In his upcoming Fiscal Year 2023 budget, President Joe Biden intends to address the escalating crime rates in the United States by requesting Congress to allocate $32 billion towards law enforcement and crime prevention efforts, Your Content has learned.

This move, despite long-standing demands from progressive factions of his party to defund the police, showcases Biden’s commitment to ensuring public safety.

The proposed budget, set to be unveiled on Monday, not only tackles the pressing issue of rising crime but also includes other significant measures.

Among them is a 20% minimum tax on households with a net worth exceeding $100 million, aiming to promote fiscal equity within the country.

President Biden has distanced himself from the defunding rhetoric as the 2022 midterms approach, emphasizing the importance of adequately funding law enforcement agencies.

During his recent State of the Union address, he stated, “We should all agree that the answer is not to defund the police; it’s to fund the police.”

With crime rates experiencing an alarming surge, particularly in urban areas, concerns regarding community safety have become widespread among Americans.

Acknowledging these concerns, the budget proposal for FY2023 demonstrates Biden’s determination to prioritize public security and support the efforts of law enforcement in combating crime effectively, according to CNBC.
