ACTION ALERT Urge Your Senators to Support Muslim Brotherhood Bill

iraqi-forces-and-iran-backed-shiite-militia-members-AFP-640x480Last week, we sent out an email asking you to contact your Senators and Representatives in support of S.2230 and H.R. 3892, Senate and House bills stating that Congress believes the Muslim Brotherhood meets the criteria of a Foreign Terrorist Organization under section 219 of the Immigration and Nationality Act (8 U.S.C. 1189).

H.R. 3892, the Muslim Brotherhood Terrorist Designation Act, has been introduced by Representative Mario Diaz-Balart (R-FL). S.2230, the companion bill under the same name, has been introduced by Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX).  At this time, the Senate bill has only two cosponsors, Senators Orrin Hatch (R-UT), and Ron Johnson (R-WI).

If you have already contacted your elected officials in support of these bills, thank you.  Due to the efforts of our members, H. R. 3892 now has bipartisan support in the House, with Representative Colin C. Peterson (D-MN) signing on as a cosponsor.

The legislation lists U.S. groups that include the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) and the North American Islamic Trust (NAIT) as groups under the control of the Muslim Brotherhood.

Again, the Senate bill only has two current cosponsors.  Below, please see the list of Senators on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee (the Committee with jurisdiction over the legislation) who have yet to take a position on S. 2230.

If your Senator is on the list below, we urge you to contact him/her to ask for support in the form of co-sponsorship of S.2230! (Note: “supporting” a bill is not enough.  We need these Senators to cosponsor the bill!)

  • Barbara Boxer (D-CA)
  • John Barrasso (R-WY)
  • Ben Cardin (D-MD); Ranking Member
  • Christopher Coons (D-DE)
  • Bob Corker (R-TN); Chairman
  • Jeff Flake (R-AZ)
  • Cory Gardner (R-CO)
  • Johnny Isakson (R-GA)
  • Tim Kaine (D-VA)
  • Edward Markey (D-WA)
  • Bob Menendez (D-NJ)
  • Chris Murphy (D-CT)
  • Rand Paul (R-KY)
  • David Perdue (R-GA)
  • James Risch (R-ID)
  • Marco Rubio (R-FL)
  • Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH)
  • Tom Udall (D-NM)

Send an email or make a phone call to your U.S. Senator in support of this bill.
