My contempt for Nancy Pelosi is so strong. I loathe her…more than Schiff, more than Obama, more than Hillary. She is THE WORST.
Nancy Pelosi is pushing for another coronavirus bill that would mandate the release of many convicts and illegal aliens.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) latest Chinese coronavirus relief package includes a mandate that federal inmates, as well as local convicts and illegal aliens, be released from jail so long as a court considers them “non-violent” offenders.
Pelosi’s plan would order the release of federal prisoners, illegal aliens in federal immigration detention facilities, and local convicts if they are considered by the courts and judicial officers to not be a threat to the community.
A summary of the legislation notes:
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. [Emphasis added]
Wow, that list is pretty all encompassing. Release the young, the old, the non-violent. Basically, forget probation too.

Let’s just shutdown the federal prison system because: COVID.
Of course, Pelosi wants to pour lots of money into this agenda. Why not? They seem to think money grows on trees.
Provides $600 million in funding to address the COVID-19 crisis in state and local prisons and jails, including $500 million to states and local governments that operate correctional facilities to provide testing and treatment of COVID-19 for incarcerated individuals by creating two grant programs—one focused on the release of low-risk individuals who are currently incarcerated and another aimed at reducing COVID-19 exposure for those individuals who are arrested; $75 million in funding to a new grant program to encourage states and localities to adopt practices that promote juvenile safety and rehabilitation without unnecessarily exposing youth to incarceration during this crisis; and $25 million for a grant program for state and local governments that operate correctional facilities for rapid testing of inmates who are leaving correctional custody. [Emphasis added]
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. [Emphasis added]
Pelosi and company never miss an opportunity to undermine ICE and our borders. The Democrats never waste a crisis.
Pelosi’s plan goes on to suck even harder. Under the plan, judges can reduce the sentence of felons and grant “compassionate release.”
Instead, how about we have compassion upon the American people and the victims of these criminals? Show compassion to law-abiding folks and keep criminals in prison. A simple Google search reveals the risk we run of increased crime by released criminals. Who would’ve thunk?
For the life of me, I cannot understand the reasoning behind this for Democrats. Why are they so focused on helping criminals? What do they gain from this? Maybe some people think it makes them compassionate. I think it just makes them reckless, naïve, and stupid.
Finally, can I just say I am DONE with the relief packages? Done. The only “relief package” I’m interested in at this point is opening the economy back up. How’s that for relief?
If Republicans keep approving these relief packages, they will eventually cave to these ridiculous demands and vote-by-mail. Before we even know it, the entire liberal agenda will be instituted under President Trump.
House Democrats just released an 1,800-page liberal wishlist that was crafted behind closed doors and includes bailouts for blue states and giveaways for billionaires. This spectacle has 𝐧𝐨 𝐜𝐡𝐚𝐧𝐜𝐞 of becoming law.
What a waste of taxpayer time.

The sheer amount of bullsh*t Nancy Pelosi can generate in 24 hours is truly staggering.

Nancy Pelosi is wasting her time crafting a liberal wishlist instead of working with us to give businesses the confidence they need to reopen.
