Congressional Democrats call for investigation after Congresswomen barred from Israel


“I should be on a plane to see her,” Rep. Rashida Tlaib said of her canceled visit to see her grandmother in the West Bank. Israel barred Tlaib and Rep. Ilhan Omar from making a trip there, then said Tlaib would be allowed in with conditions - an offer she ultimately rejected. Now Congressional Democrats are calling for an investigation into the role the U.S. ambassador to Israel may have played.
