Summary

A House vote on a resolution condemning anti-Semitism, following recent comments by U.S. Rep Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., has been delayed, as Democrats scramble to rewrite the motion to include all forms of prejudice and progressives like Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez come to the defense of their embattled colleague.The declaration – which doesn’t mention Omar by name – was initially set to be introduced Wednesday. And I believe that Ilhan, in her statement a few weeks ago, has demonstrated a willingness to listen+work w/impacted communities.”Omar’s anti-Semitic comments have also prompted calls to remove her from the House Foreign Affairs Committee, a move Republicans say would be an appropriate punishment as when they stripped Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, from committee memberships after he made remarks deemed racist.CLICK HERE TO GET THE FOX NEWS APPYet U.S. Rep. Eliot Engel, D-N.Y., chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, dismissed such action against Omar and said her presence on the committee isn’t tied to her comments.“I don't think the Foreign Affairs Committee should be used as punishment for anybody,” Engel told reporters, according to Politico.
