National Police Week begins tomorrow as crime across America surges and our police officers are under attack from violent criminals.
America’s crime crisis is the direct result of President Biden and Congressional Democrats’ efforts to demonize and defund our law enforcement, as well as the soft-on-crime policies of Democrats across the country.
As National Police Week begins, House Democrats are showing the American people their true priorities by bringing zero bills to the floor in support of law enforcement.
DEMOCRATS’ CRIME CRISIS:
Rep. Ilhan Omar said “not only do we need to defund, we need to dismantle” Police Departments.
Rep. Cori Bush spent over $70,000 on personal security from January through March of this year. In total, Bush has spent over $300,000 for this election cycle while simultaneously promising to defund the police for the rest of America.
Rep. Bush then doubled down in her support for defunding our police departments on Twitter, and in February, Bush said she would not stop calling for our police departments to be defunded.
In March, Bush called on her progressive colleagues to continue pushing the Defund the Police agenda.
President Biden’s Assistant Attorney General Kristen Clarke supported efforts to “defund the police.”
BOTTOM LINE: Americans are smart—they trust Republicans to handle crime far more than Democrats. House Republicans unequivocally stand with our law enforcement and remain committed to providing them with the funding they need to continue keeping our communities safe.
