US Democratic Senator Chuck Schumer slammed Israel’s Thursday decision to bar Democratic Congresswomen Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar from entering the country ahead of a planned Friday visit.

“Denying entry to members of the US Congress,” said Schumer, “is a sign of weakness, not strength.” He warned that the recent move will “only hurt the US-Israel relationship and support for Israel in America.”
