“Axios on HBO”: Swan demanding situations Tlaib on emptying federal prisons

5


On “Axios on HBO,” Jonathan Swan challenged Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) at the sweep of a plan for remaining federal prisons that she has recommended, and is supported by way of some criminal-justice activists.

  • “[E]veryone’s like, ‘Oh my God, we’re going to just release everybody.’ That’s not ,” Tlaib stated.
  • Swan interjected that the BREATHE Act “actually says: Release everyone” from federal prisons over 10 years.

Why it issues: While jail reform is a mainstream place throughout the Democratic Party, federal jail abolition which Tlaib has advocated isn’t. These law-and-order problems have come to the middle of political contests all over the rustic as crime charges have risen.

Swan requested to what extent Tlaib has wrestled with doable downsides to the reforms she backs particularly that the federal jail inhabitants comprises unhealthy criminals.

  • Tlaib: “But did you see how many people are mentally ill that are in prison right now?”
  • Swan: “But there are, like, human traffickers.”
  • Tlaib: “Oh, I know. … Look at who’s in prison now … folks that are mentally ill, that have substance-abuse problems … And obviously there’s a process of looking at how can we get away from mass incarceration, and move towards care first.”
