San Francisco Against Child Detentions
To: Representative Nancy Pelosi, Speaker of the House
Support for H.R. 2407 - Promoting Human Rights for Palestinian Children
Living Under Israeli Military Occupation Act.
As your constituent, I ask you to publicly support H.R. 2407, which protects the basic human rights of Palestinian children. The passage of this bill will prohibit U.S. military aid from being used by foreign armed forces to support the military detention, interrogation, abuse, torture, or ill-treatment of children, which is in violation of international humanitarian law.
Last year, at the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, you condemned child detention at our own border stating that it was “barbaric” and that it “challenged the conscience of our country”. As the largest financial and military supporter of Israel, the United States is complicit in how Palestinian children are treated.
As a sanctuary city, San Francisco has fought hard to uplift the rights of children, both in our community and at our border. I believe that all children are entitled to special protections and all due process rights under international law. The children of Palestine are no less worthy of our attention and concern. Today, I am asking you to take a stand to defend all children of the world. The voters of San Francisco urge you to support H.R. 2407.
