Stop the Socialists.
The socialists who represent New York City in Congress are calling for Rikers Island to be closed and all 5,000 inmates to be released back onto our streets—no questions asked.
You heard that right. Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Jamaal Bowman, Jerry Nadler, and Nydia Velazquez demanded that everyone in custody be immediately let go, even though most Rikers prisoners have been convicted or charged with serious, violent crimes.
With murder, assault, robbery, and other violent crime rates soaring because of the Defund the Police and anti-law enforcement agenda enacted by liberals in the State Capitol and City Hall, closing Rikers and freeing 5,000 dangerous inmates is the last thing New York City needs.
