Share the article: Illinois Congressional Democrats Refuse to Condemn Hamas Attack

CHICAGO — In a resounding show of bipartisan support, the United States Congress passed a resolution on October 25th, firmly reaffirming the nation’s unwavering commitment to Israel’s security and unequivocally condemning acts of terrorism, particularly those perpetrated by the Hamas terrorist group. Despite the overwhelming bipartisan support, among the 10 “Nay” votes and 6 “Present” votes were two Illinois Democrats.

Congresswoman Delia Ramirez was among the Democrats who voted against condemning Hamas, while Rep. Chuy Garcia refused to take a stand on the issue by voting present. Being unable to condemn terrorist actions is unconscionable, something even their own party members agree with.

Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the former chairwoman of the DNC,¬†said about the vote: “Someone who votes against this I would think doesn’t have a soul.”

“When elected ‘leaders’ like Ramirez and Garcia hesitate to unequivocally condemn terrorism, Illinois should be concerned about their ability to lead responsibly and effectively,”
said ILGOP Chairman Don Tracy.¬†“When groups like Hamas take human shields, including Illinoisans, as hostages to use them as leverage, that is terrorism and should not be condoned or forgiven. Shame on Representatives Ramirez and Garcia.”
