ICYMI: SENATOR LOEFFLER INTRODUCES LEGISLATION TO CRACK DOWN ON GANGS
ATLANTA – Yesterday, conservative businesswoman and political outsider Kelly Loeffler introduced legislation to strengthen federal sentencing guidelines for gang-related crimes and create a nationwide database to track gang activity. In practice, the Cracking Down on Gangs and Deporting Criminals Act of 2020 would make it easier to put gang members behind bars by increasing sentences for gang-related crimes. It also increases the likelihood of deporting a gang member who is in the country illegally. Loeffler’s legislation is endorsed by Governor Brian Kemp, Attorney General Chris Carr, and Georgia Bureau of Investigation Director Vic Reynolds.
“At a time when Democratic Mayors across the country are failing to stand up for the safety of our loved ones, we must take the lead and crack down on the dangerous gangs that are wreaking havoc on our communities,” said Senator Loeffler. “I’m proud to have the backing of so many strong leaders in law enforcement, who support my plan to increase punishments for criminal gang members and deport those gang members who are living in our country illegally. It’s time we get back to being a nation of law and order – and that starts with getting tough on our country’s worst offenders.”
