Yvette Diane Clarke (born November 21, 1964) is the Democratic Party representative from New York's 9th congressional district in the U.S. House of Representatives. Clarke is a member of the totalitarian-oriented Congressional Progressive Caucus and is a co-sponsor of the communist Green New Deal and Medicare for All bills.
In the 2020 Democratic primaries Clarke was accused of darkening the skin of primary challenger Adem Bunkeddeko in a mailing:
"As Democrats, we are supposed to be the party of equality, truth, and facts. But instead, Ms. Clarke puts out a racist mailer that clearly darkens my skin. This is despicable. She needs to apologize to me and every single one of her constituents."
On July 12, 2018 Rep. Mark Pocan (D–Wis.) introduced H.R. 6361, in the House to abolish ICE. Eight House Democrats signed on as cosponsors: Pramila Jayapal and D. Adam Smith of Washington; Adriano Espaillat, José Serrano, Nydia Velázquez, and Yvette Clarke, all from New York; Earl Blumenauer of Oregon; and James McGovern of Massachusetts. Sens. Elizabeth Warren (D–Mass.), Kirsten Gillibrand (D–N.Y.), Bernie Sanders (I–Vt.), New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, and other Democrats all rallied behind the "Abolish ICE" banner.
