(NewsReady.com) – The Left has been talking about defunding the police for weeks now. There’s a lot of back and forth within the Democratic party about what that actually means, but there’s no doubt it’ll hurt police funding. Now, two congresswomen are taking it a step further.
On July 7, far-Left “Squad” members Reps. Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) unveiled the BREATHE Act to give reparations to Black people and those allegedly hurt by the criminal justice system.
We must invest in a new vision of public safety.
Today, I am proud to join the calls coming out of one of the largest movements for justice that my district and our country have ever seen to say unapologetically:

They also want to defund police departments across the country. The money ripped away from law enforcement will supposedly fund housing, health care, and education programs.
The legislation, which they’ve not actually introduced, eliminates funding for the Department of Defense (DOD) program that gives police departments military equipment. ICE initiatives are also on their chopping block.
Not to state the obvious, but eliminating funding for ICE and programs that provide police with equipment will make everyone less safe.
This wish list would have wide-ranging implications for the American people and they wouldn’t be positive changes. Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem as though the congresswomen care much.
