Redirect Unused COVID-19 Funding to Law Enforcement

Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) said on Tuesday’s SiriusXM Breitbart News daily with host Alex Marlow that her law and order restoration bill, co-sponsored with Sen. Bill Hagerty (R-TN), would divert unspent federal funds ostensibly earmarked to fight COVID-19 to law enforcement.

The Law and Order Restoration Act will “mobilize more resources for law enforcement officials,” Blackburn said. She said some of the funds will be spent on “equipment, tools and other items” for drug task forces dealing with these crimes, which are essentially directly related to the border [and] Drugs making it onto our streets, dealing with gangs, traffickers, the drug dealers, [and] sex traffickers coming into our community.”

She continued, “Also, we have money that’s left over with these communities because of COVID. So let’s allow them to use these funds to pay officers more fairly and hire more officers so they can help keep these communities safe.”

Blackburn praised Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) for flying migrants to Martha’s Vineyard.

“It’s been pretty effective because all of a sudden you have the elite that has to face what’s happening in all these communities across the country,” she said. “The hypocrisy is amazing to me and the fact that these individuals don’t see that.”

Blackburn observed, “Maybe they put virtue signs on their front lawn – ‘Love All,’ ‘Be Kind,’ ‘Welcome To All’ – but when the going got tough in a community like Martha’s Vineyard, what did they do ? They said, ‘We want to get them out,’ and it took them 48 hours to find someone who would get them out of their community.”

President Joe Biden’s statement that “the pandemic is over” was a misstep, according to the president’s handlers, assessed Blackburn, highlighting Democrats’ hype about the “pandemic” as a pretext for voting by mail, ostensibly as a measure to reduce the virus transmission .

“If you listen [Joe Biden’s] Dealers probably think he misspoke because in order to have mail-in ballots, they need to keep this pandemic going,” Blackburn noted. “I think the White House probably went into cleanup mode when he gave that interview and was like, ‘Oh my God, come on Sunday, we have a problem and we need to get out of it. ‘”
