Two lawmakers affiliated with the Squad are allegedly refusing to talk to their hometown Jewish newspapers -- in Pittsburgh and St. Louis.

Ron Kampeas on X: "Two of the cosponsors, @CoriBush and @RepSummerLee will not speak to their hometown Jewish media, a policy that inhibits making the pitch to their constituents for inherently controversial legislation" / X

Congresswoman Cori Bush on X: "We must do everything we can to save lives. @RepRashida, @RepAndreCarson, @RepSummerLee, @RepDeliaramirez, and I are introducing the #CeasefireNOW Resolution to call for an immediate de-escalation and ceasefire in Israel and Palestine. I urge my colleagues to join us. https://t.co/DlZ2k365zL" / X

Ms. BUSH submitted the following resolution; which was referred to the Committee


Calling for an immediate deescalation and cease-fire in Israel and occupied Palestine.

Whereas all human life is precious, and the targeting of civil-ians, no matter their faith or ethnicity, is a violation of international humanitarian law;

Whereas, between October 7 and October 16, 2023, armed violence has claimed the lives of over 2,700 Palestinians and over 1,400 Israelis, including Americans, and wounded thousands more;

Whereas hundreds of thousands of lives are at imminent risk if a cease-fire is not achieved and humanitarian aid is not delivered without delay; and

Whereas the Federal Government holds immense diplomatic power to save Israeli and Palestinian lives: Now, there-fore, be it

Resolved, That the House of Representatives—

(1) urges the Biden administration to immediately call for and facilitate deescalation and a cease-fire to urgently end the current violence; and

(2) calls upon the Biden administration to promptly send and facilitate the entry of humanitarian assistance into Gaza.
