U.S. Marshals Service Requests Fewer Security Officers in FY19 Budget
The U.S. Marshals Service, which protects Supreme Court justices by request when they travel domestically outside of Washington, D.C., has asked for five fewer judicial and courthouse security personnel in their recently released FY19 budget.
As we’ve said before, the public should be confident that the justices are well-protected both inside their building and when they travel, so we were hoping for the opposite outcome.
USMS is, on the other hand, requesting an additional 40 deputy marshals for the next fiscal year to carry out “additional immigration enforcement.”
