Sen. John Cornyn along with cosponsors Sen. Ted Cruz and Sen. Thom Tillis, recently introduced the Back the Blue Act, a bill that would increase penalties against violent criminals who intentionally target law enforcement officers, provide new tools to help law enforcement protect themselves, and open up grant funding to strengthen relationships between law enforcement and their communities.

“Law enforcement officers selflessly put their lives on the line every day to protect our communities, and in return they deserve our unparalleled support for the irreplaceable role they serve,” Cornyn said. “The Back the Blue Act sends a clear message that our criminal justice system simply will not tolerate those who viciously and deliberately target our law enforcement. As our country continues to grieve following the tragedy in Dallas, we must come together in support of those who risk everything to keep us safe.”
