At least eight Democrats in Congress are teaming up with controversial Palestinian-American activist Linda Sarsour for the anti-Trump "March for Truth" taking place Saturday.
Democratic Reps. Jerrold Nadler, Nydia Velasquez, Brad Sherman, Mike Quigley, Al Green, Robin Kelly, Jamie Raskin and Donald McEachin are among the featured speakers at Saturday's protest, according to a press release organizers put out on Tuesday. Sarsour is also listed as a featured speaker and the organization she helps lead, Women's March, is one of the left-wing groups organizing Saturday's protest.
Sarsour has faced criticism over her known ties to terrorist group Hamas, her defense of sharia law, her claim that Saudi Arabia puts America "to shame" because it treats women so well, and her position that Islam critic and female genital mutilation victim Ayaan Hirsi Ali "doesn't deserve" to be a woman and should have her vagina taken away. Sarsour also appeared at an event last month alongside convicted Palestinian terrorist Rasmea Odeh.
