Tlaib was one of the foremost advocates of “Defund the Police,” announcing her support for legislation that would divest federal money from federal law enforcement entities, detention centers, and state prisons, among a host of other things.

Republicans slammed Tlaib for comparing law enforcement officers to murderers:
