Senate Republicans argue that Delaware’s bail reform bill passed in 2018 has “resulted in high recidivism” – a criticism that Republicans across the country have used in recent years as states moved away from cash bail. 

However, the data doesn’t back up that claim. In fact, the “return to prison” rate has declined 60% since 2019, according to data from the state Department of Justice.

Do you see how easy this is? You don’t simply have to parrot things that are inaccurate, just because an elected official says them. Thank you, Amanda.
