Langworthy Bill Would Help Bring Americans Home From IsraelSun, October 22, 2023 by Lucas Day SHARE NOW Darren McGee/ Office of Governor Kathy Hochul) A bill that would use funding to evacuate American citizens from Israel safely has been introduced in Washington by Congressman Nick Langworthy. The Republican, who represents Schuyler and Steuben counties in the House, says the Safe Way Home Act would transfer funds from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Shelter and Services Program to fund a crisis evacuation program within the State Department to evacuate American citizens from conflict areas where their lives are at risk, including Israel and future emergencies. Langworthy says the bill will redirect resources from illegal immigrants to bring our own citizens home from conflict areas. “In the wake of the barbaric terrorist attacks in Israel, the United States must do everything we can to ensure the safety and well-being of our citizens in the region,” said Rep. Langworthy. “While the Biden Administration continues to spend millions to house illegal immigrants, they’ve left Americans in Israel to fend for themselves, only offering a loan for tickets on foreign airlines. The Safe Way Home Act will redirect resources from illegal immigrants to bring our own citizens home from conflict areas.” Rep. Langworthy is joined by original cosponsors: Reps. Byron Donalds (FL-19), Elise Stefanik (NY-21), Claudia Tenney (NY-24), Nicole Malliotakis (NY-11), Randy Weber (TX-14), Greg Steube (FL-17), Kat Cammack (FL-03), Doug Lamborn (CO-05), and Troy Balderson (OH-12).
