“Dígale a la Cámara que elimine la Enmienda Anti-Negros del Senado a la Resolución de Presupuesto,” el grupo tuiteó el viernes. “Votan sobre esto la próxima semana!”
En un tweet anterior, etiquetaron la medida como “universal attempt to silence the demands from the streets.”
Passed in the Senate last week, the GOP-backed amendment was geared toward withholding funding from localities that engage in defunding efforts. Multiple outlets covered Democrats’ support as a way to avoid a fight with Republicans.
Su. Cory Booker, D-N.J., said at the time that the amendment was a “gift.” Referring to its sponsor, Su. Tommy Tuberville, R-Ala., Booker dicho: “This senator has given the gift that finally once and for all we can put to bed this scurrilous accusation that somebody in this great, esteemed body would want to defund the police.”
He reportedly told colleagues “not to walk but sashay” to support the amendment.
That statement was apparently a step too far for BLM, sin embargo, as they lamented that “NO ONE” in the Senate had their back.
“No cometer errores,” the group tweeted, “this is a universal attempt to silence the demands from the streets. This is an attempt to put our movement ‘in check.’ No one, we repeat NO ONE, had the back of our revolutionary movement in the Senate.”
In a follow-up tweet, they added: “De hecho, 1 del 2 Black Democratic Senators — Cory Booker — said in a speech tonight that he thinks this amendment is ‘a gift’ that would let Democrats ‘put to bed this scurrilous accusation that somebody in this great esteemed body would want to defund the police.’”
Booker’s office did not immediately respond to Fox News’ petición de comentario.
