FNC: “Top House Republicans have put together a future-forward plan to push law enforcement friendly legislation, in anticipation that the GOP will become the majority party in Congress after the November midterm elections.
Last year, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., established the American Security Task Force, which is headed by House Committee on Homeland Security ranking member John Katko, R-N.Y. Katko met with law enforcement on the front lines of the crime and border crises over the last year as part of the task force, and developed solutions that Republicans plan to implement when back in power.
The final list of four priorities, exclusively shared with Fox News Digital, include ensuring resourcing and funding for law enforcement, addressing and tackling recruitment issues, taking action to stop violence against officers and penalizing ‘progressive’ prosecutors.”
“These pillars we came up with are trying to attack the defunding issue, but also the retention issue, and the disrespect to law enforcement issue, which is really terrible and targeted,” Katko said.
“These progressives prosecutors are just not prosecuting cases. They’re adding to the attrition rates, adding to the danger, they’re adding to the animus against police officers. They’re adding to the air of lawlessness for bad guys who think they can act with impunity because there are no consequences.
“A lot of them get federal dollars…We are not going to fund progressive prosecutors’ ability to become apologists for criminals anymore. We’re just not going to do it,” continued Katko.
After a tour of police departments Katko commented, “It really was jaw dropping… never have I seen law enforcement in such a bad state. From a morale standpoint. From a statistical standpoint. And the picture seems quite bleak going forward.
“Law enforcement are very, very supportive of what we want to do,” Katko told press. Republicans didn’t just study statistics they went to “law enforcement representatives, unions, front line people, not to bulls— politicians” to devise a plan.
“The Democratic Party across this country caused these problems. And the American people are not stupid, they’re not going to buy what the administration’s laying out,” said Katko.

The Major Cities Chiefs Association (MCCA), endorsed the proposed Republican legislation. “The MCCA thanks Leader McCarthy, Rep. Katko, Rep. Rutherford, and the entire American Security Task Force for developing this framework that supports law enforcement. The MCCA participated in several of the roundtables that helped inform this work, and it is heartening to see our feedback incorporated into the final product. The legislation that this framework leads to will help address the numerous challenges facing our brave law enforcement officers,” MCCA Executive Director Laura Cooper told media.
Katko gets the last word. “If the administration was truly sincere and really wanted to fix this problem, they’d call leadership in the Republican Party and sit down with them. They haven’t, I haven’t received one phone call from anybody in the Biden administration, and they know I’m the head of this task force. They’re not interested in trying to find solutions, they’re interested in trying to find political solutions. And that’s really unfortunate,” Katko told press.
