Several House Republicans, led by Reps. Marjorie Taylor Greene (Ga.) and Paul Gosar (Ariz.), are reportedly forming a caucus that calls for a “common respect for uniquely Anglo-Saxon political traditions.”

A policy platform for the group, which calls itself the America First Caucus, declares that “a certain intellectual boldness is needed” in order to “follow in President Trump’s footsteps, and potentially step on some toes and sacrifice sacred cows for the good of the American nation.”

The seven-page document, first obtained by Punchbowl News, is explicit in its nativist rhetoric and describes American culture as dominated by “Anglo-Saxon” and European influences.

“America is a nation with a border, and a culture, strengthened by a common respect for uniquely Anglo-Saxon political traditions. History has shown that societal trust and political unity are threatened when foreign citizens are imported en-masse into a country, particularly without institutional support for assimilation and an expansive welfare state to bail them out should they fail to contribute positively to the country,” the platform states.

In a section describing its position on infrastructure, the caucus says it will “work towards an infrastructure that reflects the architectural, engineering and aesthetic value that befits the progeny of European architecture.”

It adds that public infrastructure “must be utilitarian as well as stunningly, classically beautiful, befitting a world power and source of freedom.”
