The article goes on to state the following:

They were installed ahead of a Monday morning parade planned along Pennsylvania Avenue, called a 51 Star Flag Salute to D.C. Statehood.

“We’ve lined Pennsylvania Ave with,” 51 star flags. They honor DC veterans that have served and died for our country, yet they lack representation in Congress,” Mayor Muriel Bowser tweeted.

    I am so sick of local government officials doing things that directly conflict with National Codes & Laws. Every single official from this mayor to Newsom if CA needs to be held accountable for their disregard.

    Does this surprise anyone? A party that openly encourages foreign citizens to violate US law on a regular basis. Even travels to foreign countries to encourage dishonesty.
