On Monday, MSNBC analyst Claire McCaskill claimed that Republican-controlled states would soon put into place "vigilanteism" laws that would "empower citizens" to round up people who look foreign, basing her argument on the statement that the Supreme Court needs to be reformed.

In an interview with Deadline: White House, the former Missouri Democrat Senator said that a majority of Supreme Court justices were "in the tank for the right-wing extreme views," according to Fox News.

"There is definitely some reform that is needed at the Supreme Court, I mean you can just start with ethics. They don't have the same rules, Supreme Court justices. You can start with term limits. The American people support term limits for everybody, including Supreme Court justices," McCaskill said, who also argued that the Senate filibuster would also need to be reformed.

"The hypocrisy here is astounding … Every once in a while somebody on the Supreme Court surprises us by making a decision that would not be expected based on the politics of the president who appointed them. I'm afraid those days of surprise are over," McCaskill said.

"I think we know everybody but Roberts is in the tank for the right-wing extreme views," she added.

McCaskill continued on to state that she thought "vigilanteism" laws would become popular in Republican states, and that these states would use extreme measures to combat issues like immigration.

"These red states are going to do vigilantism laws on immigration, and they're going to empower citizens to go out and round up people they think look like foreigners," she said.

"And that's what we're coming to in this in country, and it is incredibly depressing, especially as we're so near a religious holiday that is all about loving other people and accepting the least among us to be part of the larger group," she added.
