Far-Left Democrat ‘Squad’ Rep. Rashida Tlaib Grilled Over Bill That Would Empty Federal Prisons in 10 Years

Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., revealed in a new interview, perhaps unwittingly, that she doesn’t necessarily support the details in a bill she endorsed last year that would abolish federal prisons over the course of 10 years, admitting that there are some people who legitimately belong behind bars. During an interview Monday with Axios reporter Jonathan Swan, Tlaib was pressed on her support for the BREATHE Act, which calls for the Department of Justice and the Department of Health and Human Services to create a “roadmap for prison abolition,” including the “full decarceration of federal detention facilities within 10 years” and “a moratorium on all new federal prison, jail, immigrant and youth detention construction.”
