    U.S. Senator Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) went to the Senate Floor today to
    call for unanimous consent to pass his PROTECT Act of 2022, which
    protects children from sexual exploitation by enhancing the
    penalties for possessing child pornography and preventing judges
    from sentencing offenders below federal guidelines. Senator Dick
    Durbin (D-Ill.) objected and blocked the bill from passing.

    Senator Durbin, with support from Senators Feinstein (D-Calif.) and
    Schumer (D-N.Y.), passed similar legislation in 2003. The PROTECT
    Act worked. But the Supreme Court gutted it in 2005, in a
    controversial 5-4 decision called United States v. Booker, allowing
    judges like Ketanji Brown Jackson the ability to impose lenient
    sentences on child porn offenders.
