38 Congress Members Urge John Kerry to Use 'Every Legal Means' Available to Rescue Meriam Ibrahim
Christian Post ^ | 06/22/2014 | Stoyan Zaimov

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.

I am sorry but how can America expect any country to abide by agreements with us and use the term legal when this Administration lies at the drop of a hat,does not abide by the law and makes empty threats. I am an America and I love my country but I honestly loathe my government and the way they act.

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.

How one man can turn a country into shambles simply because idiot Americans have been brow beaten into believing we owe blacks something. I do not mean this to sound racist but Americans are fools!

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.

How about checking up on Marine Sgt. Andrew Tahmooress.
He’s been sitting in a Mexican stink hole getting beat up for too long

Ironic they urge legal means from a lawless administration.

But let our Marine rot in a Mexican hell hole.
