The ‘Squad’ Has Spent $1M On Private Security To Push Defunding Police

  • Members of the progressive “Squad” have spent a combined $1 million since the start of their push to defund the police, according to a Washington Free Beacon review of campaign filings.
  • Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D., N.Y.) and her five fellow “Squad” members have spent a combined $1.03 million on private security services since May 2020, when the push to defund the police took off in response to the death of George Floyd.
  • As crime spikes nationwide, the lawmakers have defended their lavish security spending as they work in Congress to strip their constituents of police protection on the streets.
