An urgent message from Members of Congress to the students of the University of Illinois about BDS, the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions anti Israel movement. Democrats and Republicans are united against anti-Israel divestment. Divestment asks our University to divest from Israeli companies and companies that do business in Israel. Divesting from these companies would hurt our University in countless ways: we would put students at risk of losing scholarships, internships and jobs, and we would be putting at risk the strong partnerships the University of Illinois has built with the State of Israel. We at IlliniPAC stand strongly against divestment, and so does Congress.
Thank you to Congressman Dan Lipinski, The Honorable Bob Dold, Senator Tammy Duckworth, Congressman Rodney Davis, Congressman Randy Hultgren, and Congressman Peter Roskam for standing against BDS and for participating in this video!
