Representative David Cicilline statement on violence outside Wyatt



United States Representative David Cicilline (Democrat, Rhode Island) issued the following statement today:

“The right of a free people to peacefully protest their government is fundamental to our democracy. I am deeply disturbed by reports that several protesters were struck last night by a vehicle driven by an employee of the Wyatt Detention Facility.

“It’s critical that a thorough, independent investigation into this incident be conducted, and that Warden Daniel Martin make himself available to discuss this matter further.”
