WATCH: Tlaib Breaks Down in Tears During Presser Over Being Blocked from Israel

Moments after being introduced by fellow “squad” member Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib broke down in tears during an emotional press conference.

Omar and Tlaib claimed Israel played into Trump’s hands in silencing their voices and limiting their freedom of expression.

Tlaib condemned Netanyahu for taking “a page out of Trump’s book.”

DailyCaller reports Tlaib of Michigan and Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar were denied entry into Israel because of their support for the boycott, known as Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement. Anyone supporting boycotting Israel can be denied entry into the country under Israeli law.

Tlaib then requested permission to go visit her grandmother and promised not to promote boycotts, and was granted permission to enter the country. Hours after being granted a humanitarian visa, Tlaib denied the visa and went after the Israeli government for “oppressive conditions.”
