Congresswoman Ashley Hinson (R-IA-02) released the following statement after voting for the Israel Security Supplemental Appropriations Act. This legislation provides military assistance to Israel, replenishes U.S. stockpiles to preserve our military readiness, ensures the safe return of American citizens impacted by the terrorist attacks, and is fully offset by re-allocating unused IRS funding. Hinson is an original co-sponsor of this legislation.

“Hamas’s terrorist attacks on Israel are horrific – over 1,000 Israelis were slaughtered, 30 Americans were murdered, and more are still being held hostage. Today’s package reallocates unused IRS funds to support Israel’s Iron Dome and Iron Beam defense systems, as well as funds the advanced weapons and technology necessary for Israel to not only defend itself from the current terrorist siege, but to eradicate Hamas for good. These evil terrorists deserve no mercy and must be brought to their knees. Importantly, this bill also provides funding to replenish our military stockpiles and protect U.S. military readiness. In addition to military support, it is vital the Biden Administration bring every American held hostage by Hamas home immediately and return to maximum pressure sanctions against Iran. I will continue to stand with Israel.”  – Congresswoman Ashley Hinson
