Press Release

Washington, D.C. –  Rep. Harley Rouda issued the following statement:

“I have plenty of my own differences of ideas with Rep. Omar and Rep. Tlaib, but Americans deserve a President who stands with them at home and abroad, regardless of policy disagreements. President Trump’s call for Israel to deny entry to my colleagues is the work of dictators and authoritarians, not an American president. It’s not just un-American, it’s the opposite of American. This outrageous request must be withdrawn, and Israel’s decision should be reversed immediately.”
