Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., introduced a resolution to censure Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., on the House floor Thursday.

The privileged resolution focuses on Tlaib's anti-Israel statements and actions.

The resolution also alleges that Tlaib helped organize the pro-Palestinian pro-ceasefire protest and sit-in that took place on Capitol Hill last week, which resulted in arrests.

The resolution will "appear in the record" for two legislative days and be put to a vote at a later date, according to the presiding officer on the House floor.

Tlaib was one of 9 Democrat members who voted on Wednesday against a resolution to condemn the Hamas attack on Israel.

Tlaib issued a statement in response to the resolution.

"Marjorie Taylor Greene’s unhinged resolution is deeply Islamophobic and attacks peaceful Jewish anti-war advocates. I am proud to stand in solidarity with Jewish peace advocates calling for a ceasefire and an end to the violence. I will not be bullied, I will not be dehumanized, and I will not be silenced," she said.

"I will continue to call for ceasefire, for the immediate delivery of humanitarian aid, for the release of hostages and those arbitrarily detained, and for every American to be brought home. I will continue to work for a just and lasting peace that upholds the human rights and dignity of all people, and ensures that no person, no child has to suffer or live in fear of violence," she added.
