A Closer Look at the Black-Jewish Congressional Caucus
"January and February have been full of commemorative moments for both the black and Jewish Communities. The birthday of Martin Luther King Junior the death anniversary of Anne Frank International Holocaust remembrance and Black History Month we sat down individually with three founders of the Black Jewish congressional caucus democratic congresswoman Brenda Lawrence Democratic congresswoman. Debbie Wasserman Schultz and Republican Congressman Lee Zeldin to discuss why the caucus exists the issues. They think it will address and why it's important for black and Jewish leaders to work together. Not Apart I I asked about the original purpose of the Black Jewish congressional caucus how that purpose has evolved since its conception and what the main issues the caucus to address we. I posed the question to chief. Founder Representative Brenda Lawrence when I went to my colleagues. And ask them if they would be interested in forming a black Jewish Caucus. Civically this administration. I have seen an uptick in divisiveness and Rachel tension and also hate crimes been reported as validated being on Increasing and we have such a strong and long history of lack American and the Jewish community coming together in those times when our country lost its way the Jewish community came to the support of the black community during the civil rights movement. We have shared experience between the Holocaust. Slavery of being people oppressed by no other reason except for who we are and We know and we feel uniquely the stereotypes in the tension that are often placed on us as black and Jewish citizens of this country. And we are here in Congress to write laws and policies to ensure quality to make sure that we're forcing the civil rights of this country and we should be having a unique conversation around this and I can tell you I was so impressed with the support and willingness in a bipartisan way to form the caucus so what are the main issues that the caucus hopes to address. Well I want to know that as we look at hate crimes and discrimination as anti Semitic. It's racist xenophobic Often go back to Martin Luther King. Our unity is born of our common struggle for centuries not only to rid ourselves bandage but to make oppression of any people by others impossible so when we plan or what. Our jackets is our is that we will make sure that we are uniquely informed. We are aware of these incidents and policies and situations where we see Racism not being addressed properly or being able or being nurtured and that we can pass policies and enforce loss through our justice system to ensure we're holding true to one nation under God indivisible with liberty and justice for all next. We asked Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz during the civil rights movement jewish-americans lent critical support to the N. Double ACP and fought alongside. Dr Martin Luther King Junior to challenge racial segregation in public accommodations and black leaders have stood with the Jewish community following the tragic shootings. At synagogues in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania and POW California Joakim Prinz german-american Rabbi and refugee of Nazi. Germany represented the Jewish community as an organizer during the nineteen sixty three march on Washington. So that history is long and and significant and so the the The Black Jewish caucus is really important for us to be able to to retie those binds. And make sure that we can work on the modern day issues that are of mutual concern to both communities are purposes to assemble leaders to learn from one. Another advocate for joint concerns Regardless of party we believe And we exist because all partners are committed calling out hate and racism and discrimination anti-semitism and xenophobia whenever and wherever it rears its ugly head and you know our alliance in the Black Jewish caucus is really important so that we can work to honor and strengthen and safeguard the bond of our communities that have been developed in the struggle for equality in America. Then we asked representative Lee Zeldin. There is a need to better bridge the gap between the Jewish community and the black community and understanding a long rich history of the the black community fighting for on behalf of with the Jewish Committee and community and vice versa This isn't a new concept for us to be working closely and back in World War. Two was seven sixty first tank battalion. Bed Liberated gun skirt skin and God almost four hundred medals for their heroics their efforts and it was Jewish members who stood side by side with the black community during the civil rights push and some actually ended up giving up their lives in that fight for Justice and equality fast forward to two thousand and nineteen. This was announced in June But we were talking to each other about it for a few months leading up to that. Brenda Lawrence Really did a fantastic job taking a lead initiative. The American Jewish Committee was also influential and helpful with that. 'cause how has it evolved since then? I would say that more and more people have expressed interest in being part of it so it's become a bigger and it's allowed us to build a stronger network and we've seen a divide close But the challenges still exist and we just had a Hanukkah in two thousand nineteen that was marked by violent antisemitic attacks in and around the New York City area and some of the people who were paying attention to it saw that the individuals who are carrying out the attacks weren't neo Nazis. They weren't they weren't white supremacists. They weren't a radical Islamic extremists. And they they weren't Politically motivated it was a different dynamic than what you might have been talking about in June of two thousand nineteen You had some people who are talking about the the black Israel The Hebrew Israelite Movement But then others within that movement rejecting the acts carried out up in Munsey attacking the rabbi's home