Attorney General Merrick B. Garland Statement on the Senate’s Vote on the Reauthorization and Reform of Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act Section 702

Office of Public Affairs

The Justice Department issued the following statement from Attorney General Merrick B. Garland on the Senate’s vote on the reauthorization and reform of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act Section 702:

“Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act is indispensable to the Justice Department’s work to protect the American people from terrorist, nation-state, cyber, and other threats.  

“This reauthorization of Section 702 gives the United States the authority to continue to collect foreign intelligence information about non-U.S. persons located outside the United States, while at the same time codifying important reforms the Justice Department has adopted to ensure the protection of Americans’ privacy and civil liberties.  

“In today’s heightened global threat environment, the Justice Department will continue to use Section 702 to ensure that our efforts to keep our country safe are informed by the most valuable and timely intelligence, as we continue to uphold our commitment to protect the rights of all Americans.”
