Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., weighed in Tuesday on the proposed New York City budget cuts to the police department she said don’t go far enough, saying “defunding police means defunding police.”

“Defunding police means defunding police. It does not mean budget tricks or funny math. It does not mean moving school police officers from the NYPD budget to the Department of Education’s budget so the exact same police remain in schools,” the congresswoman said in a statement.

The article goes on to state the following:

Establishment Democrats and progressives have debated over what “defund the police” actually means. Some argue the phrase shouldn’t be taken literally and just stands to represent police reforms.

In the statement released by Ocasio-Cortez, she declared:

“It does not mean counting overtime cuts as cuts, even as NYPD ignores every attempt by City Council to curb overtime spending and overspends on overtime anyways. It does not mean hiring more police officers while cutting more than $800M from NYC schools.  If these reports are accurate, then these proposed ‘cuts’ to the NYPD budget are a disingenuous illusion. This is not a victory. The fight to defund policing continues.”

  1. I’m sure she realizes that her statement reignites the protesters that were going to leave after they decided to cut funds to police in New York. Now they’re claiming they will not leave because they didn’t get what they wanted. Thanks Ms Cortez for continuing the rioting.

  2. You NY voters elected that miserable little Bi(@#’&h. The bigger problem is she has a voice in congress

  3. She needs to have these rioters and looters at her door step and call 911 for help that does not arrive. I do not wish her physical harm of course just we she would experience things first hand when you have no police!! She needs to go back to McDonalds asking if you would like fries with that!!
