While Kamala Harris has yet to visit the U.S.-Mexico border during a ballooning illegal immigration crisis, she did find time to meet with hip hop star Lil Baby, whose Grammy Awards performance featured him protesting against the police and standing on a law enforcement vehicle.
Lil Baby, whose real name is Dominique Armani Jones, posted photos with Kamala Harris on his Instagram social media account, where he thanked her for making time in her busy schedule to sit down and have “an open discussion” with him.
While the content of their conversation remains unclear, The Hill notes that the meeting between Harris and Lil Baby took place after the rapper joined the family of George Floyd in D.C. on Tuesday in an effort to influence legislators to pass the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act.
Per reports from Breitbart News, this particular bill would eliminate an array of different law enforcement practices at the federal level, including no-knock warrants, racial profiling, and chokeholds. In addition, the same bill would also entail weakened legal positions for law enforcement officers, namely by making it easier to subject them to prosecution and lawsuits.
Earlier this year, Lil Baby delivered a Grammy Awards performance in which he stood defiantly atop a police car in order to protest against law enforcement officers.
As Breitbart notes, the rapper’s performance of the song “The Bigger Picture” also featured a speech from Tamika D. Mallory, a major BLM activist, who stared directly into the camera and demanded for Joe Biden to bring about “justice, equity, policy, and everything else that freedom encompasses.”
During the performance, various entertainers also reenacted a riot scene as an image of a burning building blazed in the background, all while Lil Baby remained on top of the police car.
