Since last year’s midterm elections, a new branch of Congressional freshmen have been shaking up the political world. How has this diverse group of progressive lawmakers been challenging the status quo with US policy in the Middle East? Phil and Cooper speak with Al-Monitor’s congressional correspondent Bryant Harris about the recent spat between New York Rep. Eliot Engel and newcomer Rep. Rashida Tlaib of Michigan over the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and the battle over the pro-Palestinian boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement.

Be sure to check out Al-Monitor’s running blog following legislation on the BDS movement in Congress.
