House Task Force On Anti-Semitism Sends Suggestions To Trump

Yesterday the eight co-chairs of the U.S. House of Representatives Bipartisan Task Force for Combating Anti-Semitism sent a letter (full text) to President Trump suggesting three specific steps to improve the government's response to anti-Semitism:
Ensure that the Civil Rights Division of the Department of Justice has access to the necessary resources and information to fully investigate alleged anti-Semitic crimes and ensure the perpetrators are brought to justice.
Ensure that a mechanism exists to coordinate inter-agency detection of and response to new anti-Semitic crimes.
Evaluate growing anti-Semitism online, particularly incitement to violence, and devise a comprehensive policy response.
Times of Israel reports on the letter.
