The GOP-led House passed a resolution on Wednesday evening “condemning antisemitism on university campuses and the testimony of university presidents in the House Committee on Education and the Workforce."

The final vote was 303-126 with 3 voting present. Two-thirds of the House was needed to pass the measure.

There were 3 university presidents who testified on Capitol Hill last week at a hearing on antisemitism.

Following the hearing, many lawmakers called for the university presidents to resign. The University of Pennsylvania president later stepped down while the Harvard University and Massachusetts Institute of Technology presidents remain in their positions.
