House Republicans move to terminate 'rotten' DEI programs in federal government

PoliticsHouse Republicans move to terminate 'rotten' DEI programs in federal government

FIRST ON FOX: A group of House Republicans is leading the push to terminate programs on diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) within the federal government. 

Rep. Mark Alford, R-Mo., introduced the “Diversity Equity Inclusion Dead on Arrival Act of 2024” or “The DEI DOA Act,” backed by four fellow House Republicans.

“As a nation, we should place our focus on our commonality and the things that unite us. We certainly should not allow rotten initiatives such as Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) programs to grow within our government,” Alford told Fox News Digital.

Rep. Mark Alford is rolling out a bill aimed at defunding DEI programs in the federal government.

“That is exactly why I am introducing legislation to prevent any federal agency from instituting DEI in their trainings. My colleagues and I on the Armed Services Committee have worked tirelessly to ensure these curriculums are eliminated from our military. Now, it is time to take it a step further and eliminate DEI across the federal government.”

Alford’s bill would target DEI offices in the State Department, Treasury, and Department of Interior, among others.

It would also defund the Treasury’s Office of Civil Rights and Equal Employment Opportunity, The Office of Civil Rights of the United States Agency for International Development, and the Chief Diversity Officers Executive Council.

The bill’s introduction comes after a pair of progressives, Reps. Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass., and Jamie Raskin, D-Md., introduced a bill aimed at codifying DEI’s place in federal programming.

Their Federal Government Equity Improvement Act and the Equity in Agency Planning Act would “ensure that federal agencies continue their work to promote equal opportunity for all, including people of color, women, rural communities, individuals with disabilities, and others that have been systemically excluded from participating fully in economic, social, and civic life,” according to a press release.

Earlier this year, House Republicans forced the House of Representatives’ Office of Diversity and Inclusion to shut down as part of a deal to pass a $1.2 trillion government funding package.
