Last week, U.S. Rep. Carlos Gimenez, R-Fla., weighed in against reforming cash bail in Miami-Dade County.
Gimenez had served as mayor of Miami-Dade County for almost a decade before being elected to Congress.
“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 Gimenez.
“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,” he added.
Gimenez represents parts of Miami-Dade County and all of Monroe County.
