On Thursday, the House passed a resolution condemning anti-Semitism and other forms of bigotry. The resolution comes after days of debate over comments by Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., that some lawmakers said were anti-Jewish.
The vote was 427 in favor, 23 against and one member voting "present." An initial plan for a resolution that focused on anti-Semitism was broadened to include language against Islamophobia, and hatred of many minority groups.
The seven-page resolution, the text of which was released and then updated again Thursday afternoon, condemns "anti-Semitism as hateful expressions of intolerance that are contradictory to the values and aspirations that define the people of the United States" and "anti-Muslim discrimination and bigotry against minorities as hateful expressions of intolerance that are contrary to the values and aspirations of the United States."
