18 Jewish groups urge Congress to pass bill to end Trump’s travel ban

Eighteen Jewish organizations called on Congress to pass a bill seeking to end President Donald Trump’s executive order banning citizens of certain predominantly Muslim countries.

On Wednesday, Sen. Chris Coons, D-Del., and Rep. Judy Chu, D-Calif., introduced bills in the Senate and House, respectively, to repeal three versions of the president’s travel ban. The current version places entry restrictions on citizens of Iran, Libya, North Korea, Syria, Venezuela, Somalia and Yemen.

HIAS, an immigrant advocacy and aid group formerly known as the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society, organized the letter sent Wednesday to members of Congress.

“We stand in solidarity with our Muslim neighbors, and in support of refugees and asylum seekers from around the world,” the letter reads. “As American Jews, we are proud of our country’s legacy as a place that welcomes people who are forced to flee their homelands in search of safety.”

Among the signatories are official groups representing the Reform, Conservative and Reconstructionist Jewish denominations as well as the Orthodox social justice organization Uri L’Tzedek. American Jewish World Service, the Anti-Defamation League, J Street and the National Council of Jewish Women also signed.

Last year, the Supreme Court upheld Trump’s executive order mandating a ban on travel from several Muslim majority countries, a decision criticized by major Jewish organizations. Trump had issued similar bans twice before but they were blocked by lower courts.

She's pro Palestine and that itself alone is enough to label her "antisemite" in the eyes of the Jews.
@Karim

Which Palestinian group does she support? Hamas or the Palestinian Authority? One wants to negotiate for a two state solution and the other’s main goal is to destroy Israel?

Just like any other Muslim, she supports a Palestinian state independent from the constant wrath of the cursed Jews. That's all.

Hamas is an organization created by the Israeli Intelligence agency Mossad.

@Karim

But the Palestinians have a congresswoman, her name is Rashida Tlaib, why can't Ilhaan concentrate in helping the cursed land of Somalia whom are in a poorer and worse condition than the Palestinians? Gaza City Council has eight times more than the budget of the State of Puntland per year, why is she obsessed with them?
