Pro-Israel caucus in US House of Representatives aims for Jerusalem recognition

Allies of Israel in the US House of Representatives submitted a bill Monday that would enable Congress to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel on American documents.

The bill calls for moving the American embassy to Jerusalem. It would also challenge the recent Supreme Court decision that prevented Jerusalem, Israel from being written on the passport of a child born in the city.

The bipartisan resolution was initiated by Congressional Israel Allies Caucus members Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) and Gene Green (D-TX) and co-sponsored by 23 other congressmen.
