Khaled for U.S.Senate 2022 Election

 

“Simply put, there has never been a more important time to reduce our military in the Middle East and make these regions pay for their protection, reduce domestic violence in all states, free education for American citizens students in universities, Khaled plans to sponsor legislation for emergency laws aimed at any country that holds Americans in violation of their human rights under international law, protect our citizens detained and bring them back home from the Middle East, South America, and overseas,” Khaled says. Freeing detained Americans abroad has become Khaled’s core issue. But it is not one with a simple solution.

 

 

Khaled Salem Announces Candidacy for U.S. Senate in New York State

A passionate advocate of free university education along with human and religious rights for Americans at home and abroad

 

NEW YORK—August 4, 2020—Khaled Salem announced that he is running for the U.S. Senate, challenging four-term incumbent Chuck Schumer in the 2022 election. Khaled, a longtime resident of Brooklyn, is a passionate advocate of human and religious rights for Americans, both at home and abroad. His other policy positions argue for free university education and less restrictive immigration laws.

 

“New York State is one of the most diverse places in the country, perhaps even in the entire world,” remarked Khaled. “For this reason, it needs representation in the Senate that can deliver legislative outcomes reflecting its unique cultural and religious needs. That is what I intend to fight for when I represent New York as a U.S. Senator.”

 

Khaled proposes that there should be free education for American students in universities. In addition, he plans to sponsor legislation for emergency laws aimed at any country that holds Americans in violation of their human rights under international law. He believes the federal government should enact a law in which American citizens have the right to have or remove their place of birth printed on their passports to protect them from racism abroad.

 

In addition, Khaled envisions legislation that extends a three-month “visit visa” to first- and second-degree relatives (e.g. grandparents)who currently lack eligibility to visit. This type of law, which is available in Canada, does not exist in the U.S., whose embassies refuse requests for visits. Further to this immigration agenda, Khaled argues for new laws to protect American citizens from discrimination and inequality in American embassies. “Americans would be shocked, and indeed should be quite angry at the way their own government treats fellow citizens in embassies and consulates around the world,” Khaled added.

 

Finally, Khaled advocates for a legislative innovation that would permit an American citizen with Islamic religion to marry a second wife after approval from the first wife, whether inside or outside the United States of America.

 

Khaled will be running in then ext regular United States Senate elections, which will be held on November 8, 2022. Thirty-four of the Senate’s 100 seats are being contested in these elections.​


For a litany of reasons, the United States Department of State and U.S. Embassies have failed to protect citizens abroad. They are unable to provide proper legal resources, represent citizens in overseas courts, provide medical help, or provide much-needed translators. As a result, countless citizens of our country find themselves in nearly hopeless situations, unable to return to the country they call home.


Meanwhile, the United States Government continues to provide financial aid to several of these countries, supporting them as they seek to become powerful nations, despite the fact that these countries are imprisoning United States citizens.

In order for these unacceptable practices to be brought to an end, the United States needs new voices in the government who are unafraid of boldly tackling the issues we face in the modern world.


Khaled’s expertise makes him exactly what this country needs. In addition to improving international relations, Khaled is committed to making a better and more productive experience for dual citizens.

He knows as well as anyone that immigrants shaped the foundations of this country and that the United States’ strength will always be tied to its diversity.

Khaled wants to end dual citizens to protect our citizens abroad. 

Khaled wants to improve access to education, career opportunities, and medical treatment for all of our citizens, regardless of where they came from.


In recent years, cynical politicians have been trying to divide this great nation, turning black against white, man against woman, and native again immigrant.

 

Khaled understands that America is better than that and that American citizens are sick and tired of the divisive politics that have threatened to tear apart the fabric of this nation.

 

While he is a proud Muslim, Khaled intends to represent everyone in New York, regardless of where they come from, how much money they make, or the color of their skin.


As you’re well aware, this nation is currently facing challenges unlike anything in its history.

Khaled believes that the people of America will come together to overcome, just like they have time and time again throughout history. If you are ready to be a part of the solution, to show the world that America is still a leading beacon of freedom for all peoples, and to bring an end to this era of chaos and division, join Khaled’s team today.


Khaled’s supporters have already built him an immense grassroots following, and this is only the beginning. Together, we can send Khaled Salem to Washington where he will fight for the good of all America.

I HOPE TO EARN YOU VOTE IN NOVEMBER 8,2022
