WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Congressman Ted W. Lieu (D | CA-33) made the following statement in response to the UCLA Undergraduate Students Association Council unanimously passing a resolution condemning all forms of anti-Semitism.

“I applaud the UCLA student government for passing a resolution condemning all forms of anti-Semitism.  As a society we need to recognize anti-Semitism, condemn it, and eliminate it.  Not only is anti-Semitism abhorrent, but it violates federal law.  We have seen a number of recent incidents on college campuses, and it is incumbent on students, faculty, administrators, and elected officials to stand up to such hate.  Each and every student, whether at UCLA or any other university, deserves fair and equal treatment.  When it comes to intolerance, we must embrace a zero tolerance policy—particularly at our centers of learning and inquiry.”
