Press Release

Washington, D.C. - Congressman Jesús “Chuy” García (IL-04) issued the following statement after the Trump Administration released its plan to address the Israeli - Palestinian conflict:

“I have always strongly supported a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, but Trump’s plan doesn’t come close. His proposal does not advance a viable vision for peace, equality, and self-determination. Instead, it contradicts decades of bipartisan consensus on internationally recognized boundaries to adopt right-wing Israeli policy as the official stance of the United States. The Trump Administration has yet again released a half-baked plan and called it diplomacy.”
