Rubio, Rosen: ICC’s Overreach is Outrageous

May 20, 2024 | Press Releases

Earlier this month, U.S. Senators Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Jacky Rosen (D-NV) led a bipartisan letter to President Joe Biden urging him to strongly oppose the International Criminal Court’s (ICC) efforts to politically target Israel and respond swiftly and strongly should the ICC move forward with arrest warrants. 

Following reports that the ICC has sought arrest warrants against Israeli leaders, Rubio and Rosen issued a joint statement:

  • “We are outraged by this shameful political move by the ICC, which seeks to undermine Israel as it defends itself after Hamas’s brutal October 7th terrorist attack. We’re deeply concerned about the impacts this decision will have on current hostage negotiations and the dangerous precedent this sets given that the ICC has no jurisdiction over Israel. As we emphasized in our letter to President Biden, ‘the President is granted broad authorities to respond to these types of actions by the ICC.’ We now join together to call on him to take swift and forceful action in response to this attack on our democratic ally.”
