GOP Lawmakers Aim to Strip Government of All DEI Programs

A group of Republican lawmakers is working to strip all DEI programs out of the government through legislation they call the Dismantle DEI Act. 

“This bill goes through the federal government and works to remove the officers, the programs” centered on DEI, or diversity, equity, and inclusion, Rep. Michael Cloud, R-Texas, says. 

Cloud and Sen. JD Vance, R-Ohio, along with 20 other members of Congress, introduced the Dismantle DEI Act to end the use of taxpayer money to fund programs that Cloud says are discriminatory in nature. 

DEI programs “make race the very first lens in which you interpret everything,” Cloud said, adding that millions in taxpayer dollars are being spent on something that “produces no value for anyone.” 

Cloud joins “The Daily Signal Podcast” to explain how the Dismantle DEI Act would work if passed and enacted. The Texas lawmaker also discusses growing threats along the southern border and how his fellow Texans view the border crisis.
