Freshman Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez used her appearance on MSNBC following President Donald Trumps Oval Office address on Tuesday night to demand the president explain why ICE shouldnt be abolished.
Ocasio-Cortez began, No one should feel unsafe in the United States of America. And that includes our amazing and beautiful and productive immigrant community and moreover, the one thing the president has not talked about is the fact he has systematically engaged in the violation of international human rights borders human rights on our border.
During the presidents speech, he explained why he felt the border wall was essential to protect American citizens. Congressional Democratic leadership delivered a counter-speech immediately after Trump finished.
He talked about what happened the day after Christmas on the day of Christmas, a child died in ICE custody. The president should not be asking for more money to an agency that has systematically violated human rights, she continued. The president should be really defending why we are funding such an agency at all because right now what we are seeing is death.
The eight-year-old Guatemalan boy who passed away did so after receiving medical treatment for a cold and a fever.
Right now what we are seeing is the violation of human rights. These children and these families are being held in
basically freezing boxes that no person should be maintained in for any amount of time let alone the amount of time they are being kept on. And moreover, even if youre anti-immigrant in this country, the majority of immigrant overstays, the majority of the reason people are undocumented is Visa overstay. Its not because people are crossing a border.
Dumbass. In 6 months she’ll be about as relevant as the Hogg boy. I can’t even remember his first name anymore.
AOC needs to take on ten MS-13 boarders at her new DC compound.
Hey dingbat, try going into Mexico without permission from the Mexican government?
This ho needs to explain to me what she is doing in my country.
To keep all the Ocasio-Cortezes out.
They are NOT immigrants.
Illegal aliens are people who broke in or overstayed visas.
Are Liberals incapable of saying the word “ILLEGAL”?
Does this Moron lock the door at her Home and her new Congressional Office?
It’s obvious garbling pelosi allows cackling cortez free rein to spew balderdash, making nancy appear less harebrained of the two.
Where do the Dems find these brain trust babies anyway?
They don’t have a clue that innocent citizens are at risk daily and it doesn’t matter to most on the Left how many times criminal illegals get deported and sneak back here thru the porous border.
.. and neither the media or the Left cares.
She’s got it all figured out. Congress
may as well just sit back and watch this
genius at work.
Dont mind her, shes a little slow...her momma dropped her on her head.
This genius fits right in with the other congressrats and will be there as long as she wants.
The collective IQ of that side of the aisle has gone even lower.
His 1st name was D Bag I believe.
Most importantly, the legal citizens of this country, along with those who have followed the LEGAL path to citizenship. Funny, isn't that what ICE is charged to do? Maybe not in New Yorkistan where you live.
Enjoy her folks. She dont come around to often. Shes a gift. Stupid on display is a beautiful sight when its them.
It can be explained to her, but would she understand?
