A hand-drawn swastika was reportedly found on Friday in the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) building in Washington.
An email sent at about 5 p.m. to staffers in the building by Principal Deputy Undersecretary for the Office of Intelligence and Analysis Brian Murphy said the Nazi symbol was found on the third floor, according to CNN.
“First, I want to repeat what (Under Secretary for Intelligence and Analysis David Glawe), the Secretary, and many others in the Department have said in the past: there is no room in the workplace for such symbols of hate,” Murphy wrote in the email. “And there is no room in the workplace for those who ascribe to such a thing. I have communicated with USIA Glawe, who is currently in Israel, and he is disgusted by what has happened.”
Murphy added that the department is removing the swastika and asking staffers and cleaning employees if anyone saw any “suspicious” activity, CNN notes.
