Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) attacked federal immigration officers on Thursday after an illegal alien MS-13 gang member, who had 12 prior arrests, allegedly murdered someone on Sunday in her district, which is a sanctuary city.
“This is one of the most urgent moral issues and crises that we have in America right now,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “This is not a political issue. Children dying in detention centers should not be a partisan concern. It should be a universal concern for every American in the United States.”
“ICE operates with virtually no accountability, ripping apart families and holding our friends and neighbors indefinitely in inhumane detention centers scattered across the United States,” Ocasio-Cortez continued.
“We’re here to say that an agency like ICE, which repeatedly and systematically violates human rights, does not deserve a dime.”
“I will not give one dollar to black-box detention facilities that think that some people in this country are deserving of constitutional protections and others are not,” Ocasio-Cortez added.
“We are a land of laws, what that means is that every person that steps foot on this soil deserves … to have access to our Bill of Rights.”
Ocasio-Cortez also attacked President Donald Trump over his State of the Union address, where she begrudgingly stood and refused to clap when he championed cracking down on child sex trafficking.
