“As New Yorkers, we know all too well the devastating reality terrorist acts have had on our country. The thoughts and prayers of all New Yorkers and the entire nation are with the people of Boston.

In the wake of today¹s tragedy, we must send a clear and unequivocal message to anyone who attempts to harm our country with acts of terror: their deeds will not go unpunished. Those who target innocent people will be brought to justice, held accountable and prosecuted to the fullest extent of all laws.”
