Illinois Congressman Joe Walsh is among those who oppose most plans to raise the debt limit.

On Saturday, supporters of the group Catholics United protested outside his Fox Lake office, asking that he not allow the country to default on its financial obligations.

They also delivered a letter asking him to honor all children, including his own.

This week it was reported that Walsh's ex-wife is suing him for more than $100,000 in child support. On Saturday, a district director for Walsh called it a private matter.

As for the protest, another spokesperson said the congressman respects everyone's right to have their voice heard.
