At today’s Senate Judiciary Committee hearing, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) grilled Nina Morrison, nominee to be United States District Judge for the Eastern District of New York, on whether Soros-backed DA Larry Krasner has led to a safer Philadelphia.
The city of Philadelphia has set a record in 2021 with 559 murders committed, the most in its history since records began. It has outstripped more populous cities that have also seen rates spike, like New York and Los Angeles. The rate surged from last year’s 499 murders and represented a major increase from 2019’s 356 killings.
