Budd, Cotton, Colleagues Help Introduce Bill to Repeal Biden Administration’s Arms Embargo on Israel

Washington, D.C. — Senator Ted Budd (R-NC) has helped introduce the Israel Security Assistance Support Act, which would force the Biden administration to send critical weapons to Israel. The bill’s introduction was led by Senator Tom Cotton (R-AR).

The bill comes after President Biden announced that his administration would withhold certain weapons from Israel.

The Israel Security Assistance Support Act would:

  • Force the Biden administration to complete the delivery of weapons to Israel.
  • Cancel the salaries of any Biden administration official at the Department of Defense or Department of State who take any action to withhold the delivery of weapons to Israel.

The legislation is also co-sponsored by Senators John Barrasso (R-WY), Katie Britt (R-AL), Thom Tillis (R-NC), Kevin Cramer (R-ND), Mike Crapo (R-ID), Steve Daines (R-MT), Joni Ernst (R-IA), Deb Fischer (R-NE), Lindsey Graham (R-SC), Cindy Hyde-Smith (R-MS), John Kennedy (R-LA), James Lankford (R-OK), Cynthia Lummis (R-WY), Roger Marshall (R-KS), Pete Ricketts (R-NE), and Rick Scott (R-FL).

Senator Budd said in a statement:

“President Biden’s decision to withhold critical ammunition to Israel is a total betrayal of our friend and ally. Israel is in a fight for survival against genocidal Hamas terrorists. These same Hamas terrorists currently hold 8 American citizens hostage, including North Carolina native, Keith Siegel. The best way we can bring them home is by increasing military pressure on Hamas. But by withholding lethal aid, President Biden is signaling to Hamas that it’s okay to hold out and continue their campaign of terror. I’m proud to join Senator Cotton and the rest of my colleagues to reverse President Biden’s dangerous decision.”

Senator Cotton said:

“President Biden’s decision to impose a de facto arms embargo on Israel is a betrayal of one of our most important allies as it fights an existential war for survival. This bill will reverse Joe Biden’s arms embargo and withhold the salaries of officials who implement it.”
