How to use protection in a sentence?

  1. Mississippi Governor Phil Bryant:

    Churches deserve protection from those who would harm worshippers.

  2. Sebastian Kurz:

    There has been a lot of movement in recent years. For example, the German position is now much closer to ours than it was two years ago, many states have moved in the right direction. Now we need a focus on proper protection of the external borders of the EU and not just the constant debate about the distribution of refugees within the European Union by quotas.

  3. Chris Sanders:

    Court challenges are absolutely necessary, and we also need to engage legislators in every part of Tennessee so that voices for equal protection are loud and clear.

  4. De Filippi:

    Faced with thousands of desperate people fleeing wars and crises, Europe has closed borders, forcing people in search of protection to risk their lives and die at sea.

  5. Kristen Clarke:

    Someone that is sensitive to that understands why the federal government and Justice Department needs to intervene. ... So there's a sensitivity practice and an experienced practice that people of color could bring in that was totally absent in the last four years. i think this is one of the most important decisions that Joe Biden will have to make finding the right attorney general, who can restore a commitment to equal justice under law for all, who can make protection of racial justice and civil rights a top priority. These are incredibly important principles and values of the country needs right now in its next attorney general, so I'm glad that the next administration isn't racing to announce a decision and being really thoughtful and careful in deciding who they put forth for this important position.
