Members of Southern Arizona’s congressional delegation were split along party lines in their reaction to President Donald Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and to relocate the U.S. embassy there from Tel Aviv.

Two-term U.S. Rep. Martha McSally, who represents District 2, applauded the announcement, saying the embassy should be moved to the Israeli capital in the next two years. The retired Air Force colonel said it finally makes good on a promise made by Congress in 1995 to move the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem.