as well as attacking The the Jewish Kosher Supermarket in New Jersey. So in a way if you ask me how it evolved part of. It's been positive With all of the outreach in all of the new relationships and part of it has been an added challenge added friction as we witnessed what happened in the Hanukkah two thousand nineteen and struggling with figuring out how to as quickly as possible Deal with that next. We asked how the black community can support Jewish concerns and how the Jewish community can more forcefully advocate for African American issues. Here's what Linda Lawrence had to say. Yes the Jewish community has in the past as as you know during the civil rights movement Jewish communities one of our strongest legal and justice advocate on the judicial system but it is lifting the voice of Black America Black Lives Matter Institutional that is. Our biggest challenge institutional racism when it comes to the education when it comes to housing when it comes to the criminal justice lending voice to the black community and pointing out those things that are wrong and the black community. What we can do is make sure that we are calling out the stereotypes against the Jewish community. Then we heard from Debbie Wasserman Schultz. There is really some significant overlap that particularly with the violence and the Anti Semitism and bigotry. That is being hurled at our communities not just with these horrendous murders but with social media attacks and you know protest against our communities and discriminatory actions so we have a lot on our plate. Initially that I think are in my view important for our communities mutually and you know because the Caucasus really in its infancy as we mature and move down the road. Get to know one another issues that you know. We can be across the aisle and across our communities and the caucus focused on trying to prioritize the issues that the individual communities find important and lastly representative Lee Zeldin. Well we always spent a lot of times so far I talking about the way. The Jewish community has been targeted with not just Anti Semitic thoughts but antisemitic actions and violent and some cases of its cost people their lives. So you know the the ways for the the black community to identify what? The top issues are Right now for the Jewish community. We're seeing it. Play out really in the national news and the national debate for the Black Community The there still is racism in our country in many respects and I think that teaching tolerance and and understanding ensuring that policies aren't discriminatory that individuals have the ability to achieve the American dream and shouldn't be held back just because they might be someone of color or they might be practicing a different religion like Judaism. That discrimination racism still exists in our country. We saw it play out not too long ago on. Long Island where I'm from the first. Congressional district of New York is on the east end of Long Island There was a story that was in. Newsday was an investigative report of members of the real estate industry discriminating against people of color who were trying to find housing trying to Purchase a home to achieve the American dream. And unfortunately that's an exception and not the norm. It's rare But the response has been robust with investigations. That have been lost. launched as well as the real estate industry themselves Self policing Each Other To educate but educate each other and to push out of their industry people who are discriminating against Black individuals who are trying to own a home and then she the American dream so I would say as far as identifying some of the biggest needs right now of the black community. I would say that just like it was easy to identify anti-semitism as a top needed needs to get addressed for the Jewish community. I would say. Racism is something that's very prevalent and still needs to be addressed absolutely with regards to the black community next. We asked what issues of mutual concern? The caucus can address. Here's what Brenda Lawrence had to say. I think it's extremely important. That the black and Jewish community allow the history of oppression for either of our people to be forgotten. You know there's some people who like to say the Holocaust didn't happen. There are people who say You know black people so each other to slavery. So what's the big deal? We cannot allow the history that as horrific as it is to be forgotten. And that's something else that I think that we uniquely can do as citizens of this country and as survivor and Debbie Wasserman Schultz. Right now we have a really significant challenge around white supremacy and the rise of white supremacists in United States white supremacist increasingly targeted and killed large groups of people in recent years because of their race or religion in the United States in Twenty fifteen we had nine African Americans who were murdered murdered by a gunman whose name I won't mention at the Emmanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church Mother Emmanuel in Charleston South Carolina. Because and this is quoting the murderer. He knew that it would be a place to get a small amount of black people in one area. You had Robert Bowers. Last year yelled antisemitic. Slurs before he opened fire and killed eleven worshippers at the tree of life synagogue in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania and that was the deadliest attack on the Jewish community. American history you've had attacks on mosques where insecurity has had to be increased after fifty one people were massacred to mosques in New Zealand. So we have a very current urgent challenge with bigotry. Anti-semitism white supremacists who are engaging in in deadly violence and so that's at the security and houses of fighting. Anti Semitism and bigotry is Is really the top of our current list of issue the very tragic areas of mutual concern for for both communities and and I would also add Particularly because most of these crimes perpetrated with guns the Jewish community in the African American community have have really come together around making sure that we can close all the loopholes that allow people who shouldn't have a gun under federal law here in the US be able to get them Now that issue is unfortunately not bipartisan. I was just getting ready to say. That's gotta be bipartisan. doesn't mean that That the hawks On Black Jewish relations can't take it on

