Eshoo Statement on Israel’s Decision to Block Members of Congress from Entering the Country

August 15th, 2019

PALO ALTO, CA — Congresswoman Anna G. Eshoo (D-CA) released the following statement regarding Israel’s decision to block two Members of Congress from entering the country:

“Israel’s decision to deny two sitting Members of Congress from entering the country is deeply disappointing and counterproductive to the special bond between the United States and Israel. Fact-finding trips to foreign countries are highly instructive for Members, and Israel should use this opportunity to engage in productive dialogue.

“President Trump’s comments encouraging Israel to deny Members of Congress entry into Israel are borne out of ignorance, and it’s sad that Prime Minister Netanyahu took the bait.”
