Carlos Gimenez Champions the Prohibiting Assistance to the Taliban Act

Share this story:

A member of the Florida congressional delegation on Capitol Hill announced this week he will introduce a bill to “ban American taxpayer dollars from being used for foreign aid or economic assistance to the Taliban in Afghanistan.”

On Friday, U.S. Rep. Carlos Gimenez, R-Fla., said he plans to introduce the “Prohibiting Assistance to the Taliban Act” and intends to file the bill on Friday when the U.S. House is in pro-forma session.

“It is outrageous that the Biden administration wants to mortgage our children and grandchildren’s future in order to give your hard-earned money to the Taliban,” Gimenez said on Wednesday.

“President Biden has already foolishly handed them over control of Afghanistan, along with billions of dollars of military equipment. Now they want to take more of your money to reward a terrorist regime intent on curbing the rights of women, promoting religious fundamentalism, and creating a hotbed for global terrorism. I will fight like hell to protect our taxpayers from these terrorists.”

“The legislation comes a day after President Joe Biden’s National Security Advisor admitted on ABC News that the Biden administration is considering giving aid to the Taliban,” the congressman’s office noted.

First elected to Congress last year when he defeated then U.S. Rep. Debbie Mucarsel-Powell, D-Fla., Gimenez sits on the U.S. House Homeland Security Committee.
