One Nation, a public policy organization dedicated to promoting commonsense legislative solutions, launched a new advocacy effort in Georgia to protect local communities from criminals who pose a dangerous threat.
The new spot, “Pattern,” asks Georgians to call on Congressman Doug Collins to oppose legislation that would give the opportunity to dangerous prisoners for release into the community, and to stop working with liberals in Congress to grant release from prison to some sex traffickers and other sex offenders as he has done in the past. The advocacy effort includes a $1.2 million investment on television, cable, radio, and digital.
One Nation strongly supports the efforts of President Trump to sign the First Step Act into law – which protects our communities while simultaneously giving Americans a second chance. But Congressman Doug Collins’ bill, H.R. 3356, took a sharply different tack by allowing for early release even for some sex traffickers. The Collins bill was supported by House Democratic Caucus Chairman Hakeem Jeffries and Congressional Progressive Caucus Co-Chairwoman Pramila Jayapal, among others.
“President Trump worked hard to achieve landmark legislation that balances the goal of giving some incarcerated Americans a fresh chance at life while protecting our communities from dangerous criminals. But proposals by Congressman Doug Collins and others to let dangerous sex offenders back into our communities fly in the face of what the President and Congress have achieved.” -One Nation Communications Director Jack Pandol
The script of the advertisement can be found below:
We need tough laws to keep violent criminals behind bars and off the streets.
But some in Congress want to take us in a dangerously different direction.
Congressman Collins sided with liberals and proposed legislation which would have allowed early release for certain sex traffickers, even some people caught with child pornography.
We can’t let this dangerous pattern continue.
Tell Congressman Collins he needs to stop supporting early release of dangerous criminals and oppose H.R. 3795.
