Following President Donald Trump’s executive order to protect monuments in the United States, three Arizona Republican Congress members sponsored a bill with similar language that was introduced Thursday.

“The ongoing violence in our nation is abhorrent and the deliberate destruction of our nation’s history cannot be tolerated,” Congresswoman Debbie Lesko said in a statement.

“The president took decisive action to protect our nation’s monuments, memorials, and statues, and this legislation will build upon that action to give its provisions the full strength of law.”

Trump’s order set a priority in following a section of the United States Code that authorizes up to 10 years in prison for the vandalization of federal property.
