The House overwhelmingly voted to censure Democratic Rep. Rashida Tlaib (Mich.) yesterday over her anti-Israel remarks.

Twenty-two Democrats sided with 212 Republicans in favor of the largely symbolic punishment. Georgia Republican Rep. Rich McCormick introduced the measure, saying Tlaib’s comments were dangerous rhetoric.

Tlaib, for her part, remained unrepentant of her comments and grew emotional when defending her statements.

The Michigan Democrat vowed to continue pushing for a ceasefire and a “lasting peace that upholds the human rights and dignity of all people.”
