BREAKING: Senate Democrats Block Blackburn Effort To Immediately Aid Israel

April 15, 2024

Tonight, Senate Democrats blocked an effort by U.S. Senators Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) and Roger Marshall (R-Kan.) to immediately provide Israel with the assistance they need to continue their fight against terrorism. 

“Democrats say they support Israel, but their actions since October 7 to repeatedly block urgent standalone aid have told a different story. It’s deeply disappointing that in light of Iran’s historic attack this weekend, our Democratic colleagues could not put politics aside and join us in support of our Jewish friends.” — Senator Blackburn
