Rep.
Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) on Tuesday declared that “racism” is “a
national security threat” and urged President Donald Trump’s
administration to invest more federal funds to “get into the lives”
and “minds” of young white males who are “drawn to white
militia, white supremacy, white nationalism because they have nothing
else to do.”

“I
believe that racism… should be declared a national security
threat,” Jackson Lee said during a House Homeland Security
Committee hearing. “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.” Before
insisting again that “racism is a national security threat,”
Jackson Lee added that she is a “huge believer in civil liberties
and the Bill of Rights, and particularly the first amendment of the
Constitution.” Sen. Hawley Slams Lawmakers for Hypocrisy,
Dereliction, and Pretense as Dems Try to Block Border Security
Measures She said FBI statistics prove “an acceleration” of hate
crimes since Trump became president and asked: “Who is the
predominant actor? Young, disaffected white males… what is a major
factor? Youth.” “We must find a way to invest huge sums of money
intervening in these white minds that are drawn to white militia,
white supremacy, white nationalism because they have nothing else to
do — no intervention, no recreation, no libraries, no training of
communities,” Jackson Lee insisted.
