Rep. Carbajal Joins New Resolution Calling for Increased Humanitarian Aid to Gaza, Renewal of Humanitarian Pauses in Fighting to Facilitate Relief and Release of Remaining Hostages

Carbajal co-sponsors resolution led by Reps. Ami Bera and Andy Kim calling on Biden Administration to help facilitate the safe, timely, and sufficient delivery of humanitarian aid to civilians in the Gaza Strip

Congressman Salud Carbajal joined a resolution in the U.S. House of Representatives that calls on the Biden Administration to help scale up efforts to deliver life-saving aid to Palestinian civilians in Gaza and seek the renewal of the humanitarian ceasefires that had previously helped facilitate safe delivery of that aid and secure the release of the remaining hostages.

House Resolution 935, led by Reps. Ami Bera (CA-06) and Andy Kim (NJ-03), also reemphasizes the need for Congress to pass the supplemental funding request for humanitarian aid made by President Joe Biden in October 2023, funding that Congressman Carbajal has continued to push for over the past few months.

“Hamas’ horrific terrorist attacks and continued holding of innocent hostages must be addressed, but we cannot lose sight of the Palestinian civilians that have been used as human shields and who now face a growing humanitarian crisis that is deepening the terrible toll of the conflict in Gaza,” said Rep. Carbajal. “As we saw from the last ceasefire, a pause in fighting can facilitate both the safe release of those still being held hostage and the increased delivery of life-saving medicine, food, and other necessities. It is critical for the Biden Administration to continue pushing for this aid to reach those in need, and for us in Congress to pass their request for additional support to save lives and ensure there is a pathway to restoring a durable peace in the region.”

The resolution backed by Rep. Carbajal specifically calls for the Biden Administration to help facilitate:

  • The scale up of safe and continuous flow of aid convoys to reach civilians with life-saving assistance in Gaza;
  • The ability for humanitarian organizations to deliver aid in Gaza without impediment or interference;
  • The distribution of fuel to humanitarian organizations working in Gaza;
  • Proper oversight to ensure aid is appropriately delivered; and
  • The renewal of a humanitarian pause to facilitate a surge in humanitarian aid and the release of additional hostages


Rep. Carbajal joins more than a dozen House Democrats as co-sponsors of H. Res. 935, including five other Members of Congress from California.

Recently, Congressman Salud Carbajal and a group of twelve other House Democrats sitting on committees with oversight on international affairs voiced concerns to President Joe Biden over Israel’s current military operations and the need for a strategic approach that supports both the freeing of hostages and a political resolution that protects civilian life.

Congressman Carbajal also joined an effort signed by 92 members of the U.S. House of Representatives reiterating the need for humanitarian aid to protect the lives of Palestinians, Americans, and Israelis, “whose security will be weakened if we fail to meet the humanitarian needs in the region.”

In the aftermath of the October 7 Hamas terrorist attacks against Israel, Rep. Carbajal voted to formally condemn Hamas’ October 7 terrorist attacks, call for swift support for both Israel's security needs and humanitarian relief to help innocent civilians in Gaza, and to cut off funding sources for terrorist organizations in the region.
