Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s campaign is calling for Secret Service protection after an intruder was arrested twice at his home.

The intruder, Jonathan Macht, had asked to see Kennedy and returned to his house after being released.

Kennedy’s campaign has sent a letter to Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas requesting Secret Service protection, citing concerns about Macht and others who pose a potential security risk. (Trending: It’s Time For Donald Trump To Drop Out)

The campaign also mentioned a previous incident involving an armed man impersonating a U.S. marshal at a Kennedy event.

“The Los Angeles Police Department said the individual arrested was Jonathan Macht, 28, of Pacific Palisades, California,” according to the New York Post.

“Macht was arrested on suspicion of trespassing. He was issued an emergency protective order after his first visit, and was then charged with violating the order after his second visit,” the Post reported. (Trending: Judge Declines To Recuse From Trump 2024 Ballot Case)

Kennedy’s campaign released a letter sent to Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas that said, “Secret Service is aware that [Macht] has sent hundreds of emails to the candidate, and believes he is being followed by people who intend to kill him.”

Allowing Macht to go free “will mean three people ― all of whom have made dangerous approaches to the candidate ― will be at large and able to continue their efforts to encounter the candidate.”

“Given all that is known, please reconsider your decision to refuse Secret Service protection to presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr, and allow protection to commence as soon as possible. As the law intends, the Secret Service can help protect the candidate and the electoral process, while also reducing risk to others in the candidate’s environment, including members of the general public,” the letter said.

“Every presidential administration for 55 years has afforded early protection to candidates who requested it. The Biden administration is the sole outlier,“ the release said.

“​​Although it is a well-known historical fact, apparently, in your case, it bears repeating: Mr. Kennedy’s uncle, President John F. Kennedy, was assassinated. Mr. Kennedy’s father, Senator Robert F. Kennedy, was assassinated while a presidential candidate,” the letter said.

Kennedy’s campaign manager, Dennis Kucinich, issued an open letter to President Joe Biden highlighting the historical assassinations of Kennedy’s uncle and father.
