Wheaton, IL —U.S. Representative Peter J. Roskam released the following statement on the passing of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia:

"Today we mourn the passing of one of the greatest justices in the history of our Supreme Court. During Scalia's three decades on the bench, he defended our Constitution and protected our freedoms with fervor and brilliance. There will be a time to discuss the policy and political implications. Now is not that time. My prayers are with Mrs. Scalia and their family.”
