GOP Senators Filibuster Domestic Terrorism Prevention Act

HeadlineMay 27, 2022

On Capitol Hill, Senate Republicans used the threat of a filibuster Thursday to block a bill to combat neo-Nazi and white supremacist violence. Forty-seven Republicans voted against beginning debate on the Domestic Terrorism Prevention Act, which would create domestic terrorism offices within the FBI and the Departments of Justice and Homeland Security. This comes less than two weeks after a white supremacist gunman killed 10 Black people at a grocery store in a predominantly African American neighborhood of Buffalo, New York.
