Lawmakers, veterans and community leaders plan to hold a news conference Thursday to call on a man to remove a display of poster-size swastikas outside his Sacramento home.

The swastikas replace stars in one American flag and two Israeli flags. There's also a Palestinian flag and a statue made of wood of a figure raising its arms and dressed in army green.

The display also includes Christmas lights.

Sacramento police say there are no reportable crimes being committed.

Democratic Senator Marty Block is holding a news conference today to call on the house owner to voluntarily remove the swastikas.

He says it is an insult to the memory of thousands of American soldiers who died fighting Nazis and the millions who died in concentration camps.
