Thirty-eight members of the U.S. Congress wrote an open letter on Thursday to Secretary of State John Kerry, asking him to use "every legal means" necessary to rescue Christian mother Meriam Ibrahim and her two young children currently being held inside a Sudanese prison.
"We request that the U.S. State Department, in partnership with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, review granting Mrs. Ibrahim Significant Public Benefit Parole, asylum, or refugee status, as appropriate. In short, we urge that every legal means necessary be exhausted to ensure that she and her young children are provided safe haven," reads the letter, led by Congressman Trent Franks, R-Arizona, and Congressman Frank Wolf, R-Virginia.
The letter also asks that her two children, Martin and Maya, be granted U.S. citizenship, because their father, Daniel Wani, is a U.S. citizen.
The Sudanese mother was sentenced earlier this year to 100 lashes and death for what Sudan's Public Order Criminal Code deems adultery and apostasy, simply for marrying a Christian man and identifying as a Christian even though her estranged father is Muslim.
The Christian mother has refused to recant her faith even though she was told it could save her from the death penalty.

Wow, another prisoner swap on the way! The Obama Way!
More important than respect is the fact that there's not a filthy cesspool of a country on earth that fears the United States today.And that's exactly what Osama Obama & Pals want.
Thirty-eight Members...WOW! What are the remaining 397 Members doing, watching World Cup? Oh I know, they must be out picketing the Mexican ambassador for the release of Andrew Tahmooressi.
I can’t believe it’s only 38 HOR members. And where is the Black Caucus? They’re showing their moral bankruptcy on this issue, and on the issue of the 300 Nigerian girls we don’t hear anything about any more.
What about US Marine Andrew Tahmooressi??? WHY isn’t hussein rescuing him? I know why, A) he’s not gay, B) he’s not a terrorist, C) he’s not a member of the religion of peace.
Every available legal means, starting with a really stern hashtag.
They couldn’t get more than 38 people to sign it? What does that say about DC?
How about checking up on Marine Sgt. Andrew Tahmooress.
He’s been sitting in a Mexican stink hole getting beat up for too long
Stole my thunder.
Ironic they urge legal means from a lawless administration.
But let our Marine rot in a Mexican hell hole.
