Boebert and Donalds engage in a heated exchange with demonstrators at George Washington

Conservative House lawmakers visited a pro-Palestinian encampment at George Washington University, facing off with campus protesters. Rep. Boebert was seen tugging at a Palestinian flag on a statue of George Washington, threatening to withhold federal funds if the issue wasn’t addressed. Rep. Luna highlighted the difference between peaceful protest and disruptive actions by non-student protesters. Rep. Donalds explained the legislative authority to address the encampment on federal property. GW officials have suspended multiple students but have not disbanded the protest. Mayor Bowser has not addressed specific requests for assistance. MPD did not confront the encampment due to concerns about optics.
