Congressman Carlos Gimenez (FL-28) released the following statement regarding the proposed cash bail reform in Miami-Dade County.
“Miami-Dade County is not Chicago, New York, or San Francisco. Woke socialist cash bail reform programs have led to skyrocketing crime across our nation,” said Congressman Carlos Gimenez (FL-28).
“As Mayor of Miami-Dade County, we successfully reduced crime by innovating and enforcing the rule of law. In fact, Miami-Dade has welcomed thousands who have fled the crime-infested cities which have abolished or reformed their cash bail programs. Our County must never follow the path of America’s decaying liberal cities. I wholeheartedly oppose any effort to abolish cash bail in Miami-Dade County.”
Congressman Gimenez represents much of Miami-Dade County and the entirety of the Florida Keys. He is the former Mayor of Miami-Dade County and first Cuban-American fire Chief the City of Miami.
