Doug Lamborn Collects Signatures in Congress for Mosab Yousef

The Daily Caller reports that Colorado Congressman, Doug Lamborn (R), is gathering signatures in the U.S. House of Representatives in support of Mosab Yousef. Lamborn’s office told The Daily Caller that the congressman plans to present the letter to Napolitano sometime this week, before Mosab’s Wednesday hearing.

From The Daily Caller by Caroline May:

So far fifteen other representatives have signed Lamborn’s letter: Rep. Trent Franks, Rep. Cynthia Lummis, Rep. Bill Posey, Rep. Kenny Marchant, Rep. Rob Bishop, Rep. John Kline, Rep. John Shadegg, Rep. Aaron Schock, Rep. Mike Pence, Rep. Frank Wolf, Rep. Joe Pitts, Rep. Michele Bachmann, Rep. Marsha Blackburn, Rep. Bill Shuster, and Rep. Lynn Jenkins. Update: as of 5:30 p.m. EDT 6-29-10, Lamborn had 22 signatures, all Republicans and he released them to DHS.

Below is the text of the letter:

The Honorable Janet Napolitano

Secretary of Homeland Security

Washington, D.C. 20528

Dear Madam Secretary,

We are troubled by what we understand to be the position of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) concerning the immigration status of Mr. Mosab Hassan Yousef.  It is incumbent on DHS to take into account all the evidence.

Mr. Yousef is currently scheduled for a U.S. Department of Justice Executive Office for Immigration Review hearing on June 30, 2010, which is expected to determine his request for asylum in the United States.  To the extent that DHS officials or attorneys will be involved in this hearing or future hearings, we ask that full consideration be given to Mr. Yousef’s views and conduct in recent years, particularly his cooperation with Shin Bet at significant risk to his own safety and life.

We understand that Mr. Yousef’s Shin Bet handler will attest to Mr. Yousef’s courageous work to prevent acts of terror, as well as attest that Mr. Yousef harbors no loyalty to or affiliation with a foreign terrorist organization.

Additionally, Mr. Yousef’s conversion to Christianity and work with Israeli intelligence services would place Mr. Yousef in grave danger should he be forced to return to the Middle East.  These important conditions must also be taken into consideration as Mr. Yousef’s immigration status is adjudicated.

Sincerely,

Doug Lamborn

    I just saw an interview of Mosab Yousef with Joel Rosenburg and the Epicenter Conference in Pennsylvania. It was amazing to hear his testimony. With his backround and the fact that he has been so open….he would not live long in the West Bank. Nothing was mentioned about this. Thousands of people watched this conference by internet. Shouldn’t someone contact Joel and the Joshua Fund and ask if an e-mail can be sent to everyone to pray? I will pray and call Janet Napolitano’s office. Kathleen
