Below is a constituent's report about her visit to Rep Lou Correa's office in regard the student art entry of the Statue of Liberty wearing a HIJAB.
CONSTITUENT VISITS REP LOU CORREA'S DISTRICT OFFICE When I went to Correa's office I said I was there to get info on the propaganda piece (pointing to the painting). The receptionist must have pressed the panic button because immediately that tall lanky guy appears. I asked to see the detailed description on the back. He said, "No, as the name of the artist was on it ". I told him I wasn't interested in getting the name, just the description so I could understand what it was supposed to represent. Long story short I couldn't & the receptionist said that she had sent my comments to Correa. The big hint was I should leave. I stayed a full 15 minutes trying to get info on the Committee that approved it. No luck. He said that 'my group People Rising' had threatened them & they were being cautious. I said that I didn't belong to any group. I'm going to write a letter to the editor of the Register. I want to find out who's on this Committee that approved it - the ones right here in Correa's District are the ones who approved it. Will also write to the 2 Representatives listed on the website of the Arts Committee - one is a Dem & the other a Rep.
