U.S. Sen. Mike Braun (R), a member of the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions, joins seven of his Republican Senate colleagues in a letter to U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding that General Garland “immediately and publicly” rescind an October 4 U.S. Department of Justice memorandum that they say targets parents who have spoken out at school board meetings in their local communities. The letter also demands that AG Garland comply with the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests made by 14 states that seek Justice Department documents that led to the memorandum. The senators write, “Parents have the right to direct the upbringing and education of their children. That does not make them terrorists. For you and your Department to claim otherwise is a gross misuse of your authority as the nation’s highest law enforcement official. Your October 4 memorandum must be immediately rescinded.”