"I just have to say something as a as a sidebar I've interviewed a lot of a powerful women. And it's interesting the most common answer when I ask what's the best piece of advice, you'd give to a younger woman who wants to follow in your footsteps in some way, the most popular answer by far has been choose the right partner, which I find fascinating because they say, you need someone who has your back not just at work, but at home, and he's going to really be a partner in in sharing the responsibilities of at home. Absolutely. I I was gonna ask you another question. Which is you know, you talked about the the breastfeeding rooms, etc. Can you and I I read that they're going to be more lactation stations now that they're planning in in congress to accommodate some of the accommodate the influx of young mothers. Can you talk about what's some other changes? We might see specifically in congress to accommodate a young mothers that those of us who do not work in congress might not think about well. It's been a lot of changes they used to arrest women, if they went into the capital breastfeeding for into any public area, literally passed legislation that in federal parks, and you know, the capital and ports that that women could breastfeed and not be arrested. I mean, these a long way and now we have lactation rooms, and and support for for women who choose to breastfeed, and and many combinations have been put in place. But. Not enough. It used to be that women were fired if they had children, and and and fired if they wanted to express milk at work in other other really really rigid lost at native, very difficult. I read that there's an informal moms caucus that Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz is starting so she can help mentor some of the younger moms are you going to be part of the moms caucus.

And so we have sort of a group of I always try to find a mom so that we have similar interests. And we're on the phone talking to our kids and and trying to figure out how to balance work and family. It's it's good to have support a fringe to in congress, and they can can help you. You know, sometimes I had to bring my daughters to work 'cause I just I'll never forget. I one time had an interview an interview with a major newspaper for an endorsement and daycare it in common. I had to take my daughter to the interview I was Horrified horrified. that there quietly took their took everything out of my pocket book, and then put it back in and that there while I was you know, trying to push for legislation. Did you get the endorsement yes, I did. So maybe she helps maybe you were elected in nineteen ninety two which was called the year of the woman, and it was a record breaking year for the election of female elected officials until the recent election came along and shatter that record. And I'm talking about the mid terms. Of course, what do you think those two election cycles have in common? Well, I must tell you Kelly. Nothing was more exciting than being part of that class and seeing forty eight women walked down the aisle, not to get married, but to be sworn into the United States, Congress and all of us went there with a vision of what we wanted to accomplish to help people. It was very hard to get there to break down those stores, and this time we are going to have one hundred and two women members of congress, which is just an incredible. It's not enough..

Jim Roope, Los Angeles. We are closely watching the recount in the disputed Florida's Senate race correspondent, Linda Kenyon has the story story incumbent democratic Senator Bill Nelson and his challenger Florida. Republican governor Rick Scott are at odds over the recount, he's been using his power is governor to try to undermine the voting process. Process. Senator Nelson talking about Rick Scott who wants to halt the legally required recount. He's thrown around words like voter fraud with no proof and says Nelson. It gets worse. He's tried to get the Florida Department of law enforcement to intimidate local supervisors of election. That's why Senator Nelson says Rick Scott should have nothing to do with this recount. It's become obvious that Mr. Scott cannot oversee the process in a fair and impartial way. And he should remove himself from the recount process. Senate minority leader Charles Schumer says in his words any contestant in an election. Cannot have their thumb on the scale while votes are being counted. President Trump wants Florida halt the recount, and as he tweeted the race should be called in favor of Rick Scott, Senator Schumer is calling both of them out Trump and Scott or attempting to bully the election officials in floor. Out of doing their jobs in an attempt to win this election. It's just plain wrong. It's un-american. President Trump also tweeted about voter fraud in the Florida Senate race without any evidence. Democratic Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz of Florida says the president has a track record on these things. Let's remember that the president said after his own election that there were three million votes in California that we're legally cast without any evidence whatsoever. And so here we go again, it's grossly irresponsible and completely inaccurate absolutely untrue with a deadline looming for the recount wrap up in this close race Senator Schumer says it's clear there's only one reason why governor Scott and President Trump want the recount to stop because they're worried that if every vote is counted Bill Nelson will be reelected shimmer says if every vote is counted Democrats will live with the results.

