Marsha Blackburn Report: Protecting the Symbols of Our Nation

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – Statues and other symbols of our history serve as a reminder of how far we have come as a nation. As Americans, we have a responsibility to talk about our successes, our mistakes, and what we want our future to look like.

The First Amendment protects our right to peacefully protest, and to petition the government for change.

The violent acts committed by the professional agitators encouraging mob rule and anarchy, however, are crimes.

Lamar Alexander: Making the case for preserving Andrew Jackson statue

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – This week, Senate Democrats voted to block consideration of U.S. Senator Tim Scott, of South Carolina’s, police reform legislation. I voted to begin debate on Senator Scott’s proposal, which I co-sponsored, because it will make police officers more accountable, encourage departments to ban chokeholds and adopt best practices, provide better training to police officers, and make lynching a federal crime. 

Congress should have a serious debate and consider amendments on these important issues, and it is a shame that Senate Democrats won’t allow the Senate to even begin to consider this legislation.
