Apr 9, 2017
CAIRO, Egypt – U.S. Representatives Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), Juan Vargas (D-Calif.), Barbara Comstock (R-Va.) and Claudia Tenney (R-N.Y.) released the following statement from their CODEL in the Middle East in response to the bombings at churches in Egypt this morning:
 
“We are sickened and horrified at the attacks that occurred this morning in Egypt, targeting innocent worshippers as they gathered to celebrate one of the holiest days of the Christian faith. Our thoughts, prayers and deepest condolences are with all those affected by this despicable act of terrorism. The United States must continue working with our allies and partners in the international community to bring a swift end to ISIS and these continuing acts of violence across the world. Egypt is one of our most crucial partners in that fight. Yesterday, we met with President Al-Sisi to discuss how to foster better collaboration as we work together on our common interests of destroying ISIS, Al-Qaeda, and other terrorist groups killing innocent civilians here, across the Middle East, the U.S., and throughout the world. We will continue working together to address these threats and defeat terrorism once and for all.”
 
The US Representatives met with President Al-Sisi yesterday during meetings in Cairo as the first-stop of a bipartisan Congressional delegation trip to the Middle East focused on strengthening relationships with strategic partners and fostering cooperation in the fight against ISIS. 
 
The trip includes Congressman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), Congressman Juan Vargas (D-Calif.), Congresswoman Barbara Comstock (R-Va.) and Congresswoman Claudia Tenney (R-N.Y.).
