H.R. 2407, "Promoting Human Rights by Ending Israeli Military Detention of Palestinian Children Act"
First introduced by Representative Betty McCollum on 11/14/17 as H.R.4391, the bill was re-introduced in improved form in the 116th Congress on 4/30/19 as H.R. 2407. This bill would require that United States funds do not support Israeli military detention, interrogation, abuse, or ill-treatment of Palestinian children and would provide at least $19 million to monitor such abuse and to treat victims. Mistreatment of Palestinian children by the Israeli military has been documented by Human Rights Watch, B'tselem, UNICEF, Defense for Children International and others.
In Delaware, please call Representative Lisa Blunt Rochester at 202-225-4165 and ask her to co-sponsor H.R. 2407.

Did you know an anti-BDS bill was introduced in New Castle County in 2015? DelPHR members and supporters helped STOP the anti-boycott ordinance introduced in New Castle County on September 29, 2015 (Ordinance 15-093). The ordinance was withdrawn by its sponsor, Councilman Weiner, in January 2016 and so did not face a vote at the County Council. See this announcement to supporters in November 2015 after the New Castle County Pension Board voted not to recommend the ordinance.
DelPHR is a member of the US Campaign for Palestinian Rights.
