Blumenthal Statement on Attack in Nice, France

[WASHINGTON, DC] – U.S. Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) released the following statement in response to the terrorist attack yesterday in Nice, France:

“The unspeakable brutality of yesterday’s horrific attack in France shocks and staggers our minds and hearts. As our hearts go out to France, our vigilance in America must be heightened along with our determination to fight extremist violence abroad and reduce the threat at home. More vigorous collection and sharing of intelligence is vital among our allies in this battle against terrorist attacks, and more effective action against ISIL and other violent extremists outside our nation can help make us safer here. We stand in solidarity with France and all nations fighting terrorist violence.”
