FreedomWorks Statement in Response to Sen. Braun’s Reforming Qualified Immunity Act

WASHINGTON, D.C. — In response to the introduction of Sen. Mike Braun’s (R-Ind.) Reforming Qualified Immunity Act, Jason Pye, FreedomWorks’ Vice President of Legislative Affairs, commented:

“We’re thrilled to support the Reforming Qualified Immunity Act, introduced by Senator Mike Braun. Qualified immunity is an example of the Supreme Court legislating from the bench, creating a principle that prevents accountability from government officials who deprive individuals of their constitutionally protected liberties.”

“Senator Braun and his staff have answered the call of a nation trying to heal itself. The passion he and his staff have shown to reform qualified immunity is an exhibition in leadership that we need at this critical moment.”
