“The reckless policies coming out of this White House, and the Democratic Party as a whole, have put you and your families in grave danger,” Rep. Brian Babin (R-Texas) warned in a House floor speech Tuesday.

"Bad policies lead to bad consequences," Babin said, denouncing the anti-law enforcement measures instituted by Democrats:

“It’s not hard to see where the left’s demonization of law enforcement and the decision to gut police department funding has gotten us.

“Thanks to the Democrats, we are now in the midst of a crime wave with record high homicide rates in more than a dozen major cities across this great country of ours. The city of Chicago alone saw at least eight hundred homicides in 2021 – a number that we haven’t seen in decades.

“Bad policies lead to bad consequences. And, folks, we are living these in technicolor.

“More than a hundred of brave police officers were shot in ambush-style attacks last year. Meanwhile, we’ve seen violent criminals released into our neighborhoods to commit more violent crimes.“

Babin gave the example of how criminals charged with capital murder were released on bond and went on to kill again in one Texas county last year:

“In Harris County, 113 criminals were granted bond after capital murder charges in 2021. Yes, you heard that right: capital murder charges. Numerous Harris County citizens have been murdered by repeat criminals out on bail – murders which, tragically, could have been avoided.”

“Innocent Americans are being hurt and killed by this foolhardy Democrat policy,” Rep. Babin warned.
