Washington, D.C. – Congresswoman Elise Stefanik today voted to support Israel’s Iron Dome after House Democrats stripped this funding for Israel’s missile defense system from the government funding package on Monday.
“This week, we witnessed Nancy Pelosi cave to the Anti-Semitic requests of her most radical members,” Stefanik said. “It is unacceptable that House Democrats would be willing to deny funding for Israel’s purely defensive system that saves innocent lives from Hamas terrorists’ indiscriminate rocket attacks. While the Far-Left Squad would abandon our ally and align themselves with international terrorist organizations and the Iranian regime, I am proud stand with Israel.”
This provision would provide $1 billion for Israel’s Iron Dome missile defense system.
