Feb 13, 2019
Press Release

Congressman Kevin McCarthy released the following statement on the passage of the Motion to Recommit H.J. Res. 37 adding language against anti-Semitism:

"In a defining moment for the U.S. House of Representatives and the country as a whole, Republicans and Democrats voted as one today to condemn anti-Semitism around the world, to denounce all attempts to delegitimize Israel’s right to exist, and to oppose efforts to impose boycotts on Israel. Amid the troubling rise of anti-Semitism, including attacks on synagogues and Jewish cemeteries, it is our duty as a nation to stand firmly against intolerance and division. This overwhelmingly positive and cohesive vote shows there is no place for anti-Semitism in any form, anytime, anywhere."

Note: the Resolution passed 424-0
