Bipartisan bill will bolster U.S. leadership in preventing future genocides and atrocities

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senators Ben Cardin (D-Md.) and Todd Young (R-Ind.), both members of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, Congresswoman Ann Wagner (R-MO-2), a member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, and Congressman Joe Crowley (D-NY-14), Chairman of the Democratic Caucus, lauded final passage Wednesday of bipartisan legislation that will strengthen America’s global leadership in preventing mitigating and responding to genocides and human rights atrocities wherever they may occur. The bill is expected to be signed into law by President Trump.

That is one of the reasons why I find it ironic. The main other one would be the White genocide going on.
