Congress approves measure condemning Charlottesville violence, white nationalists

Source: ABC News

Congress is pushing President Trump to take a stand against white supremacists and commit his administration's resources to combating hate crimes.

The House on Tuesday unanimously approved a bipartisan joint resolution from Virginia lawmakers condemning the violence in Charlottesville, white nationalists and the Ku Klux Klan.

Along with recognizing the death of Heather Heyer, the measure urges Trump to "use all available resources to address the threats posed by those groups," and describes the violence in Charlottesville in August as a "domestic terrorist attack."

It also calls on Attorney General Jeff Sessions to work the Department of Homeland Security to "thoroughly" investigate actions taken by white supremacist groups to determine if any criminal laws were broken in Charlottesvile.

3. If nothing is done about these violent racist groups, this resolution is just symbolic.

And I have my doubts, since so much of the GOP counts on these inbreds in the ranks of white supremacist groups.
