US members of Congress have invited human rights activist Tommy Robinson to speak in Washington DC.

Robinson is an outspoken critic of radical Islam and the Muslim grooming gangs in England.
The liberal media in Great Britain attacks Robinson for speaking out against this modern day horror.
In May, Robinson was arrested for contempt of court while filming outside a Pakistani grooming gang trial in Leeds, as the case was under a reporting ban. In August, the charge was struck down by Lord Chief Justice Burnett and two other judges — but he will now be subjected to a retrial.
The Evening Standard reported:
Tommy Robinson has been invited give an address in Washington by members of US Congress.
The 35-year-old English Defence League founder has been asked to visit the US by American think tank the Middle East Forum (MEF) and the right-wing David Horowitz Freedom Center.
The MEF said on its website that Republican Paul Gosar and six other members of Congress have invited Robinson to speak to the Conservative Opportunity Society in a closed-door event.
However it is not clear if Robinson, whose real name is Stephen Yaxley-Lennon, will be allowed to enter the country.
He is currently on bail after being charged with contempt of court and has a string of previous criminal convictions.
