She has to be joking…
Nancy Pelosi recently announced her new coronavirus relief package and in the package, there is a mandate for the release of jailed individuals who convicted “non-violent” offenses.
A summary of the package states:
“During a declared national emergency relating to a communicable disease, mandates the release into community supervision of federal prisoners and pretrial detainees who are non-violent and, for instance, pregnant women, juveniles, older prisoners and detainees, and those with certain medical conditions. Modifies probation and supervised release policies to avoid unnecessary in-person contact with probation officers and to reduce the numbers of those supervised and those imprisoned for violations. Mandates the release of non-violent pretrial defendants on their own recognizance.”
“This section requires DHS to review the immigration files of all individuals in the custody of ICE to assess the need for continued detention. Individuals who are not subject to mandatory detention shall be prioritized for release, either on recognizance or into an alternative to detention program, unless the individual is a threat to public safety or national security.”
Many individuals are being released from prisons across U.S. already, and this mandate will cause many more to be released. Does she not understand how dangerous it is to release them?
