HR 390, Bill for Genocide Relief in Iraq & Syria Goes to Senate

 

The Iraq and Syria Genocide Emergency Relief and Accountability Act (HR 390) has passed the US House of Representatives with bipartisan support and is now in the hands of the US Senate. The bill will provide essential humanitarian relief to religious and ethnic minorities that have experienced unthinkable atrocities as victims of genocide at the hands of the ISIS, and will promote accountability for the perpetrators of these offenses.

IF places its full support behind HR 390 and urges its swift passage by the Senate so it may be presented to President Trump for his signature. The sooner this bill is passed, the sooner vulnerable persons in Iraq and Syria can receive the vital support they so desperately need. The passage of this bill with the support it has already received from both parties will be a strong, unifying message from the American people that we recognize the atrocities that have been committed on these populations by ISIS and will not abandon them during their time of need.

IF President Rend Al Rahim has signed a letter to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell urging his support and full effort in passing this bill in the nearest possibly time frame. The people of Iraq and Syria are counting on us.
