Rep. Schneider on Omar, Tlaib: ‘The Decision to Block Their Entry Puts Israel in a Bad Light’

‘I think it’s short sighted but also wrong’


SCHNEIDER: "Well, I had a long conversation with Ambassador Dermer and I heard their concerns about the perspectives that both Tlaib and Omar have, and quite honestly I have been critical of their positions on Israel long before the trip. But the ambassador made a promise last month that all members of Congress would be welcomed to Israel. I think that was the right policy, I think the decision to block their entry was the wrong policy. It puts Israel on a bad light. I think it’s short sighted but I think it's also wrong.”
