WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Congressman Darrell Issa (CA-50) issued the following statement:

“The arrest of a man who made violent threats against Justice Kavanaugh and was arrested outside his home with a gun and other deadly weapons is a stark reminder of how the reckless rhetoric of this Administration and Democrat partisans can incite others to violence. Recall that President Biden encouraged illegal protests outside the homes of justices and that Sen. Schumer said he was comfortable with repeated incidents of harassment of justices and their families. Now we know what they have wrought.

“Speaker Pelosi also continues to block my legislation – which already overwhelmingly passed the Senate — to provide new security for justices and their families. She should at once let the House vote its conscience.
“It’s time for Democrats to finally condemn the hate they have brought to the front doors of justices and their families and provide them the protection they so obviously need.”


Issa Introduces Bipartisan, Bicameral Legislation to Extend Police Protection to the Families of Supreme Court Justices

May 10, 2022

WASHINGTON DC – Today, Congressman Darrell Issa (CA-50) issued the following statement after introducing the Supreme Court Police Parity Act¸ a bill which would allow the Supreme Court of the United States Police to provide the families of Supreme Court Justices with around-the-clock security protection. Congressman Lou Correa (CA-46) is co-authoring the bill in the House, while the Senate version of the bill was introduced by Senator John Cornyn (R-TX).
“What we are witnessing is the most significant threat in our history to the sanctity of the Supreme Court and the safety of its Justices,” said Rep. Issa. “By acting now, we send an unmistakable message to the mob: Your campaign of harassment and intimidation will not stand.”

“The events of the past week have intensified the focus on Supreme Court Justices’ families, who are unfortunately facing threats to their safety in today’s increasingly polarized political climate,” said Sen. Cornyn. “We must act to ensure Justices and their families are protected from those who wish to cause them harm by extending Supreme Court police security to family members.”

“The future of our democracy, three branches of government, separation of powers, depends on an independent judicial branch,” said Rep. Correa. “Our Supreme Court justices should be safeguarded from political persecution and intimidation. We must allow judges to carry out their tasks without fearing for their safety. Supreme Court justices and their staff must be protected.  The right to free speech is guaranteed by our constitution – violence and threats are not. The third branch of our government, the Supreme Court, must be independent, on the job and at home.”
