Ardent Boycott Divestment and Sanction (BDS) advocates Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MI) and Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MN) are now being barred from entering Israel. A government official had given a statement to Israeli news station News 12 saying that the congresswomen visit  “will lead to serious image, diplomatic and explanatory damage.”

President Trump sounded off on Twitter after Israel announced it wouldn't let them into the country.

President Trump pointed out that Rep. Tlaib and Rep. Omar both hate Israel and Jewish people probably referring to the multiple instances they made statements that were considered to be anti-Semitic. 

According to the Jewish Chronicle, Israel has a right to deny entry of anyone who supports the BDS movement, but a waiver can be issued if diplomatic relations could be harmed. Both congresswomen though haven't received one and are due to be in the country tomorrow.
