Vandals spray paint office of Texas congresswoman who supports Israel


The McAllen, Texas offices of Republican Rep. Monica De La Cruz were spray painted overnight with the words, “Israel kills Jews too.” The vandals also left behind sheets sprayed with the words, “Monica murders,” and “Israel is doing genocide and you support it.” On the sidewalk in front of her office, “you can’t escape your crimes Monica” was spray painted.

McAllen is the largest city in Hidalgo County, which is in southern Texas, bordering Mexico, where millions of illegal immigrants have flooded across, and where known and suspected terrorists have slipped over the border. The Biden Administration decision to end Title 42 expulsions and to end the Remain-in-Mexico policy has led to historic levels of illegal crossings.

De La Cruz was unapologetic in her defense of Israel.

“On October 7th, Iranian-backed Hamas terrorists murdered over 1,000 innocent civilians, including many Americans, in the single largest massacre of Jews since the Holocaust,” she wrote on X/Twitter.

“These pro-Hamas activists who have vandalized my office may disregard the importance of standing with our Jewish brothers and sisters during their darkest hour, but I do not,” De La Cruz wrote. “My support for Israel and the Jewish community is, always has been, and always will be unwavering.”

She said she has been in contact with local rabbis to reassure them that her support will not waver, in spite of the vandalism and barely veiled threats against her.

“I make no apologies for standing firmly against anti-Semitism. These vandals will not intimidate or silence me,” she wrote. “An attack on one of us is an attack on all of us, and such abhorrent behavior has no place in our community, our state, or our nation,” De La Cruz posted.

Earlier this week, a Jewish man in Los Angeles was killed by a pro-Hamas protester who hit him on the head.


  1. A sure sign that our education system has failed our children miserably!!!! History is no longer taught, it is fabricated 🇺🇸🇮🇱🇺🇸🇮🇱🇺🇸

  2. Who vandalized whom? Who killed the Jewish man– may his soul rest in peace? People hurt each other individually, too. That’s the basis of ‘hate crimes’ laws, I think. (Seems that’s a popular slogan at the NRA, too. Talk about a non-sequiter. )

  3. There should be camera footage. If not, then the office can no longer not have security footage. Especially the border breach occurring bringing over only God knows who has come over and their intentions. Our American leadership need to be careful going out . Americans had naively believed people from other countries are good and wholesome people too long they grown up to ignore the reality of other countries peoples. There are some very bad people worse than Americans full of conceit, deception, abuse, prejudice and ignorance and they don’t care about life.

  4. Anti-Semitism has little to do with illegal border crossings. Conflating hate is an avenue for maintaining minority white privilege
