    In this June 21, 2019, photo, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi of Calif., speaks with reporters at the Capitol in Washington.
    The U.S. House of Representatives will vote Tuesday on a formal resolution condemning President Donald Trump's weekend tweets aimed at four congresswomen of color that have been widely condemned as racist and "xenophobic," House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced Monday.
    Pelosi, who has said Trump's campaign slogan truly means he wants to "make America white again," wrote in a letter to colleagues that "the House cannot allow the President’s characterization of immigrants to our country to stand."
    The resolution "strongly condemns" Trump's "racist comments" and says they "have legitimized and increased fear and hatred of new Americans and people of color."
    The resolution is sponsored by New Jersey Democratic Rep. Tom Malinowski, who was born in Poland and joined by others born outside the U.S.
    Read the full text of the Resolution below:
    Condemning President Trump’s racist comments directed at Members of Congress.

    Whereas the Founders conceived America as a haven of refuge for people fleeing from religious and political persecution, and Thomas Jefferson, Alexander Hamilton, and James Madison all emphasized that the Nation gained as it attracted new people in search of freedom and livelihood for their families;
    Whereas the Declaration of Independence defined America as a covenant based on equality, the unalienable Rights of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, and government by the consent of the people;
    Whereas Benjamin Franklin said at the Constitutional convention, ‘‘When foreigners after looking about for some other Country in which they can obtain more happiness, give a preference to ours, it is a proof of attachment which ought to excite our confidence and affection’’;
    Whereas President Franklin D. Roosevelt said, ‘‘Remember, remember always, that all of us, and you and I especially, are descended from immigrants and revolutionists’’;
    Whereas immigration of people from all over the Earth has defined every stage of American history and propelled our social, economic, political, scientific, cultural, artistic and technological progress as a people, and all Americans, except for the descendants of Native people and enslaved African-Americans, are immigrants or descendants of immigrants;
    Whereas the commitment to immigration and asylum has been not a partisan cause but a powerful national value that has infused the work of many Presidents;
    Whereas American patriotism is defined not by race or ethnicity but by devotion to the Constitutional ideals of equality, liberty, inclusion, and democracy and by service to our communities and struggle for the common good;
    Whereas President John F. Kennedy, whose family came to the United States from Ireland, stated in his 1958 book ‘‘A Nation of Immigrants’’ that ‘‘The contribution of immigrants can be seen in every aspect of our national life. We see it in religion, in politics, in business, in the arts, in education, even in athletics and entertainment. There is no part of our nation that has not been touched by our immigrant background. Everywhere immigrants have enriched and strengthened the fabric of American life.’’;
    Whereas President Ronald Reagan in his last speech as President conveyed ‘‘An observation about a country which I love’’; Whereas as President Reagan observed, the torch of Lady Liberty symbolizes our freedom and represents our heritage, the compact with our parents, our grandparents, and our ancestors, and it is the Statue of Liberty and its values that give us our great and special place in the world;
    Whereas other countries may seek to compete with us, but in one vital area, as ‘‘a beacon of freedom and opportunity that draws the people of the world, no country on Earth comes close’’;
    Whereas it is the great life force of ‘‘each generation of new Americans that guarantees that America’s triumph shall continue unsurpassed’’ through the 21st century and beyond and is part of the ‘‘magical, intoxicating power of America’’;
    Whereas this is ‘‘one of the most important sources of America’s greatness: we lead the world because, unique among nations, we draw our people -- our strength -- from every country and every corner of the world, and by doing so we continuously renew and enrich our nation’’;
    Whereas ‘‘thanks to each wave of new arrivals to this land of opportunity, we’re a nation forever young, forever bursting with energy and new ideas, and always on the cutting edge’’, always leading the world to the next frontier;
    Whereas this openness is vital to our future as a Nation, and ‘‘if we ever closed the door to new Americans, our leadership in the world would soon be lost’’; and
    Whereas President Donald Trump’s racist comments have legitimized fear and hatred of new Americans and people of color: Now, therefore, be it Resolved, That the House of Representatives—
    (1) believes that immigrants and their descend3 ants have made America stronger, and that those who take the oath of citizenship are every bit as American as those whose families have lived in the United States for many generations;
    (2) is committed to keeping America open to those lawfully seeking refuge and asylum from violence and oppression, and those who are willing to work hard to live the American Dream, no matter their race, ethnicity, faith, or country of origin; and
    (3) strongly condemns President Donald Trump’s racist comments that have legitimized and increased fear and hatred of new Americans and people of color by saying that our fellow Americans who are immigrants, and those who may look to the President like immigrants, should ‘‘go back’’ to other countries, by referring to immigrants and asylum seekers as ‘‘invaders,’’ and by saying that Members of Congress who are immigrants (or those of our colleagues who are wrongly assumed to be immigrants) do not belong in Congress or in the United States of America.

    Whereas, Whereas, etc. etc. etc. So HOW MANY of these Republicans TRAITORS will vote for this Communist BS.

    WE NEED A HOUSE RESOLUTION addressing the CONSTANT and CONSISTENT USE of the 2 WEAPONIZED RACIST/RACIALIZED TERMS, "WHITE SUPREMACY", and "WHITE NATIONALIST" by Democrat Communist Party Members, which are nothing less than CODE WORDS for "WHITE GENOCIDE". White Americans are DISTINCT MINORITIES in our 2 Largest states CA. and TX. and are about to become MINORITIES in a long list of our other largest states. The CONSTANT and CONSISTENT use of these 2 RACIALIZED WEAPONED TERMS aimed at the White Community within the USA is an OBVIOUS INTENTIONAL THREATENING ATTACK upon this group and is being used to IMTIMIDATE this group.

    There is no race called "People of Color." This is just an ad hoc description designed to unite any one who can conceivably be described, or who would consider themselves as, non white. Most Caucasians aren't even of any "pure" race. This is just a lot of divisive and calculated rhetoric, like "New Americans."

    I am a "people of color"...I am white!

    Am I included in their "resolution" against the attacks they make against the WHITE people?

    That is all these nasty Democrats have done to white people the last 2+ years. Attack us in restaurants, on the street, at Rally's, in our schools.

    They bloody and throw stuff at the "white" people Pelosi...and YOU are silent against those attacks on that "color" of the American people!

    Pelosi is a disgusting, vile, old woman. We need Term Limits and get these NWO, racist, dinosaurs out of office!
