Biden to Call for Nationwide Police Reform During April 28 Congressional Speech


Police reform is a hot button issue in America. There are many people who believe that more training and other changes to the way policing happens in this nation are necessary; of course, there are others, such as Democrat House Rep. Rashida Tlaib, who seek to abolish law enforcement altogether.

Since Tlaib’s tweet that calls for the end of police in America, the White House has confirmed that President Biden has a different perspective. The Democrat president is supportive of reforming, rather than dismantling, law enforcement in the United States.

Next week, when Biden delivers remarks before Congress, he will call for police reform.

What to expect from President Biden’s upcoming congressional speech

Next Wednesday, the Democrat president will speak before a congressional joint session. This speech will involve advocacy for police reform, something the White House maintains that Biden is eager to sign into law.

Earlier today, the White House also confirmed that Biden believes that legal convictions of law enforcement officers are too hard. Therefore, the president seeks to lower the bar. During a White House press conference today, Jen Psaki confirmed that Biden is in talks with legislators about the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act.
