Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Nydailynews.com: “Schumer calls for more protection of N.Y. houses of worship after Texas synagogue attack”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) calls for additional federal funds to protect New York houses of worship after the recent hostage attack on a synagogue in Colleyville, Texas.

The powerful Senate majority leader said that the Jan. 15 attack has put New York’s religious communities on edge — and the feds need to help.

“The hostage situation that we watched unfold at the Texas synagogue and other local incidents of intolerance at the places we worship or congregate here have New Yorkers very worried,” Schumer said. “Protecting our religious spaces, like our synagogues, mosques, churches, and more demands more help.”

Schumer was expected to announce the new push at a Wednesday morning press conference with religious and non-profit leaders outside the United Jewish Appeal on Manhattan’s Upper East Side.

“I am making a $360 million push so that the nation and New York can tap these funds and help fortify more places of worship,” Schumer said.
