^^^^ jkp1187, I don't see it either.

JustThisGuy- you say this:
A new bill in Congress seems to make it a federal crime to conduct a protest in the presence of certain federal employees, even if you did not know they were present.
(emphasis mine)

This bill says this:
...the term `restricted buildings or grounds' means any posted, cordoned off, or otherwise restricted area...
(emphasis mine)

It seems to me that the absence of clearly visible signage, cordons, or other indications that the person is present would be an affirmative defense to prosecution under this statute.
