Members of Congress from Broward, Palm Beach and Miami-Dade counties sent a letter today to FBI Director Robert Mueller asking the agency to investigate a recent string of anti-Semitic incidents in South Florida.
The effort, organized by U.S. Rep. Ron Klein, D-Boca Raton, was joined by U.S. Reps. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Weston; Tim Mahoney, D-Venus; Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, R-Miami, Lincoln Diaz-Balart, R-Miami; Mario Diaz-Balart, R-Miami; Robert Wexler, D-Delray Beach; Kendrick Meek, D-Miami, and Alcee Hastings, D-Miramar.
A press release from Klein's office reports that the delegation is "greatly concerned about the temporal pattern of these events." The letter asks the FBI Director to "look into these incidents as a potential trend and report to us about ways that you are working with community leaders to find the perpetrators and prevent future incidents."
