WASHINGTON – U.S. Representative Jeb Hensarling (TX-5) released the following statement honoring the historic dedication of the U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem:

“This is a powerfully historic moment in time. Along with the recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s rightful and eternal capital, the dedication ceremony that took place is an enormous milestone in history not only for Israel but for America as well. As our friends continue to protect their heritage and future generations from adversaries, I wish our sister country, greatest ally, and U.S. Embassy the very best as they continue their work in the Holy City.”
