Recently sworn-in Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez renewed her calls to completely “abolish” the Immigrations and Customs Enforcement Agency Wednesday; saying she “cannot and will not accept it.”
“Look at this picture. When you’re looking at this photo, you’re looking at a mirror. This is America. This is Texas. This is our the course of action, the one we chose. I cannot and will not accept it. #EndFamilySeparation& #AbolishICE & #ReuniteFamilies & Stop #BackersOfHate,” tweeted Ocasio-Cortez.

Cortez’ comments come hours after Senate Democrats refused to endorse her ‘Green New Deal’ proposal; opting to vote “present” instead of going on-the-record in support of the massive government program.
BOOKER GOES BERSERK: Cory Says Republican Policies ‘Could Cause People’s Death’
Senator Cory Booker unloaded on President Trump and Republican leadership this week when he viciously stated that implementing GOP policies “would have hurt people” and would likely “cause people’s death.”
Booker was speaking with liberal podcast ‘Pod Save America’ when he was asked to comment on recent proposals from both sides of the aisle that the Senate abolish the so-called “filibuster rule.”
“To people on both sides, we are heading that way. You hear Trump calling for the end of the filibuster rule, and I understand that if I am the commander-in-chief, the president of the United States fighting a tactical battle, that that is something that is—we are moving toward,” said Booker.
“If Mitch McConnell, Paul Ryan, Donald Trump for the last two years, had complete sway, they wouldn’t have just changed policy, which is nice, they would have hurt people in my community, literally doing policies that could cause people’s death,” he added.
DEMOCRAT DISASTER: Poll Shows 69% of Americans OPPOSED to Abolishing ICE
A stunning new poll conducted by a longtime Clinton insider may spell disaster for the Democrats heading into the 2018 midterm elections; revealing a whopping majority of Americans are opposed to abolishing the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency.
The survey -conducted by Democratic pollster Mark Penn- shows most voters are in favor of stricter border controls, think those arrested while in the United States illegally should be sent back to their home countries, and largely support ICE agents enforcing federal law.
“Penn polled the newest progressive immigration proposal, the ‘Abolish ICE’ campaign to disband U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. Sixty-nine percent of those surveyed (78 percent of Republicans, 59 percent of Democrats, and 73 percent of independents) said ICE should not be abolished, while 31 percent said it should,” writes the Washington Examiner.
A growing number of leading Democrats -including NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, and others- have called for the abolishment of ICE in recent weeks, saying the agency was “broken” and failed to represent the values of the United States.
