Cicilline Statement on Violence Outside Wyatt

PAWTUCKET – U.S. Congressman David N. Cicilline (RI-01) issued the following statement today:


“The right of a free people to peacefully protest their government is fundamental to our democracy. I am deeply disturbed by reports that several protesters were struck last night by a vehicle driven by an employee of the Wyatt Detention Facility.”


“It’s critical that a thorough, independent investigation into this incident be conducted, and that Warden Daniel Martin make himself available to discuss this matter further.”
