Trump Signs Anti-Genocide Act, Anti-Semitism Resolution Into Law

(JNS) U.S. President Donald Trump this week signed new bipartisan legislation committing the United States to preventing genocide, named in honor of Holocaust survivor and Nobel Prize laureate Elie Wiesel.

The Elie Wiesel Genocide and Atrocities Prevention Act makes the prevention of genocide and other crimes a matter of national security, and aims to improve and increase the U.S. response to potential and emerging genocides.

It establishes a Mass Atrocities Task Force to provide training to U.S. Foreign Service officers on detecting early signs of atrocities and will mandate the director of national intelligence to report on atrocities in an annual crime report to Congress.

Trump also signed into law House Resolution 672, the Combating European Anti-Semitism Act of 2017, which expresses the sense of the Congress that it is in America’s national interest to confront anti-Semitism at home and abroad.
