posted by Hannity Staff - 11.26.21

Radical Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez confused millions of New Yorkers this week when she claimed prosecutors in her home city were using “excessive bail” procedures for people in prison.

Their letter warned that “[i]f these conditions are not addressed, federal intervention may be necessary to protect detainees from additional harm.”
