OKLAHOMA CITY – House Speaker Charles McCall issued the following statement today regarding the House GOP Platform Caucus.

“There are currently 72 Republican members in the Oklahoma House of Representatives. A few of those Republicans are also members of the GOP Platform Caucus, which was created just last week. The GOP Platform Caucus speaks only for those members who have joined; it does not speak for the entire 72-member House Republican Caucus. The idea of identifying and detaining non-English speaking students in our public schools has never been considered by the House Republican Caucus since I have been a member of the House of Representatives. Furthermore, the United States Supreme Court has already ruled upon this matter.”
