Democrat Reps. Rashida Tlaib (Mich.) and Cori Bush (Mo.), both members of the far-left “Squad,” were the two sole House lawmakers to vote against a resolution to honor police officers killed in the line of duty.

The resolution which recognized National Police Week passed 413-2 on Monday despite protests from the two twisted dems who insisted that the resolution to recognize fallen police officers pushed a “false narrative.”

On Tuesday, Tlaib and Bush said that the proposed resolution is “not a referendum on support for the safety of first responders,” but rather “a document intended to advance Republicans’ false narrative around supporting law enforcement and gaslighting the public about where they stand.”

In a joint statement, they added, “Let us be clear: the health and safety of every one of our community members – including our first responders – is a top priority for us.”

The resolution that Tlaib and Bush stood firmly against was meant to honor “the 556 law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty, including 224 officers killed in 2022, as well as 332 officers killed in previous years whose stories were recovered during 2022.”

The resolution offered “unwavering support” for law enforcement officers, extended “condolences and solemn appreciation” to the loved ones of fallen officers, and served as a promise that the House of Representatives would recognize fallen law enforcement personnel as heroes.

Rep. Troy Nehls (R-Texas) expressed his confusion over the ‘Squad’ members’ opposition to the resolution on Twitter, asking, “Why did Cori Bush and Rashida Tlaib just vote  a simple resolution to honor law enforcement officers during National Police Week?”

Just weeks prior to this vote, the “Squad,” which is made up of other far-left House members including Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (N.Y.), Ilhan Omar (Minn.), and Ayanna Pressley (Mass.), spend $1 million on private security to push their agenda of defunding the police.
