U.S. Representative Mariannette Miller-Meeks (IA-01) released the following statement condemning the antisemitic actions and statements of Representative Rashida Tlaib (MI-12):

“Representative Rashida Tlaib has a long history of making antisemitic remarks since becoming a Member of Congress. The Congresswoman has made multiple dangerous comments erroneously referring to Israel as an ‘apartheid’ and ‘racist’ state, accusing the Government of Israel of ‘ethnic cleansing’ against Palestinians, and she has claimed that Israel is ‘promoting racism and dehumanization.’ I condemn Representative Tlaib’s repulsive actions and remarks and wholeheartedly believe that they are contributing to the rise in violent actions against American Jewish communities. The Ethics Committee should urgently address her conduct, which is why I have cosponsored multiple resolutions condemning her speech and calling for censure. It’s essential that the House bring up these resolutions for consideration that point to the facts of Representative Tlaib’s harmful behavior. We must condemn these actions in a Constitutionally correct manner, and I urge my colleagues to support these bills and our Jewish communities.”
