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 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.
