Despite starting her career as a strong supporter of Israel, Gillibrand has totally betrayed Israel and the American Jewish community. Gillibrand withdrew her name as a co-sponsor of the Israel Anti-Boycott Act in the Senate and opposed 2019 legislation that would weaken efforts to boycott Israel.

Called the dangerous Iran Nuclear Deal “imperfect” while still voting for it, and later referred to President Trump’s decision to withdraw from the deal as “shortsighted and dangerous.”
Despite strong stances early in her career on immigration like deporting criminal illegal aliens and building barriers on our southern border, she now believes we should abolish ICE, give amnesty to illegal aliens and opposes building a wall.
Gillibrand co-sponsored legislation in 2018 that would effectively prohibit funding for U.S. ground-launched or ballistic missiles.
