WASHINGTON, DC — Representative Chip Roy issued the following statement after his bill, the Illegitimate Court Counteraction Act (H.R. 8282), passed in the House:

“I am pleased that today the House passed H.R. 8282 — a bill I introduced with Representative Mast, Conference Chairwoman Stefanik, and others — to sanction the ICC if they attempt to investigate, arrest, detain, or prosecute Americans or our allies.

This sends a strong message to the ICC that we will not tolerate their outrageous attacks on Israel. But let’s be clear, this isn’t just about Israel, this is about ensuring that our nation’s sovereignty is protected, as well as our servicemembers. Absent decisive leadership at the White House, Congress must stand in the breach defending our allies and our sovereignty.

I am grateful for the support of the Republicans and Democrats who voted for this bill, as well as Speaker Johnson and Chairman McCaul’s critical help in getting legislation to the House floor and over the finish line. Additionally, I want to thank Senator Cotton for his strong leadership on the Senate side and look forward to working with him and others to put this on the President’s desk.”
