Rep.

Rashida Tlaib Decides Against Visiting Israel.

In a recent statement posted to Twitter, United States Rep.

Rashida Tlaib explained why she decided against visiting Israel.

I have decided that visiting my grandmother under these oppressive conditions stands against everything I believe in--fighting against racism, oppression & injustice, Rep.

Rashida Tlaib, via statement .

Tlaib had originally been barred from entering the country along with fellow representative Ilhan Omar, due to their outspoken criticism of Israel.

.

The next day, she requested permission to enter on humanitarian grounds, promising to “respect the restrictions imposed on her in the visit.”.

Shortly after being granted permission however, members of Tlaib’s family urged her to stand strong in her beliefs and not give in to the restrictions.

.

We reject the decision of the Israeli occupation to ban the entry of Congresswomen Rashida Tlaib…It should be her natural right, not a favor to ask for, to visit her homeland and family, Muftiya and Ghassan Tlaib, via CNN
