Democrat Rep. Rashida Tlaib tweets that visiting her grandmother under ‘oppressive conditions’ would stand against everything she believes in; Rich Edson has the latest from the State Department. Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., indicated Friday that she will not travel to the West Bank to visit family, despite getting permission hours before from Israel’s interior minister — following a diplomatic firestorm over the government’s earlier refusal to allow her and a colleague entry as part of a broader visit. “I have decided that visiting my grandmother under these oppressive conditions stands against everything I believe in–fighting against racism, oppression & injustice,” she tweeted. This was an apparent reference to Tlaib’s earlier pledge not to promote boycotts of Israel during her visit.
