Over 20 Democrats, one Republican vote against resolution condemning antisemitism on college campuses

More than 20 Democrats and one Republican voted against a Thursday House resolution to condemn antisemitism on college campuses.

H.Res. 798 passed with a final tally of 396-23, comprised of a bipartisan 213 Republican votes and 183 Democrat votes.

Of the 23 that voted against the resolution, 22 were Democrats. The only Republican to vote against it was Rep. Thomas Massie, R-Ky., who cited concerns over free speech.

It told Fox News on Monday that the Department of Homeland Security and the Justice Department were working with campus law enforcement across the country in an effort to combat the “alarming rise” in antisemitic incidents and threats against Jewish communities at schools and universities.
