U.S. Jewish groups oppose legislation that would ban the use of classified information to deport suspected terrorists. An official with the Anti- Defamation League, Tom Homberger, criticized the Secret Evidence Repeal Act during testimony before the House Judiciary Committee and called for an approach that would balance the rights of suspected terrorists with national security interests. His testimony was supported by groups including the American Jewish Congress, Hadassah, and the Jewish Council for Public Affairs.
