Long Island, NY - January 16, 2019 - On January 15, Congressman Lee Zeldin (R, NY-1) met with Turkish native and New York Knicks Center Enes Kanter to discuss human rights violations being committed in Turkey as well as other topics.
 
“For too long the Turkish people have experienced violations of basic human rights and the disregard of essential freedoms, such as free speech and religious freedom,” said Congressman Zeldin. “It was heartbreaking to hear Enes’ story and that of so many other Turkish people who are suffering due to oppression, including widespread, wrongful imprisonment. We must do more to reject blatant human rights abuses in Turkey and stand for a truly free Turkish people.”
 
During his visit, Enes Kanter had meetings as well with other Members of Congress from both sides of the aisle in the House and Senate, including Chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee Eliot Engel (D, NY-16) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D, NY).
