WASHINGTON, D.C. – Rep. Mike Gallagher (R-WI) today released the following statement after House Democrats stripped funding for Israel’s Iron Dome defense system from the Continuing Resolution.
“Earlier this year, Hamas fired thousands of missiles into Israel and led a violent campaign against Israeli civilians. The Iron Dome – which has long enjoyed bipartisan support – proved to be Israel’s best line of defense from these attacks and saved thousands of innocent lives. It’s a complete disgrace that Speaker Pelosi caved to radical, anti-Israel elements within her caucus and stripped funding for this critical system from the Continuing Resolution. Speaker Pelosi clearly doesn’t run her caucus anymore. The Squad does.”
