, and we draw strength from diversity and compassion toward people of all faiths and backgrounds. To confront the many challenges we face, we must be unified in our commitment to build a more inclusive society. I commend the President for his continued effort to fight discrimination and make America stronger.”
