Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY) walks by a statue of Robert E. Lee, a leader of the Confederate Army of Northern Virginia, in the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C., U.S., on Thursday, July 23, 2020. The House of Representatives voted on Wednesday to remove Confederate statues from the U.S. Capitol as part of an effort to remove symbols of racism. Photo by Sarah Silbiger/UPI
