“This past weekend, Hamas launched a wave of unprovoked violence against Israel. I’m horrified by the news that we continue to learn about the brutality of these terrorist attacks from Hamas. And I’m committed to standing with our allies in Israel as they defend themselves and their homeland,” said Congresswoman Budzinski. “My team and I are working to help bring constituents home safely. And I’ve joined a bipartisan effort urging the State Department to consider charter and military flights to evacuate Americans as quickly as possible. I’m also an Original Co-Sponsor of two bipartisan resolutions affirming our support for Israel. It’s clear that Congress must take immediate action to pass additional aid for our friends and allies in Israel and I’ll be sure to keep you updated on our progress.”

Following the attacks on Israel, Congresswoman Budzinski has joined a bipartisan letter urging Secretary of State Antony Blinken to consider charter and military flights to evacuate U.S. nationalsfrom Israel. The State Department announced plans today to fly Americans out of Israel.

Budzinski has also cosigned a bipartisan House Committee on Foreign Affairs resolution standing with Israel as it defends itself against the barbaric war launched by Hamas and a bipartisan resolution condemning Hamas.
