American victims of Palestinian terror attacks filed a lawsuit against President Joe Biden and Secretary of State Antony Blinken Tuesday for the financial aid to the Palestinian Authority, stressing that these funds end up in “Pay for Slay” rewards given to terrorists and violate the Taylor Force Act.

The Palestinian Authority pays terrorists or the families of terrorists “salaries” if they carry out an attack or are arrested and imprisoned. These payments are commonly known as Pay for Slay.

What is the Taylor Force Act?

The lawsuit filed on Tuesday in the US District Court for the Northern District of Texas, Amarillo Division, points to the Taylor Force Act passed under the Trump administration which prohibits the Executive Branch from providing certain types of foreign assistance to the PA unless the PA takes “credible steps” to end acts of violence against Israeli and American citizens and ends Pay for Slay payments.

The US secretary of state is required by the law to periodically certify in writing to the appropriate congressional committees that such steps have been taken by the PA. Certain types of funds, such as payments to the east Jerusalem Hospital Network, assistance for wastewater projects and assistance for vaccination programs, are exempted from the ban.
