"As many have pointed out, this aggressor is not representative of our fair city. Like we always do, the good people of the Treasure Valley will rally together in support of these families and all those affected," said Tara Wolfson, director of the Idaho Office for Refugees. "We must fight fear and foul intent by working towards a just society with love, understanding and compassion.”
"We are shocked and saddened by this senseless attack on members of the Boise refugee community," said Julianne D. Tzul, executive director of the International Rescue Committee in Boise. "This attack does not reflect, in any way, the tremendous welcoming nature of the Boise community we have worked with so closely since opening in 2006."
"I ask all Boiseans to join me in sending thoughts and prayers for the injured and their families at this terrible time, " said Boise Mayor Dave Bieter. "As Boiseans, we come together not only to condemn this vile act, but also to embrace those among us seeking refuge from tyranny, suffering and war. It is who we are and who we will continue to be.
