House censures Rep. Rashida Tlaib over Israel remarks

WASHINGTON — House lawmakers on Tuesday censured Rep. , the sole Palestinian American in Congress, over her remarks and actions in response to the Israel-Hamas war.


The censure resolution, authored by Rep. , R-Ga., passed 234 to 188, with 22 Democrats voting for it and four Republicans opposing the measure. A censure vote only requires a simple majority to pass.


The resolution censures Tlaib, D-Mich., for “promoting false narratives regarding the October 7, 2023, Hamas attack on Israel and for calling for the destruction of the state of Israel.”
