This evening, the House passed H. Res. 246, Opposing Efforts to Delegitimize the State of Israel and the Global Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) Movement targeting Israel. Congressman Roger Marshall, M.D., issued a statement following its passage:
Washington, D.C.- This week Congressman Marshall called on members of Congress to stand beside Israel and against the far-left Anti- Semitic comments made earlier this week by a Minnesota Representative.
"I must warn the general public that despite the warranted outcry we saw in response to the representative from Minnesota's irresponsible comments that this is the new normal for the liberal base in America,” Dr. Marshall said on the House floor. “Anti-Semitism has become an all-too-common occurrence among the Democrat base and the far left.”
Washington D.C.-Dr. Marshall wrote an op-ed in The Hill discussing our national security goals and objectives in the Middle East, and the role the new Secretary of Defense should play.
WASHINGTON D.C. –On Monday, Congressman Marshall, sat down with Cuban President, Miguel Díaz-Canel. In this meeting, Rep. Marshall and President Díaz-Canel discussed trade opportunities.
“As we are working to shore up our trade agreements, we are overlooking an opportunity that lies just 90 miles from our coast. Kansas farmers can and should be Cuba’s number one supplier of commodities like sorghum, soy, wheat, and corn,” Congressman Marshall said. “In our meeting, I expressed my continued support of opening markets with Cuba.”
Washington D.C.- Congressman Marshall released the following statement after President Donald Trump announced that the United States will no longer participate in Iran Nuclear Deal.

Recently, I had the opportunity to travel to Cuba with several of my colleagues on a 3-day congressional delegation. On this trip, we saw the country and were warmly welcomed by citizens and government officials alike. While everyone knows that the cars and architecture look like the year is still 1959, so much has changed, and in a very positive way. Cuba is becoming a modern country, and very much wants to engage with and trade with America.
