August 15, 2019

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Chuck Schumer today released the following statement in response to Israel’s decision to deny entry to members of the United States Congress:

“Denying entry to members of the United States Congress is a sign of weakness, not strength. It will only hurt the U.S.-Israeli relationship and support for Israel in America. No democratic society should fear an open debate. Many strong supporters of Israel will be deeply disappointed in this decision, which the Israeli government should reverse.”
