COVID: relief bill releases violent criminals from prison

On efforts to craft a new pandemic relief package, Luj n suggested another round of $1,200 direct payments to taxpayers is needed, along with an infusion of federal resources to public schools aimed at reopening classrooms safely. Ronchetti said businesses should have liability protections in coronavirus-related lawsuits. "They shouldn't have to fear frivolous lawsuits," he said. Ronchetti repeatedly said a House economic relief bill would let violent criminals out of prison.

Federal economic relief would free violent criminals

Ronchetti repeatedly said a House economic relief bill would let violent criminals out of prison. Amid questions about the future of civil rights guarantees and racial equality, Ronchetti said policing reforms on the use of force are being derailed by partisanship, citing languishing proposals from Black GOP Sen. Tim Scott of South Carolina.

Welcomes federal intervention against violent crime

While Luj n touted his efforts on bills generating hundreds of millions of dollars for local police to help with crime-fighting efforts, Ronchetti said he welcomes federal authorities stepping into crime-ridden cities. "Because the job isn't being done within the state," Ronchetti said. ". Someone has to tackle violent crime."

Strongly opposes efforts to defund the police

Support for Law Enforcement: We must fight racism and police brutality, but defunding the police is a reckless and irresponsible scheme that will make our communities less safe. The vast majority of police officers are good people risking their lives to protect our community and have earned our support. Mark strongly opposes efforts to defund the police. Mark will fight to bring more federal help back to New Mexico to fight crime and make our streets safer.

Federal laws have teeth; we will go after criminals

Mark believes that from the federal-level down to our smallest towns more must be done to get our crime epidemic under control. Mark will work tirelessly with the Department of Justice to get more federal task force resources and additional assistant US Attorneys to put criminals away. It will take years to reform the laws that let criminals out quickly on state and local charges. However, federal laws have teeth, and we will go after criminals in a way that will keep them off our streets.

Opposed to defunding the police

Most police officers are good people and I strongly oppose defunding the police. Additionally, our Albuquerque police officers have already adopted many reforms and I am proud to be endorsed by the Albuquerque Police Officers Association. We need federal law enforcement help to keep our streets safe. Our local government and leadership have abdicated the responsibility and let violent crime skyrocket. We need to support our police department and bring in federal help to keep our streets safe.
