An Open Letter

To: Pres. Biden, Sen. Cornyn, Rep. Cloud, Sen. Cruz

From: A verified voter in Bastrop, TX

April 30

You are allowing Leahy law to be violated. Yesterday, 4/29, our government found that at least 5 units of Israeli security forces have committed gross human rights violations and the State Department will not bar those unites from receiving U.S. military assistance. The fact sheet and introduction to Leahy vetting policy course are publicly available from the State Department's own website. I've read it along with the Congressional Research Reports that are made for YOU regarding Leahy law, WRSA-I and other pre-positioned materiel, as well as other sources about how our government is supposed to ensure we are not complicit in gross human rights violations. By the State Department's own findings and admission, at least 5 units are not eligible for our military assistance. I strongly disagree with how Leahy vetting policy is allowed to be created and implemented by the same bodies it is meant to be enforced on, but even so, the State Department is violating the Leahy vetting policy they created by their inaction. You are also allowing college students across our country to be brutalized and harassed by "law enforcement" and college administrations for their peaceful demonstrations, protests, and encampments demanding an end to Israel's genocide and their college's complicity in it. You clearly will not uphold national or international law, so you've left it to the people with humanity to. You have failed in every category to uphold our country's obligation from the Genocide Convention and other treaties and agreements of international law to stop this genocide and the continued gross human rights violations Israel continues to barbarically commit. I demand that you:  – Hold Israel accountable for a permanent, immediate ceasefire, their violations of the Genocide Convention, and gross human rights violations by any means necessary – Call for the immediate end of Israel’s occupation and apartheid and support Palestinians in their fight for freedom and peace – Secure the immediate release and safety of all Palestinians who have been abducted and held captive by Israel, including those whose indefinite detention began prior to 10/7 – Permanently end all monetary, diplomatic, and military aid given to Israel and enforce Leahy Law – Reallocate all funds given to Israel and commit additional resources for ongoing humanitarian relief for Palestinians starting with immediately resuming funding of UNRWA – Immediately withdraw all U.S. troops, military assets, and all other assets deployed throughout the Middle East and cease all actions that further escalate a larger regional conflict – Pass legislation that voids all anti-BDS laws at the federal level – Vote no on H.R. 7521 and any similar legislation proposed
