Letter: Whom does Delgado work for?

“Last summer, representative Antonio Delgado was asked in an open letter to support HR 2407, the No Way to Treat a Child Act, which made our $3.8 billion in foreign aid to Israel contingent on their ending their flagrant military detention and abuse of children. Delgado’s response to the over 2,000 signatories was no response; he refused to meet with a coalition of local groups like Jewish Voice for Peace, Women in Black, MECR and Veterans for Peace. The groups were forced to send him a video appeal, which he too ignored,” writes Lisa Mullenneaux of West Hurley.
