(Queens, NY) – House Democratic Caucus Chairman Joe Crowley (D-NY) issued the following statement on comments made by Sen. Rand Paul:

“I am incredibly disappointed that Sen. Paul would correlate President Trump’s racially insensitive commentary to his upbringing in Queens.

“Queens is one of the most diverse places on earth, comprised of some of hardest working, most self-sacrificing people you’ll find. Donald Trump and the Republican Party are the ones to blame here. Donald Trump for being racist and the GOP for enabling him.”
