Speaking on CNN’s “State of the Union,” de Blasio called Biden’s work on the bill a “huge mistake.”
“That crime bill was one of the foundations of mass incarceration and a very painful era in our nation’s history,” he said. “[Biden] and anyone else has to be accountable for every vote they take and what’s on their record … I think that was a huge mistake.”
De Blasio added that the crime bill and other federal policy were part of why “untold thousands of people and families had their lives entirely disrupted, and in many ways destroyed.”
“We’ve got to break out of that, and anyone responsible has to be accountable,” he said….
