After years of calling to “defund the police,” Democrats are now seeing the consequences of their actions firsthand.
According to a report from CBS, “homicides in major cities ticked up in 2021, with a 5% increase from 2020 and a 44% increase over 2019.” And Portland recorded 90 homicides in 2021, shattering the city’s previous high of 66 set more than three decades ago.
But, Kurt Schrader refused to condemn dangerous calls to defund the police.
“Anti-law enforcement politicians like Kurt Schrader are the reason crime has gone through the roof,” said CLF Press Secretary Cally Perkins. “As long as Kurt Schrader remains in Congress, criminals will go free, police will be hampered from doing their jobs and Oregonians will fear for their safety.”
