New York, NY. — Today, Congressman Lou Correa (D-CA), alongside members of the House Committee on Homeland Security, visited New York City to observe the 20th anniversary of the September 11 attacks and attended a roundtable discussion with local first responders.
Rep. Lou Correa said, “As the 20th anniversary of September 11, 2001 approaches, it important to highlight the brave men and women who responded to the call for help without hesitation. Hearing the first responders recalling their experience during the attack provides the committee with perspective on what the victims and their families experienced and the current hardships their families continue to endure. We will always honor the victims’ memories by continuing to support our first responders and their families. Today’s roundtable does just that. Their memory is a somber reminder of the work this Congress must do to honor our commitments to first responders and the victims of senseless crimes. It also reminds us of the tremendous responsibility we always have to be ready to defend and protect our nation and our citizens. “
