Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO), has introduced a bill to cut Department of Homeland Security (DHS) grant funding from programs that discriminate against conservative viewpoints.

The bill aims to prevent taxpayer dollars from funding programs countering conservative narratives on topics like COVID-19, vaccination, media bias, immigration, and crime.

This comes after instances where DHS grants were used for initiatives targeting conservative groups.

“The Biden Administration has time and again demonstrated its willingness to weaponize its power against conservatives,” Hawley stated.

“My bill simply bars Secretary Mayorkas from funneling taxpayer dollars to programs dedicated to targeting this Administration’s political opponents.”

“This is an outrageous use of federal funds and abuse of power,” Hawley wrote. “All these funds should be clawed back by the federal government immediately, and anyone involved in making this grant should be fired.”

The DHS maintains that it does not discriminate against any individual or organization for exercising their constitutional rights and is committed to respecting freedom of speech and civil liberties.

A DHS spokesperson stated that the department “does not profile, target, or discriminate against any individual or organization for exercising their constitutional rights. Our mission is to safeguard the American people and when individual expression is connected to an intent to commit violent acts, we are obligated to take action. We are committed to respecting and protecting Americans’ freedom of speech, civil rights, civil liberties, and privacy.”
