Congress passed a resolution that urges the Trump administration to condemn and commit resources to combat white supremacy and Neo-Nazi groups.
The legislation which overwhelmingly passed the Senate on Monday and was passed by a voice vote in the House Tuesday evening now heads to President Trump's desk.
The joint resolution asks the Trump administration to speak out against hate groups that "espouse racism, extremism, xenophobia, anti-Semitism, and White supremacy." It also calls on Attorney General Jeff Sessions to investigate any acts of violence or domestic terrorism committed by white supremacists and neo-Nazi groups.
The House version was introduced by Rep. Tom Garrett, R-Va., who represents Charlottesville, and had the support of Virginia's entire delegation, which consists of seven Republicans and four Democrats.
"Tonight, the House of Representatives spoke in one unified voice to unequivocally condemn the shameful and hate-filled acts of violence carried out by the KKK, white nationalists, white supremacists and neo-Nazis in Charlottesville. I hope this bipartisan action will help heal the wounds left in the aftermath of this tragedy and send a clear message to those that seek to divide our country that there is no place for hate and violence," Rep. Gerald Conolly, D-Va., said in a statement Tuesday.
Trump came under fire in the aftermath of the Charlottesville rally by many that felt he didn't do enough to condemn white supremacists and the KKK while denouncing "hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides."
The joint resolution now awaits Trump's signature or veto after weeks of criticism to his controversial response to the deadly rally that claimed the life of 32-year-old Heather Heyer and two Virginia state police officers.
