WASHINGTON -- Today, Rep. Mark Green signed a discharge petition to force a floor vote on a Senate-passed bill to condemn the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement. If the petition garners 218 Member signatures, a bill goes to the floor for a vote.
"The Senate passed a bill to support Israel earlier this year with wide, bipartisan support. But Nancy Pelosi refuses to bring it the floor — instead she lets open anti-Semites like Rep. Ilhan Omar and Rep. Rashida Tlaib control the U.S. House," said Rep. Mark Green.
"Someone has to lead and stand up for our ally Israel. I am proud to stand alongside Republican leaders in the House to condemn the BDS (Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions) movement that seeks to shame and isolate America’s best ally in the Middle East," continued Green.
