Wed, Jan 6th 2021 04:55 pm

Congressman Chris Jacobs released the following statement Wednesday afternoon, as protestors descended upon Washington, D.C., to protest the recent election for president, and the pending transition of power from Donald Trump to Joe Biden:

“I condemn the violence and destruction that is taking place in our nation’s capital in the strongest possible terms. While our country cherishes peaceful protest, this current behavior is unacceptable and has no place in a democracy. I urge all protestors to immediately and peacefully leave the Capitol building and the surrounding area and to follow the instructions of law enforcement personnel.”
