The Republican Party of Guam has condemned the storming of the U.S. Congress building in Washington D.C. by supporters of President Trump.
In a statement, the Guam GOP said it stands in solidarity with many in the nation in condemning the actions of violent protesters who have and continue to cause harm in the nation’s capital.
“We stand for democracy, fair elections, and support the assembly of peaceful protests, BUT this DOES NOT include storming into the halls of Congress and creating fear and disruption, AND MUST END IMMEDIATELY,” the Guam Republican Party stressed.
The GOP statement added: “Let us pray for peace, solidarity, unity, and for the safety of those who work in or around the US Capitol Building, including members of the United States Capitol Police who are in harm’s way. Let us pray for a reasonable outcome from the US Congress in finalizing the results of the 2020 Presidential Election and let us remember that what makes America the beacon of democracy is assuring that our election processes are fair and balanced.”
Republican Party Senator James C. Moylan also issued a separate statement saying that the actions taking place in our nation’s capital are unacceptable, and those who have destroyed property or have hurt others in some physical capacity should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
“Their actions do not represent the principles of democracy or are symbolic of peaceful protests. Let us pray for those who were and continue to be in harm’s way so that they can safely get home to their families. This includes both those who work within the halls of Congress, as well as members of the US Capitol Police,” Moylan said.
