Support for ICC Independence and Justice

To: Pres. Biden

From: A verified voter in Baltimore, MD

May 6

I am deeply concerned about the ongoing situation involving the International Criminal Court (ICC) and its efforts to investigate alleged war crimes in Gaza. Recent reports indicate that the ICC faces significant pressure and threats, which could hinder its independent and impartial functioning. It is particularly troubling that these pressures are coming, in part, from US officials who have expressed opposition to the ICC’s potential issuance of arrest warrants against Israeli officials for actions in Gaza. The ICC plays a crucial role in upholding international law and ensuring that those responsible for war crimes, crimes against humanity, and genocide are held accountable. Its work is vital to maintaining global justice, and it must be allowed to operate without interference. The United States, as a leader on the global stage, should support the rule of law and the principles of justice consistently and impartially, regardless of political alliances. I urge you to publicly support the ICC’s independence and to advocate against any U.S. actions that would undermine the court’s efforts to conduct thorough and unbiased investigations. Please take a stand for justice and the rule of law by ensuring that the United States respects and supports the ICC’s mandate to investigate and prosecute international crimes. Thank you for considering this critical issue. Your support for the ICC’s ability to function without intimidation or interference will demonstrate a commitment to international justice and to the principles upon which the United States was founded.
