U.S. Congressman Max Miller Introduces Resolution Condemning Biden Decision to Pause Certain Arms Transfers to Israel

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, U.S. Congressman Max Miller (OH-07) introduced a resolution before the House of Representatives to condemn the Biden Administration’s decision to pause certain arms transfers to Israel.

“I am proud to stand strong with our most important and only democratic ally in the Middle East in its time of need,” said Congressman Miller. “The President’s decision to unilaterally order a pause on certain defense articles ready for imminent delivery to Israel without consulting Congress is a danger to Israel, the hostages still held by Hamas – including Americans, and a gift to a dastardly terrorist organization and its sympathizers. Any daylight between the U.S. and Israel on military matters only risks the lives of the hostages, further emboldens Hamas and Iran-backed forces in the region by weakening Israel’s negotiating hand at a pivotal moment and weakens Israel’s efforts to protect its sovereignty and citizens. It’s completely wrong and I am proud that Chairman McCaul has joined as an original sponsor of this legislation.”

On April 20, 2024, the House of Representatives passed H.R. 8034, which provided $26.38 Billion in emergency supplemental aid to Israel to defend itself against Hamas.  The Senate passed the measure on April 23,2024.  President Biden signed the legislation into law on April 24, 2024.

Chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee Michael McCaul (TX-10) is an original sponsor of this resolution. 

Text of the Resolution is available here.
