Representative Keith Ellison (D -Minn.) says his vote against additional funding for Israel’s Iron Dome missile defense system is because he doesn’t want to express that, “We’re only concerned about people on one side.”

Ellison made the comments during an August 3 appearance on NBC’s ‘Meet The Press’.
