Cosponsor Bill to Remove Confederate Statue from Federal Land in the Nation’s Capital

Please cosponsor my bill H.R. 4135 to require the removal of a statue of Confederate General Albert Pike from federal land near Judiciary Square in the District of Columbia.  This statue is different from other Confederate statues elsewhere in the United
