Rep. Rashida Tlaib cancels West Bank visit after Israel backtracks on ban


Rep. Rashida Tlaib rejected a new offer to visit the West Bank and see her grandmother on “humanitarian” grounds, saying “oppressive conditions” around the visit are against her beliefs. Israel initially denied entry to Tlaib and Rep. Ilhan Omar, citing their support of a controversial boycott of Israel.
