Confederate Memorials On Public Property On Review In Texas

TEXAS CONFEDERATE MEMORIALS UNDER REVIEW - A top Texas Republican wants the accuracy of memorials around the state Capitol reviewed amid calls to remove Confederate monuments. A spokesman for Texas House Speaker Joe Straus said Thursday that the powerful GOP leader will work with a Dallas lawmaker who this week singled out one Confederate plaque as "indefensible on historical grounds."

A group of alumni from one of the country's most influential evangelical Christian universities is condemning their school's president for his continued alignment with President Trump.
