LatinoJustice PRLDEF Statement on Federal Executive Order Aiming to “Root Out” White Supremacists from Policing 
President Biden signed the historic order on the second anniversary of the killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis
  

New York, NY – On the second anniversary of the murder of George Floyd 𑁋whose death sparked outrage nationwide against police brutality𑁋President Joe Biden signed an executive order for federal law enforcement agencies around policing and public safety.

The following statement can be attributed to Lourdes M. Rosado, President and General Counsel, LatinoJustice PRLDEF: 
“We welcome the Biden Administration’s Executive Order to increase accountability and transparency in policing, which includes screening federal law enforcement officers for ties to white supremacist organizations. A leaked list of the members of a white supremacist terrorist organization revealed that dozens of its members were current or former law enforcement officers or trainers. We ask the Biden administration to begin its review with Brandon Judd, a current Border Patrol Agent and the president of the National Border Patrol Council Union. On May 6, 2022, Judd espoused so-called ‘replacement theory,’ in an interview with Fox News, just a week before a fellow terrorist murdered ten people in a supermarket, justifying his actions with this theory. The CBP and many other DHS agencies are thoroughly infested with white supremacists, and we urge the Biden administration to root them all out.”
