EXCLUSIVE: Decrying the nation's crime spike, surge in illegal immigrants and lax criminal justice policies, Republican senators are calling on the Biden administration to work with them on developing a strategy to "combat the violent crime epidemic within the country."
Sen. Bill Cassidy, R-La., is expected to introduce a resolution Monday with his Republican colleagues that outlines the wave of crime in America and links the uptick to an open southern border, progressive prosecutors declining to charge violent offenders, and certain bail reform policies that let "dangerous criminals" back on the streets.
"Rising violent crime destroys families and should be combated by criminal justice systems that prosecute the offenders as offenders, and not as victims," the resolution, first obtained by Fox News Digital, reads.
Murders across the nation spiked by nearly 30% in 2020 compared to the year prior, according to FBI data released in September, marking the largest single-year increase in killings since the agency began tracking the crimes. Among Black Americans, the number of deaths spiked by more than 32% compared to 2019.
