Democratic ‘Squad’ Members Tlaib, Pressley Introduce Bill to Defund the Police and Give Reparations

The 'squad' pushes a proposal to defund the police and provide reparations to African-Americans.

With all the chaos going on around the country, we haven’t heard quite as much from the infamous Democratic ‘Squad’ lately.

Unfortunately for us, that all changed on Tuesday.

‘Squad’ members Rashida Tlaib and Ayanna Pressley introduced a new proposal on Tuesday that would both defund the police, and provide reparations for African-Americans.

Two congressional "squad" members unveiled a wide-ranging proposal Tuesday to defund police departments and establish a reparations program for African Americans and people harmed by the police and the criminal justice system.

Reps. Rashida Tlaib of Michigan and Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts, both Democrats, announced the BREATHE Act via a virtual conference call. Both lawmakers are part of the four-member "squad," a group of female progressive House members that includes Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York and ‎Ilhan Omar of Minnesota.

“We can start to envision through this bill a new version for public safety — a new vision for public safety, one that protects and affirms black lives,” Tlaib said, according to the New York Post.

The legislation has not been introduced. Ocasio-Cortez and Omar were not announced as backers of the proposal.

Under the bill, federal funds to local police and federal agencies would be slashed and diverted to pay for health care, education, environmental housing programs. It would eliminate federal programs and agencies used to finance Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and the controversial Department of Defense 1033 program, which transfers excess military equipment to civilian law enforcement agencies.

It's an ambitious proposal by the squad.

Maybe ambitious is the wrong word...

The squad are making their goals known, as Ilhan Omar has also made clear...

These people are a danger to our country and all Americans deserve to know of their intentions before it's too late.
