A small but highly symbolic painting hanging on the wall of an Orange County Congressman’s office is being criticized by some activists as unpatriotic.

The Claremont-based activist group We The People says a student art project in Democratic Rep.

Lou Correa’s Santa Ana office depicting the Statue of Liberty wearing an Islamic-style hijab violates the separation of church and state.

Correa posted a photo of the painting on his Instagram account with the following caption: “There are some who #hate this painting and want me to take it down. I see a young woman who is trying very hard to show people that she is an #American. “If I took down her #art, I’d be telling the world her experiences don’t matter and she did something wrong. This is her country too, and she earned that spot on my wall.”