This is a this is a dark day for America. It absolutely is. And when President Trump speaks we will go back and take that live. In the meantime, I wanna keep taking your calls. Okay. So Melania Trump did just open up the press conference by saying that there is no place for violence in our society. There's no place for sending. I mean, these are former presidents Bill Clinton former president. Barack Obama their families are being targeted by a person or persons and as governor Cuomo pointed out there expecting even more announcements that come out today. Like, I said the word is just come out recently that the bomb squad was at the congressional mailroom outside of DC. And that they're now saying that that was least ABC is reporting that that was Representative Maxine Waters who was the target. But to many of these where's our rhetoric play into this. There's no place for violence been very very very consistent for many many many years. No violence. None. No place for this die disagree with you. Therefore, you must die in a pipe bomb attack. That's not okay. That's not well either on any level. Okay. So President Trump is coming up to the microphone right now. We're going to carry that live. I want to thank you very much blunt. I.

"To safely remove device contained in that package is also some kind of powder an hour before CNN's bomb, scare news broke of Hillary and Bill Clinton's secret service detail intercepting a pipe bomb before it reached their Westchester residents. Hillary was on the road in Florida campaigning. But former President Bill Clinton was home. At the time right after nine AM this morning when this news broke this normally quiet neighborhood was inundated with law enforcement officers and media secret service agents found a similar device addressed a former President Barack Obama in Washington. DC in sunrise, Florida bomb squad members had to use a robot to investigate a suspicious package that was sent to the incorrect address of former attorney general Eric Holder the package was then rerouted to Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz is office who was listed as the center of all of today's suspicious. Devices officials say a package was also sent a democratic congresswoman Maxine Waters on Capitol Hill, we have to do everything we can to bring our country together. The intended recipients of the packages are some of President Trump's most high-profile verbal targets the first lady and the president condemned the political violence, the full weight of our government is being deployed to. Conduct this investigation and bring those responsible for these despicable acts to Justice. Authorities say all of the devices discovered today, we're similar to the one which arrived at the home of liberal donor. George sources house on Monday officials say the white powder in the envelope. Mailed here to CNN's offices as being tested, and that all the devices were simply made, but functional and could have been lethal, Jeff, Nikki, thanks very much. We're going to move out of the search for the person or persons behind these attacks. Jeff pays has more on this multiple law enforcement, sources say one of the bonds consisted of PVC tubing and used a digital clock connected to a small battery as a possible trigger device. Bairo Technic powder was the explosive and in order to keep it lightweight glass. Was used a strap NHL? Investigators think whoever put the device together was trying to keep the weight down. So that it could be put in a mail box without having to appear at a post office for mailing. Ron Hascoet is a former assistant director of the FBI or does it say that they didn't explode. Well. You may say that they were intercepted prior to their ability to exploit may say that they were never capable of exploding. Even though they may have had black powder in them, the six packages all consisting of a large Manila envelope with six American forever flag. Stands will now be analyzed at the FBI laboratory in Quantico Virginia. Investigators will deconstruct them looking to trace the origin of the wiring and the other components to see where and when they may have been purchased and by whom on the package itself, the look for fingerprints and potentially suspects DNA, if the stamps were licked as they're gathering this information all these investigators. How does that information filter up to the top what markings are on the outside or on the inside of a piece of end cap to see who's the manufacturer? Where is that product distributed? Is it unique in some way? Looking at the tape looking at n cuts on the tape. If I tear something off. Off. And a piece of that tape is left at my on the subject at my house. They may be over match ends. And we are outside the Obama residents here in Washington. Investigators have a lot of promising leads to follow up on given the amount of evidence they have but law enforcement sources believe that whoever is behind. This is no amateur. The person knew what they were doing