Headcovering causes controversy in Congress
December 24, 2018
A disagreement over wearing a hijab, an Islamic head covering, on the floor of the U.S. Congress is causing quite a controversy. Representative Ilhan Omar (D-Minnesota) wears a hijab as part of her religion. However, pastor E.W. Jackson spoke out against politicians wearing any headcoverings. Sixth grader Diana Tamayo has the story as part of a current events assignment in Social Studies class.
