House Democrats blocked a procedural motion Thursday to condemn the Defund the Police movement and the riots that have emerged after George Floyd’s death.
As the House prepared to vote on the Democrat-sponsored Justice in Policing Act, Rep. Greg Steube (R-FL) introduced a motion to delay its passage to allow a vote on a proposed amendment which:
Steube’s revision attempt failed with 231 votes against and 176 votes in favor. Not a single Democrat voted for Steube’s amendment.
House Judiciary Committee Ranking Member Jim Jordan (R-OH) praised Steube’s amendment, saying that it would call for “justice” for police officers as well as George Floyd.
