“Are you comfortable with the protests that we saw outside the homes of Supreme Court justices over the weekend?”
a reporter asked Schumer at a press conference.
My house — there’s protests three, four times a week outside my house.
The American way to peacefully protest is OK,” Schumer said before checking his ringing phone, noting his wife was calling him.
He then reemphasized his earlier point that as long as the protesters remain peaceful, it’s all right that they demonstrate outside the justices’ homes.
The news comes as the Senate on Monday passed a bill Monday by unanimous consent that would extend security protections to the immediate family members of Supreme Court justices.
If the draft is reflected in the court’s final ruling, it would effectively end abortion protections at the federal level. »
