Squad-member Rep. Ayanna Pressley called for the drastic restructuring of America’s criminal justice system Thursday; saying the country needs policies that promote “de-carceration” and “human dignity.”

“The People’s #JusticeGuarantee is a complete paradigm shift. Gone are the days that the gov’t criminalizes the marginalized,” posted Pressley on social media.

“The People’s #JusticeGuarantee transforms the criminal legal system: Dramatically reducing jail & prison populations, Eliminating wealth-based discrimination & corporate profiteering, Investing in the communities destabilized by mass incarceration,” she added.

“Our criminal INjustice system must prioritize early intervention, rehabilitation over incarceration & a clear pathway for formerly incarcerated individuals to reintegrate into society. These changes can only be achieved by working in partnership w/ community,” writes Pressley.

posted by Hannity Staff - 3.07.19

Democratic Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley introduced legislation this week that would lower the federal voting age to just 16-year-old; saying “young people are at the forefront of some of our most existential crises.”

Pressley was speaking with her fellow lawmakers Tuesday when she commented on her proposal; claiming the new age requirement would help give “young people” the “opportunity to exercise their rights.”

“Young people are leading the way, which has bene the case for every social movement throughout our history. They are organizing and mobilizing and calling us to action,” said the Congresswoman.

“Young people are at the forefront of some of our most existential crises,” Pressley added. “The time has come. Our young people deserve to have the opportunity to exercise their right to vote.”

Just days after far-left activists threatened to “stab” Mitch McConnell outside his home, Squad Member Rep. Ayanna Pressley viciously accused the GOP leader of being “the common enemy.”

Pressley was speaking with the Daily Show’s Trevor Noah when she was asked to comment on the Democratic Party’s response to a series of mass shootings in the United States.

“Guns are the common factor, and the common enemy in all of this is Mitch McConnell. So please give him a call and say that I sent you,” said Rep. Pressley.

President Trump called-out Pressley’s ‘Squad’ on social media weeks ago; labeling the four Congresswomen -Tlaib, Ocasio-Cortez, Omar, and Pressley- a “nightmare for America.”

“In 2016 I almost won Minnesota. In 2020, because of America hating anti-Semite Rep. Omar, & the fact that Minnesota is having its best economic year ever, I will win the State! ‘We are going to be a nightmare to the President,’ she say. No, AOC Plus 3 are a Nightmare for America!” posted Trump on Twitter.

“The ‘Squad’ is a very Racist group of troublemakers who are young, inexperienced, and not very smart. They are pulling the once great Democrat Party far left, and were against humanitarian aid at the Border…And are now against ICE and Homeland Security. So bad for our Country!” posted the President.
