CONCORD, NH — During his visit to New Hampshire on the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, Chris Christie opened the door to abolishing the Department of Homeland Security. NHDP spokesperson Aida Ross released the following statement in response:
“You can’t make this up — on the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, Chris Christie floated to Granite Staters the idea of abolishing DHS. Christie is embracing the fringe anti-law enforcement extremism peddled by his former boss Donald Trump, even if it means putting our national security at risk.”
Here’s a look at 2024 Republicans’ calls to defund and abolish federal law enforcement:
Donald Trump has unashamedly called to defund federal law enforcement, just like his MAGA supporters in Congress. When he was president, Trump proposed cuts to law enforcement programs in his federal budget every year in office.
Vivek Ramaswamy has repeatedly called to shut down the FBI and gut federal law enforcement.
