Tlaib Cancels Trip to West Bank

Summary from the AllSides News Team

Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) announced that she has cancelled a visit to her grandmother in Palestine. Israel loosened its initial ban by allowing Tlaib to visit her grandmother in the West Bank. Israel also banned fellow congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D-MN) from entering the country for Omar and Tlaib's support for Boycott, Divest, and Sanction (BDS) on Israel for its role in Palestine. Some right-leaning media coverage has suggested that Tlaib's disdain for Israel outweighs her love for her family. Some left-leaning media outlets suggest that the ban is prejudiced, and lifting part of it is a poor-faith attempt to seem 'fair.'
