House and Senate Democrats Using Obama 21st Century Cures Act on Police Reform

June 8, 2020

President Trump held a meeting today with law enforcement declaring that 99% of police officers are good people, but we need to weed out the bad apples. House and Senate Democrats have created new legislation focusing on police reform, including curbing racial profile, changing police practices, a federal anti-lynching law, and accountability of law enforcement.

April Ryan speaks with Valerie Jarrett who says Congress and Senate are using President Obama’s playbook to make recommendations to lead to a healthier relationship between police and the Black community.
