Reps. Paul Gosar, R-Ariz., and Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., are forming the America First Caucus

Two of the most extreme Republicans in Congress are appealing to likeminded lawmakers to join them in a new group that seeks to carry on former President Donald Trump’s agenda attacking immigrants and promoting “Anglo-Saxon” traditions in government and architecture.
Reps. Paul Gosar, R-Ariz., and Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., are forming the America First Caucus that seems to pick up Trump’s global grievances where he left them after leaving office in January.
The nativist aims of the group are spelled out in a document obtained by Punchbowl News that makes clear the caucus is willing to “step on some toes and sacrifice sacred cows for the good of the American nation.”
Gosar’s office could not be immediately reached Friday for comment.
The caucus seeks to end election fraud, something election officials across the country maintain is not a systemic problem, but echoes Trump’s baseless claims of a stolen election last year.
It blames bureaucrats in Washington for forming a new oligarchy that is “far more decadent, corrosive and hostile to the will of the people” than the monarch the founders feared.
