house Bill H.R. 2037

Should Individuals Involved in Jamal Khashoggi’s Murder Be Denied Permission to Enter or Remain in the U.S.?

Argument in favor

The truth about Jamal Khashoggi’s killing in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul still hasn’t been revealed to either Congress or the public, both of whom have a right to know what actually happened. This bill ensures that the truth will come out. Preventing such individuals from entering, or staying in, the U.S. would send a strong signal condemning Khashoggi’s killing.

Absolutely! And let’s look into the role Kushner and 45 had in this murder. Accessories after the fact? Before the fact?

Saudi Arabia is not an ally of the US any more than Iran is. We need to give a strong signal that we will not tolerate murders of US residents, especially ones ordered by the Saudi royalty. As part of this, we should sanction Saudi Arabia and ban any Saudi officials from entering or staying in the US.

America used to have ideals and those ideals have driven our reactions to world leaders and their countries. In the past our president, focused on the veracity of our guiding principles, would lead the way in taking some demonstrable action to show our disregard of others who would harm us or our residents. If the current administration won’t, thankfully Congress can lead the way. It is not about winning this or that “deal” (Saudi arms purchases), it is about honoring our values, our stated world commitments, acting honorably as a country, and preserving our future. Being honorable is often not expedient but is required if we ever hope to regain the respect of world leaders.

Argument opposed

Publicizing the circumstances of Kashoggi’s killing will anger Saudi Arabia, which is one of America’s most important allies in the Middle East. The U.S. can’t afford to lose or undermine this important alliance. Additionally, a number of Saudi nationals have already been determined to have been involved in Khashoggi’s killing and punished appropriately.

Nah, let us prosecute on behalf of kashoggi. Justice lives in the U.S. bring them here, keep them here. Arrest, prosecute and deliver just rule upon those who have trespassed against their fellow man. Who knows what machinations will be enacted on their behalf if our courts do not control their fate? Let them not escape justice!

America cannot presume to force Our Justice on another country, or events that occur there. We must enforce Our own laws, beginning with immigration. We have serious work to do.

If your lobby money didn’t buy you such nice cars, you’d stop selling weapons and let them abuse their own people rather than Yemeni babies with USA weapons.

    The Trump administration deports brown people for a parking fine. The brutal capture, torture, murder, and dismemberment of a journalist should certainly be enough to deny admission.

    I'm pretty disgusted this is even a question. He may not have been a citizen, but he was a legal resident and as a human being, he deserves more justice than he is likely to get.

    Yes. And if they discover that Jared Kushner was in any way involved, his security clearances must be summarily revoked. In fact, even while he is suspected of involvement, his security clearances should be withheld to prevent his using them to do further harm or to give aid to possible co-conspirators.

    Do we NEED more MURDERERS in this country??? Insane, we can continue to punish men, women, children, babies when they’re just trying to make a better life for themselves but it’s perfectly fine to be friends and confidantes with people who can kill, behead and dismember someone (probably more) who disagreed with them!!!! This country priorities are totally screwed up!!!

    Let’s see. The question here seems to be: should we hold murderers accountable for their crimes? I’m getting a sense that people who occupy a space in reality would say yes. If you’re a member of the Trump family, however, then it’s all about what they are getting in return, because the entire universe should revolve around them. To my representatives in Congress, I urge you to do whatever you can, take any vote, that would counter the interests of the Saudi regime. Stop them, ban them from our country, freeze their assets. Do whatever it takes to make them accountable for what they did to that man Kashoggi.

    Of course they should not be allowed to enter or do business in the U.S. We should not sink to their level they should rise up to ours. There are things more important than money.

    Saudi Arabia and MbS should be punished for Khashoggi murder. What a heinous crime. What a disgusting, despicable act.

    This should not even be a question! Trump wants to deport hard-working taxpaying immigrants, so why would anyone allow real KILLERS into this country??

    Why would we consider allowing known murders enter the U.S.? They should all be locked up and if they are not should certainly be kept out of our country. First on that list should be MBS. In addition 45 and his family should be banned from having contact with MBS and his murderers. Hold them accountable!!

    This administration worries about immigrants trying to seek asylum from violent countries, yet doesn’t seem to care about murderers from oppressive countries. The reason boils down to money, not morals. Human dignity and justice should be championed as basic human rights. Our country used to stand for these things and should again.
