Liberal superstar Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez raised eyebrows throughout America’s law enforcement community this week; viciously claiming ICE agents “incarcerate children” and sexually assault female detainees.
The 2018 hopeful smeared federal agents on social media Tuesday, just hours before it was revealed the suspected murderer of a missing Iowa student was living in the United States illegally.
“#AbolishICE means not having an agency that incarcerates children and sexually assaults women with impunity. It does not mean abolish deportation. Also, I have no problem saying white supremacy has no place in this country. It’s the GOP that struggles to say that,” said Cortez.

Cortez’ comments come after the self-described socialist found herself under fire for calling Israeli settlers the “occupiers of Palestine” and demanding a “living wage” for everyone in the US.
IT BEGINS: Dem Introduces Bill to ‘ABOLISH ICE,’ Calls Trump ‘WHITE NATIONALIST’
A Democratic congressman introduced legislation to officially “abolish” the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency this week, saying “heartless” ICE agents are “ripping at the moral fabric of our nation.”
Rep Mark. Pocan of Wisconsin sponsored the left-wing bill just days after President Trump signed an executive order ending “family separations” along the US-Mexico border, saying the agency fails to “represent the values” of America.
“ICE is tearing apart families and ripping at the moral fabric of our nation,” said Pocan. “Unfortunately, President Trump and his team of white nationalists, including Stephen Miller, have so misused ICE that the agency can no longer accomplish its goals effectively.”
“The heartless actions of this abused agency do not represent the values of our nation and the U.S. must develop a more humane immigration system, one that treats every person with dignity and respect,” he added.

IT BEGINS: Democrat Calls to ABOLISH ICE Grow Heading into Midterms
More and more Liberal legislators and candidates are calling for the total abolishment of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency; creating a “litmus test” for potential lawmakers heading into the 2018 midterms.
According to Fox News, the Democrats’ renewed calls to limit or eliminate the agency comes as thousands protest the detention of illegal immigrants along the United States’ southern border with Mexico.
“The calls reflect not only the deepening divide between the two partisan poles on immigration — with one side seeking a border wall, and the other looking to dismantle the lead enforcement agency — but the growing influence of the progressive wing,” writes Fox.
“Its extra-judicial nature is baked into the structure of the agency and that is why they are able to get away with black sites at our border, with the separation of children,” said Democrat primary winner Ocasio-Cortez.
