LAST CALL: Ask Secretary Pompeo to Prioritize Egyptian Human Rights and U.S. Citizens in Bilateral Relationship

As the Chairman and Ranking Member of the Subcommittee on the Middle East and North Africa, we invite you to join us in sending the below letter to Secretary Pompeo. Because Egypt is such an important partner, we are concerned that Egypt’s human rights record,
in addition to a number of issues involving U.S. citizens, is threatening Egypt’s stability and impeding a stronger U.S.-Egypt relationship. We hope that you will join us in urging Secretary Pompeo to make these issues a priority. To join the letter or if
you have any questions, please contact Nathan Gately (Nathan.Gately@mail.house.gov) with Rep. Ros-Lehtinen or Casey Kustin (Casey.Kustin@mail.house.gov) with
Rep. Deutch.
