Republicans Have Voted Against Police Funding
It is not just the additional police funding that Rep. Swalwell pointed out. Republicans have also voted against funding for police to fight gun crime.
Republicans can’t seem to comprehend that drugs being seized on the border is a good thing. It means that law enforcement is keeping illegal narcotics from getting into the country.
The GOP seems to think that it is Joe Biden’s fault that people are trying to smuggle drugs into the country.
As Rep. Swalwell pointed out, it is the Republican Party that has tried to defund law enforcement to prevent them from being able to effectively do their jobs.
Imagine how much more effective law enforcement could be if Republicans stopped voting against their funding.
