D Hopeful Democratic presidential candidate Kamala Harris now distances herself from a Californian policy she once pleaded for for the persecuted parents whose children had missed too many school days.
In an interview with the liberal Podcast "Pod Save America", which was released Wednesday, Harris said that as president, she would not support a law like the one in California that punishes parents for tipping.
The California senator was faced with criticism over the politics of the presidential campaign. Some see it as a contradiction to their support for the reform of the criminal justice system and the goal of reducing the incarceration of masses.
Harris's policy as a district attorney in San Francisco threatened his parents with a felony charge, punishable by "a fine of up to $ 2,500 or up to a year in prison."
She liked politics so much that when she became Attorney General in 201
Harris continues to announce her changes to the school drop-out program on her campaign website, stating that she has "been working to reduce primary school education so every child can exercise their right to education."
She was detained under her supervision for dropping out of school. She regrets that the directive has resulted in some parents being detained in other territories.
"I regret that I have now heard stories in which prosecutors have criminalized parents in some jurisdictions," Harris said. "And I regret that this has happened, and the thought that everything I've done could have led to it – because that was certainly not the intention, was never the intention."
She put the charges on "unintended consequences". and billed the program to prevent young people from being locked up later in their lives.
"I realized that the system failed these children, did not provide the services to keep them in school, to make it easier for their parents to do what those parents naturally do with their children's parenting wanted to. And so I put it in the limelight, "she said.
Harris adopted a different tone about politics when she was a prosecutor and attorney general in California.
"I believe that a child who grows up without education is a crime. So I decided that I would start prosecuting parents for graduating from high school, "Harris said in a speech of 2010 .
"My office is prosecuting parents in a specialized school court created by us that combines close court monitoring with tailored family services. To date, I have prosecuted 20 parents of young children for graduating from high school, "Harris wrote in a 2009 presentation. "Our groundbreaking strategy worked."
