Press Release

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Michael McCaul (R-TX), Chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee and a senior member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, applauds the House passage of the Taylor Force Act.

Congressman McCaul: “Those who support terrorists should not be able to receive assistance from the United States. The Taylor Force Act passed today restricts U.S. assistance to the Palestinian Authority until they cease payments to terrorists who carry out attacks on innocent Israelis and Americans. This bill is a critical step in ensuring the kind of atrocity that took place on March 8th of last year, which left former U.S. Army officer and Vanderbilt student Taylor Force dead, is not repeated.

“I had the honor to share the stage with Mr. Force, the father of Taylor Force, a few months ago, and I hope no family ever has to endure a tragedy like he and his family have. While this legislation cannot bring his son back, it can help ensure these tragedies never happen again.”
