These 27 Democrats Voted Against Enhanced Security For Supreme Court Justices

The House passed a bill Tuesday to increase security for Supreme Court justices’ immediate families, with 27 Democrats voting against it, less than a week after a man was arrested for allegedly plotting to kill Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

The House voted 396-27, approving a measure that had already been passed by unanimous consent in the Senate in May just days after a leaked draft Supreme Court opinion suggested it intends to overturn Roe v. Wade.

All those who voted “no” on the Supreme Court Police Parity Act on Tuesday were Democrats. They are:

Rep. Joyce Beatty, D-Ohio

Rep. Jamaal Bowman, D-N.Y.

Rep. Cori Bush, D-Mo.

Rep. Veronica Escobar, D-Texas

Rep. Adriano Espaillat, D-N.Y.

Rep. Chuy Garcia, D-Ill.

Rep. Sylvia Garcia, D-Texas

Rep. Joshua Gottheimer, D-N.J.

Rep. Raúl Grijalva, D-Ariz.

Rep. Steven Horsford, D-Nev.

Rep. Pramila Jayapal, D-Wash.

Rep. Brenda Lawrence, D-Mich.

Rep. Barbara Lee, D-Calif.

Rep. Tom Malinowski, D-N.J.

Rep. Marie Newman, D-Ill.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y.

Rep. Bill Pascrell, D-N.J.

Rep. Donald Payne, D-N.J.

Rep. Ed Perlmutter, D-Colo.

Rep. Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass.

Rep. Mikie Sherrill, D-N.J.

Rep. Albio Sires, D-N.J.

Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich.

Rep. Norma Torres, D-Calif.,

Rep. Nydia Velazquez, D-N.Y.

Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif.

Rep. Bonnie Watson Coleman, D-N.J.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez gloated in an Instagram video on Saturday about initially blocking the bill.

“I wake up this morning and I start to hear murmurs that there is going to be an attempt to pass the Supreme Court supplemental protection bill the day after gun safety legislation for schools and kids and people is stalled,” she said in the video.

“Oh, so we can pass protections for us and here easily, right? But we can’t pass protections for everyday people?” she continued. “I think not.”
