Hudson Strongly Condemns the Global Boycott Movement Against Israel
WASHINGTON, D.C. - Today U.S. Representative Richard Hudson (NC-08) released the following statement encouraging his colleagues to support H.Res. 246, a resolution opposing efforts to delegitimize the State of Israel and the Global Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) Movement targeting Israel:
“The toxic attack on Israel’s right to exist has no place in our society, and I encourage my colleagues to support this legislation condemning the BDS movement,” said Rep. Hudson. “Today’s resolution is a good step, but we need to have a vote on the bipartisan Senate bill with teeth. I’m disappointed not one House Democrat is willing to stand against Speaker Pelosi and anti-Israel House Democrats to sign the discharge petition to bring this critical bill to the floor. We must confront this anti-Semitic poison head on and continue to stand up for Israel and its citizens.”
Today the House is expected to consider H.Res. 246. While this resolution expresses the sense of the House, it does not take tangible action to combat the ugly BDS movement or have any teeth to it. Rep. Hudson is a cosponsor of H.R. 336, which, among other effective provisions, contains the Combatting BDS Act of 2019. This bill would take legitimate steps to repudiate the anti-Semitic BDS movement. 

Rep. Hudson is one of 196 House Republicans who have signed on to a discharge petition that would bring H.R. 336 to the floor for an up-or-down vote. A companion version of this legislation, S. 1, received overwhelming bipartisan support in the Senate.
