The racial tension the Trump Administration continues to breed is causing major tension on the hill, as white lawmakers push the envelope of racial innuendo.

On June 21 in a House Judiciary Committee meeting Rep. Steve King from Iowa pushed the envelope to far when he referenced a nation known for gang warfare to the City of New Orleans.

King wanted to pass a law requiring tracking of immigrant children from “high-crime” countries. But when he tried to compare El Salvador, a nation mired in gang warfare, to New Orleans to make his case, Rep. Cedric Richmond, D-New Orleans, was having none of it.

 

“If it takes walking across there, then I’m prepared to do that, too,” Richmond said.

Watch the video to see the heated exchange.
