Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) on Tuesday said the Trump administration should declare racist beliefs a threat to U.S. national security.
During a hearing of the House Homeland Security Committee, Jackson Lee said that the attack in her home state of Texas last week displayed the danger of ignoring U.S. residents who foster white supremacist views.
The article goes on to state the following:
“I believe that racism…should be declared a national security threat,” said Jackson Lee, the panel’s chair.
“Racism is a national security threat. Before, we would say, ‘you have a right to your racist views. You have a right to believe that slavery was right. That segregation was right. We live in an era where that can no longer be allowed,” she continued.
“Jackson Lee said Tuesday that racists who target Hispanics or other people of color can be bolstered by the workplace raid,” Hawaii News Now reported. “‘They see a brown person and they see the government rounding up and they’re saying, “That’s what I should be doing, but I won’t round up. I will kill,”‘ Jackson Lee said.”
