WASHINGTON — Congressional Progressive Caucus Chair Pramila Jayapal (WA-07) and Whip Greg Casar (TX-35) released the following statement in support of CPC Deputy Chair Ilhan Omar (MN-05) following the introduction of a censure resolution against the Congresswoman:
 “The Congressional Progressive Caucus fully stands with our Deputy Chair, Representative Ilhan Omar, in condemning this baseless, blatantly Islamophobic censure resolution. We see this for what it is: a political stunt to stir up hate within the MAGA extremist base. Throughout her service as Deputy Chair of the Progressive Caucus, Rep. Omar has brought invaluable leadership and continues to bring a vital perspective to the People’s House. We stand with her.”
