FBI, Jewish Federation of Greater El Paso Come Together to Urge Public to Report Threats, Suspicious Activity

The FBI has reaffirmed its commitment to protect the Jewish community in El Paso and West  Texas from any potential threats after the Texas synagogue attack. 

Special Agent in Charge Jeffrey R. Downey of the FBI El Paso Field Office joined Mr. Robert  French, Executive Director of Jewish Federation of Greater El Paso and the Jewish Community  Foundation of El Paso, in urging the public to report any threats or suspicious activity.  

The FBI El Paso Field Office has a very close and enduring relationship with the Jewish  community in El Paso,” SAC Downey said. “I have personally reached out to several Jewish  leaders to assure them we will never lose sight of the threat extremists pose to the Jewish  community and to other religious, racial, and ethnic groups. We continue to work with the  Jewish Federation of Greater El Paso, the Anti-Defamation League, and others to protect  members of the Jewish community from all potential threats. Additionally, we will continue to  establish and build trusted relationships across West Texas, maintain open dialogue, and share  critical information. We ask that you reach out to us if you see something suspicious or  threatening.” 

“We have always maintained a strong and open connection with the FBI El Paso Field Office.  Not just the Jewish Federation of Greater El Paso, but our local Jewish schools and places of  worship, too,” Mr. French said. “They have always made themselves fully available in terms of  safety, training and consultation. This act of terror in Colleyville, has only strengthened our  resolve to work together to combat hatred, bigotry, anti-Semitism and intolerance towards us and  other religious, ethnic and racial groups. As International Holocaust Remembrance Day  approaches next week (January 27th) – it is incumbent upon us to ensure that the lessons learned  during the darkest stain on humanity are not forgotten.”
