Defund the United Nations Relief and Works Agency

A coalition of conservative leaders and organizations led by Advancing American Freedom, and including ConservativeHQ.com, has issued an open letter to Congress demanding that

funding for the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) be stricken from the federal budget.

 

The letter addressed to Speaker Johnson, Leader McConnell, Leader Jeffries and Leader Schumer says:

 

It is a moral imperative that the United States Congress affirmatively defund the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNWRA) and prohibit the Biden Administration from directly or indirectly providing any taxpayer funding or support to the openly antisemitic and now apparently terrorist organization.


The United States can no longer fund UNRWA with a clean conscience. For years, the American people were told a litany of lies aimed at creating a false understanding of UNRWA as simply a humanitarian organization that needed the hard-earned tax dollars of the American people to provide services for millions of Palestinians misleadingly characterized as “refugees.”


For years, many of us knew these claims were lies.


With the recent allegations of UNRWA employees actively participating in the October 7th attack and thousands of UNRWA employees celebrating the attack confirms the lie. 12 Congress can no longer pretend that UNRWA is simply a humanitarian organization.

UNRWA funding is the red line.


Not one cent of American taxpayer money should ever again be used to directly or indirectly support UNRWA. Congress must defund UNRWA in the next appropriations vehicle that becomes law.


The Capitol Switchboard is (202-224-3121), call today and tell your Senators and Representative that you demand funding for the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNWRA) be stripped from the federal budget.
