WASHINGTON, D.C. - Following President Trump's announcement recognizing Israel's sovereignty over the Golan Heights, U.S. Sens. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) and Rep. Mike Gallagher (R-Wis.) issued the following statement:

"We applaud the president for formally recognizing Israel's sovereignty over the Golan Heights, an acknowledgement that enhances the national security of both Israel and the United States. At a time when Israel's northern border is threatened by Iranian forces and their proxies in Lebanon and Syria, including by Hezbollah's rockets, armed drones, and newly discovered terror tunnels, this recognition will be great news for our ally and its right to self-defense. More work remains to be done to align American policy with today's recognition. We look forward to advancing our bicameral legislation on the Golan Heights which acknowledges Israel's sovereignty over its territory, streamlines Congressional language, and expands the basis for joint projects on the issue."

In February, the members introduced companion bills establishing that it shall be the policy of the United States to recognize Israel's sovereignty over the Golan Heights.
