Collins issues statement: “We stand with Israel”

News

WASHINGTON — Rep. Doug Collins (R-Ga.) released the following statement after signing a discharge petition to bring anti-Boycott, Sanction, and Divestment (BDS) legislation to the House floor. This petition will force the House to consider H.R. 336, the Strengthening America’s Security in the Middle East Act of 2019.

“The statistics are clear: anti-Semitism is on the rise, and tragically, certain Democrats in Congress continue to add fuel to the fire. It is our job as elected officials to stand with Israel and defend its right to exist, and to condemn hateful rhetoric of any form. I’m calling on Speaker Pelosi and Democrat leadership to join us in taking a stand against anti-Semitism and the BDS movement, and to support Congress in sending a clear message to the world: we stand with Israel.”

Earlier this year, the Senate passed companion legislation, S. 1, with strong bipartisan support.

In the 115th Congress, 30 current House Democrat members cosponsored similar anti-BDS legislation.
