US Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen issued a statement regarding the deadly terror attack at two mosques in New Zealand, calling it "abhorrent." "Religious liberty is a hallmark of this country. Attacks on peaceful people in their place of worship are abhorrent and will not be tolerated. The Department strongly stands with those of all faiths as they seek to worship in peace and we will continue to work with stakeholders to protect the ability of all to worship freely and without fear," she said in the statement.
