On April 9, 2019, Senator Robert Menendez catered to nationalist elements in the Armenian American community by introducing Senate Resolution 150, which legislates a criminal conviction of the high crime of genocide against Turkey and people of Turkish heritage for events that occurred more than a hundred years ago, 6000 miles away in a now-extinct empire.
S.Res.150 is the first step in a massive class action for reparations for ancient claims and restitutions of lands, against not only Turkey but private citizens and business.
Currently, S.Res.150 has 22 co-sponsoring Senators, most from states where an aggressive Armenian lobby exerts its orthodox view of history and anti-Turkish sentiments. While emotions run high, some Senators are opportunistically manipulating the circumstances to introduce S.Res.150 for a floor vote.
This letter campaign will automatically send one of two prepared letters, based on whether your Senator is or is not a co-sponsor of S.Res.150.
Please oppose this hateful resolution immediately. Thank you.
