Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas told CBS’ Face the Nation Margaret Brennan that the country is facing a “heightened threat environment”. Shayna Greene noted that protests at Supreme Court justice’s houses and recent demonstrations by white supremacist groups are ‘safety concerns’.
Mayorkas said on “Face the Nation”: “We are very mindful that the Supreme Court’s decision in reversing and overturning Roe v. Wade has really heightened the threat environment, and we have deployed resources to ensure the safety and security of the Supreme Court and the justices” including other staff members. We do not condone violence, and law enforcement will and has responded to acts of violence when people do not honor their freedom to protest peacefully, but instead violate the laws of our country and the states within it. I have said, and this has been echoed by the director of the FBI, that domestic violent extremism is one of the greatest terrorism-related threats that we face in the homeland today”.
