Far-left Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez baffled millions of Americans this week when she led a group of 34 lawmakers that actually urged ICE and border agents to allow illegal alien felons to remain in the United States.
“Recently, we led 34 colleagues in calling on ICE to end the carceral approach to immigration. We need humane and just immigration policies that aim to end mass incarceration, criminalization and deportation of immigrants,” posted AOC on Twitter.

“‘Aggravated felonies’ as a category have been designed to ensure that people have as few rights as possible to fight detention and deportation,” Ocasio-Cortez and her colleagues wrote.
“Moreover, we are concerned that the memorandum only requires ICE officers have a ‘good faith belief’ that someone has an aggravated felony conviction even while acknowledging that such a determination is ‘a complex question,’” they continued.
“It is well documented that law enforcement’s practices of labelling people as gang-involved is often faulty, based on arbitrary and racist factors, and not subject to due process,” the lawmakers claimed.
“We are in a moment of racial reckoning in this country, with communities across the country calling for an end to mass incarceration and racist policing,” the group continued. “It is time to end the carceral approach to immigration, which relies on these same flawed systems.”
