Rep. Ilhan Omar and Rep. Rashida Tlaib are far left and anti-Israel. They both support the BDS movement, which seeks to Boycott, Divest, and Sanction Israel.
For this reason, they were both just told that they would not be able to enter the nation of Israel, as they were planning to do on an upcoming trip.
People on the left are freaking out about this, to put it mildly.
From the New York Times:
Israel Denies Entry to Omar and Tlaib After Trump’s Call to Block Them
Israel on Thursday barred two American Democratic congresswomen who had planned to visit the Israeli-occupied West Bank, hours after President Trump had urged the country to block them.
Mr. Trump’s intervention was an extraordinary step to influence an allied nation and punish his political opponents at home. Israel’s decision to bar the two congresswomen, Representatives Rashida Tlaib of Michigan and Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, was widely criticized, including by prominent Israel supporters.
The two lawmakers, both freshmen, are the first Muslim women elected to Congress. Both are outspoken adversaries of Mr. Trump and have been vocal in their support of the Palestinians and the boycott-Israel movement.
Look at how the left is framing this:
Netanyahu imposes ban of black and brown Muslim members of Congress after urging from Trump. Good luck defending that on world stage: https://t.co/lHplKhLH0j

Israel denied entry to two Muslim AMERICAN Congresswomen, one of whom is PALESTINIAN for their political views- who is surprised???
When they show you who they are, believe them.
Unacceptable any which way you think about it. Let’s see who speaks up. Justice is not selective.

Trump is such a bigot that banning Muslims from coming to America wasn’t enough for him, so now he’s pushing Netanyahu to ban two Muslim Congresswomen from Israel.

Trump not welcome in San Diego.
Ahead of Trump’s visit, Congressman Juan Vargas @RepJuanVargas says Trump is not welcome in San Diego and promises to impeach him. “He’d be welcome here if he stopped his racism … If he had some decency. He has none of that so he’s not welcome!” @KPBSnews pic.twitter.com/xQyBR42R3O

The left thinks no one remembers anything.
In fact, they’re counting on it. It’s pathetic.
