Senate Foreign Relations Committee Ranking Member Jim Risch is currently weaponizing legislative prerogatives in the Senate to indefinitely delay $75 million in urgently needed aid to Palestinians in Gaza and the West Bank.
We the undersigned urge you to override this bad-faith attempt to block Palestinian aid and immediately release this humanitarian assistance. We recall that President Obama was forced to take the same action following similar harmful stunts by lawmakers in April 2012.
This aid was passed and signed into law on a bipartisan basis under the previous administration. In the wake of the most recent escalation between Israel and Hamas -- with medical facilities destroyed and thousands of Gaza residents still homeless -- this assistance will contribute to immediate and urgently needed relief on the ground.
