LOS ANGELES – California Attorney General Xavier Becerra today responded to reports that a synagogue in Irvine was vandalized yesterday:

“We must all condemn in unambiguous terms the unconscionable vandalism just directed at one of our local synagogues. This comes on the heels of the horrific loss of life America suffered when an anti-Semitic racist brutally attacked congregants at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh,” said Attorney General Becerra. “Hate crimes must never find safe harbor anywhere in America. An attack on one of us is an attack on all of us. We stand with our fellow law enforcement authorities as they investigate this crime to bring the perpetrators to justice.”
