From the Office Of U.S. Rep. Ben Ray Luján:

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Rep. Ben Ray Luján of New Mexico’s Third District released the following statement Sunday after a mass shooting in an Orlando nightclub.

“Today our nation grieves in the wake of shocking news that 50 people were killed and more than 50 people were injured in a mass shooting in Orlando. This heinous crime has left us searching for answers and in the coming days we will learn more behind the motivation, which was no doubt rooted in hatred. 

“In a month when our country celebrates the contributions of the LGBT community, this attack is particularly distressing. My thoughts and prayers are with all those who were killed or injured, as well as with the people of Orlando and the LGBT community.”
