Schumer Calling for Passage of Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act
I'm proud to announce that today we’re one step closer to justice for the victims of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. In their pursuit of justice, 9/11 families were told American law prevented them from pursuing justice against those who funded the attacks. Those court rulings were backward, illogical, and wrong and now the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act (JASTA) has passed with unanimous consent from the Senate. JASTA will help these families seek justice & also serve as a deterrent to other nations who'd assist in terror attacks against Americans. Today is a big step forward, but there is work to be done. I strongly urge the House leadership to put JASTA on the floor for a vote immediately.
