Two Massachusetts Congressmen remain supportive of a bill that would impose criminal penalties on Americans who support a boycott of Israel, despite concerns raised by the American Civil Liberties Union.

US Representatives Joe Kennedy III and Richard E. Neal said in statements Friday that they still support the bill known as the Anti-Israel Boycott Act. Both congressmen cosponsor the bill, along with 238 other House members.
