STATEMENT FROM ASSEMBLYMAN COLIN SCHMITT REGARDING CONGRESSIONAL DEMOCRATS’ CALL TO DISMANTLE YESHIVA EDUCATION

I am deeply concerned by the willingness of senior Democrats in the House of  Representatives, including the likely successor to Nancy Pelosi as House Democrat Leader, to cast aside principles of religious freedom and parental rights in their attack on Yeshiva education. The protection of religious freedom and the rights of parents to make decisions regarding their children’s future are core tenets of our nation. I find it extremely troubling that leading Congressional Democrats would so cavalierly disregard the virtues of a religious education and the Yeshivas that have well-served tens of thousands of people in our state. This is wrong and, as a member of Congress, I will stand up for the rights of Yeshiva parents.
