Trump Signs Bill Aimed at Assisting ISIS Genocide Victims in Iraq and Syria

President Donald Trump signed a bill into law Tuesday that will help channel U.S. humanitarian and rebuilding assistance to Christians, Yazidis, and other religious and ethnic minorities in Iraq and Syria who were the victims of ISIS genocide.

The measure, which comes after nearly a year and a half of lobbying from various humanitarian groups, ensures that the U.S. aid may come through the federal government or other entities, including faith-based groups.

It also enables the State Department, in collaboration with other federal agencies, to conduct criminal investigations and apprehend individuals identified as alleged ISIS members, and to identify warning signs of genocide and threats of persecution.:snip:
