134 representatives of the United States Congress signed a letter to Curtis Marez, former President of the American Studies Association [ASA], condemning the ASA Boycott of Israeli academic institutions.

The letter states that the "decision to blacklist Israeli institutions... demonstrates a blatant disregard for academic freedom." It also protests the decision to single out Israel as "thinly veiled bigotry and bias against the Jewish state." It praised the more than 100 university presidents for rejecting what it calls "this morally dishonest double-standard..."

The signers of the letter were a notably bipartisan group.
