Israel will allow Rashida Tlaib to enter country but maintains ban on Ilhan Omar
Friday, 16 August 2019 () Israel’s government changed its mind overnight and will allow a visit from one of the two Democraticcongresswomen it barred from entering the country. Rashida Tlaib will get a humanitarian pass to visit relatives in the West Bank, but her colleague Ilhan Omar is still excluded. Israel’s Prime Minister made that decision Thursday after pressure from President Trump. Margaret Brennan reports.
While Israel said Friday that Rep. Rashida Tlaib will be allowed to visit relatives on the West Bank, she has since backed off plans for a visit, calling the Israeli government’s conditions “oppressive.” Katie Johnston reports.
