( -- In response to the confrontation between left-wing Indian activists and some Catholic teens following the March for Life, Rep. John Yarmuth (D-Ky.), chairman of the House Budget Committee, has publicly called for prohibiting teenagers from wearing caps that say, "Make America Great Again" (MAGA). 

"I am calling for a total and complete shutdown of teenagers wearing MAGA hats until we can figure out what is going on," Yarmuth tweeted on Jan. 20, after a partial video of the confrontation was released.

House Budget Committee.

"They seem to be poisoning young minds," he said. 

In a second part to that tweet, the congressman wrote, "The conduct we saw in this video is beyond appalling, but it didn't happen in a vacuum."

"This is a direct result of the racist hatred displayed daily by the President of the United States who, sadly, some mistake for a role model," said Yarmuth. 


The FirstAmendment to the Constitution reads, "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."
