This new, far-reaching piece of legislation would effectively change the very nature of our nation.
While its stated goal is to “overhaul the criminal justice system,” it will make radical changes to huge parts of our government.
Be assured, this new bill, if passed, will bring utter chaos and destruction to our nation.
Most everyone – except for the most hardened (and blind) law-and-order advocates – agrees that our criminal justice system needs major fixing.
The hard part is getting everyone to agree on just what actions to take without upending the nation in the process.
But, not wanting to wait around, ‘Squad’ members Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) and Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) are pushing for a “reform” measure they call the “BREATHE Act.”
And this legislation contains so many radical leftist proposals, it’s hard to keep track.
The proposal was drafted in partnership with the Movement for Black Lives and purports to overhaul the entire U.S. criminal justice system.
The legislation, as introduced, does everything from defunding the police, to granting unfettered voting rights, abolishing ICE, removing laws that criminalize illegal border crossings, and of course, establishing a commission tasked with designating reparations.
An overview of the radical legislation also devotes an entire section to ensuring a “democratic, fair, and secure voting processes that are free from racial discrimination and voter suppression in every State.”
It also includes a call that incentivizes states to pass election laws that – get this – expands voting access and allows “local and State resident voting for undocumented people.”
That’s right. Full voting rights for non-citizens.
But not just non-citizens. The legislation also proposes “enfranchising all formerly and presently incarcerated people in federal elections.” So criminals – no matter what their crimes – get to vote too.
The bill also calls for “full and free access” to a “lifetime of education for undocumented people.” That’s right, free education for all illegal immigrants.
But wait! There’s more!
The proposal includes a federal jobs program that specifically takes your taxpayer dollars and gives them to “the most economically disadvantaged individuals, including groups that disproportionately include Black cis- and trans women, formerly incarcerated people, undocumented people and disabled people.”
So, it seems defunding the police is not enough for these radical leftists. They want to unravel the very fabric of our republic and end free and fair elections forever more.
One can only hope the sane members of Congress will finally say enough and stop this Marxist proposal. But that may be asking too much in today’s current climate.
