WASHINGTON, Jan. 14 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Congressman Fattah (D-PA) releases the following statement on the destruction in the aftermath of the earthquake:

"We stand united with our neighbors in Haiti as they face the devastating loss of their family members, their homes, their schools and their way of life as they knew it.  I am committed to support President Obama as he launches, in his own words, a swift, coordinated and aggressive effort to save lives and assist the recovery in Haiti.  To the people of Haiti, while distance may separate us physically we are connected by the human spirit of resilience. Our prayers go out, as well, to those Haitians and their loved ones who are living in Philadelphia and elsewhere in the United States. It will take time but America is committed to assisting in the financial and emotional recovery of all Haitians impacted by the staggering dimensions of this tragedy."