Jeff. Jeff. Thanks very much to a certain extent here appeared. Towns inserted his homeland security advisor to President George W Bush. She's now senior national security analyst for CBS news. They knew what they were doing enough to make a bomb friend, but certainly not in a very sophisticated way. That's right. And what we're hearing from law enforcement is it's a crude device it would have been lethal if opened and detonated, but it's not a standard recipe. And so what we're hearing from law enforcement sources is this is an individual. He didn't go on the internet and just pulled down a standard Al Qaeda recipe, which we've seen before. So he's left his own signature, right? There's something unique about the way this has been put together, which will be very helpful to investigate the notion that it's PVC and not meddle in some potentially. Could get through a metal detector is is a little frightening. That's right. This is somebody who thought about it he listened. That's also the reason you have all the return addresses being Debbie Wasserman Schultz to all these democratic leaders thinking that perhaps it wouldn't be screened because it was familiar. They would have expected something from her arrest happens quickly case like this. Yes. I do. I think there'll be lots of breaks. This is somebody who's who's made plenty of mistakes the wrong address to Eric Holder misspelling, John Brennan's name John Brennan, does it work at CNN. He works at NBC. And so this is somebody who's made plenty of mistakes along the way, all outside packages are identical six six stamps to tears, printed labels. This is somebody who's who's likely left a lot Saad, but still scary. Fran townsend. Thank you very much. The attempted attacks. Come as the president and his most prominent critics have been engaged in a brutal war of words before the election. That has brought continued calls to dial down the volume from the top down. We do Jiang is in Wisconsin, very clear. Trump today called for unity axe what threats of political violence of any kind have no place in the United States of America in the past his hurled some of his harshest.

"Terrorists sending pipebombs two leaders on the left. George Soros in his mailbox on Monday in Westchester county. New York today the Clintons the Obamas. John Brennan incorrectly at CNN headquarters Time Warner center in New York City wrong place. He works at MSNBC that should be the first indication to the right wingers wanting to blame the left left-winger knows Brennan works for MSNBC. So I don't think it's an actual real left-winger that would be behind these pipebombs. Secondly, they sent the pipe bomb to Eric Holder to the incorrect address therefore it was returned. They put on of course, a fake return address, which was Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz office in sunrise, Florida Miami. Basically, there's report that Senator Kamla Harris's office was evacuated Representative Maxine Waters, also. Oh was a target of one of these pipe bombs with some kind of powder as well that they're testing FBI says these are live devices mayor de Blasio calls at terrorism as did governor Cuomo in New York City, the NYPD FBI will catch the people or the person or people behind this terror attack today, but our president won't kill it terrorism yet, I just I'm maybe not baffled. I'm disappointed. He's quick to point out terrorism in other countries, particularly if somebody maybe slightly darker space scanner speaks different languages involved quick to point out terrorism.

"Zero at Twitter Samir tweets as well at Ethan Bearman, sometimes you have to turn to Twitter for the as these breaking news stories are happening. What a horrific day pipebombs with parenting a white powder sent to the Clintons. The obamas. John Brennan incorrectly to the CNN offices, by the way, he works for NBC MSNBC. And so he got one Representative Maxine Waters in DC. There was one sent to attorney general Eric Holder which had a return address of Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz in sunrise, Florida, so she got it 'cause it was incorrectly addressed there was a pipe bomb put in the mailbox George Soros on Monday. And we also have word that Senator Kamala Harris his office in San Diego has been evacuated. So this is really a problem. President Trump came out and spoken said that. Don't have the exact quote in front of me. Right. This second. But he did not use the word terrorism. I'm curious about that so quick to point out terrorism everywhere else, but not today, and he's going to have his rally tonight still to while the FBI the NYPD and other law enforcement agencies are working to track down who is responsible. Who is responsible for sending these bombs out? This is a horrific event. There is no place for violence in the United States. When we politically disagree with one another. We argue we debate we challenge. Each other. We use facts, we do not use violence that is wrong. It is bad for civilization.
