AOC: Abolish Prisons
Mike Berg | July 27, 2021

As Democrats struggle to shed their pro-crime image, de facto Speaker Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is calling for the abolition of prisons.

At a rally for Nina Turner in OH-11, Ocasio Cortez said, “I want to abolish our carceral system that’s designed to trap Black and Brown men. I want justice.”

NRCC Comment: “Every vulnerable Democrat who refused to return AOC’s campaign cash should tell voters whether they agree with her proposal to abolish prisons and release convicted criminals into our communities.” – NRCC Spokesman Mike Berg
