Representative Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), who is a member of the radical liberal “Squad” led by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, went on Tuesday on MSNBC to demand that many more laws be put in place to ” to affirm once and for all “all that Black Lives Matter is. “
She added that lawmakers who do this must go beyond the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act.
“Qualified immunity is an unjust doctrine that has been codified into law after law that has allowed law enforcement agencies to act in calloused disregard for black and brown bodies, regardless of our lives, with no consequences. George Floyd was brutally murdered, ”said Pressley.
“Why is that happend?” She added. “It happened because we need to acknowledge the fact that Black Lives is Matter, because our lives didn’t matter. They have not been rated. There was no humanity, no grace granted or granted to him. Blacks have been dehumanized. “

“As a result, they have been brutalized, measured, profiled, murdered, lynched,” Pressley continued. “So what would that put off? We have a lot to do, beyond an invoice. There has to be accountability and we have to regulate that by law. We need to maintain qualified immunity in the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act. “
“It has to be kept,” she said. “It shouldn’t be watered down. It is one of the strongest and most important provisions of this law. This is how we come to the healing, and guidelines are the only evidence that matters at this moment, no hashtags and likes. What is important at this moment are budget changes and policy changes. “
Pressley didn’t stop there and doubled in size.

“The work we must do to reaffirm the humanity of black life, to believe that it was not so long ago that saving black life matter was viewed as a controversial proposition,” said Pressley.
“When people are tired of hearing it, imagine how tired we are of having to say it,” she continued. “The fact is, black Americans and other marginalized communities have suffered undue damage for centuries because I would call this political violence, not naturally occurring, very precise politics.”
“So when we are really in the middle of a reckoning, which means that we are reconciling with who we were and who we continue to be, we are going to make a transformative, bold change,” said Pressley. “We’re going to put the value of black lives in our policies and budgets, and it’s not just a bill.”

“So I hope that my colleagues have the political will, courage and perseverance to do the work that is truly necessary to affirm and affirm, once and for all, that Black Lives matters, and to make families accountable and to give the cure for it you deserve it, ”she added.
“I just want us to pass laws that keep black Americans and other marginalized communities alive,” she concluded. “This is about investing in communities to meet the most basic needs.”
