92 US lawmakers urge Biden administration to address domestic antisemitism

Ninety-two US lawmakers from both parties have penned a letter to Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas urging additional and urgent action to combat antisemitism and prosecute antisemitic hate crimes.

“The lawmakers reiterate their concern about the antisemitic threats the American Jewish community has faced across the country in recent years — from Pittsburgh to Poway, from Monsey to Jersey City, and from Lakewood to Colleyville,” reads a statement on the letter issued by Rep. Brad Schneider’s office.

They ask Secretary Mayorkas to advocate for a comprehensive, whole-of-government strategy, led by the Department of Homeland Security, to specifically address the growing problem of domestic antisemitism.

“Only by working together, across all branches and levels of government, across our country and throughout our society, can we address the many facets of antisemitism and ensure the safety and security of the American Jewish community,” the letter reads.
