President Barack Obama’s United Nations speech Tuesday about the attack on U.S. citizens in Libya and angry protests that have erupted throughout the Muslim world evoked strong reactions from supporters and critics alike.

Congressman Adam Schiff, D-Pasadena, said he thought Obama’s speech was “powerful” and necessary in light of recent anti-Western protests around the world, many of which have been linked to an anti-Islam film produced in Southern California.

Statement on New Congressional District Maps

The Commission did a commendable job balancing Voting Rights Act and community of interest concerns by working in a transparent manner. Now that the Commission has concluded its work and certified the new maps, I am excited about the new 28th district, which includes the Burbank, Glendale and Pasadena areas I currently represent, along with many of the surrounding communities that I represented previously for many years in Congress and the State Senate. I have worked closely with these neighborhoods on many issues, and I would be honored to represent this district in the House of Representatives.
