Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Wants to Eliminate Department of Homeland Security and ICE.
During an interview with David Remnick on New York Radio, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez stated that she would be open to eliminating the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).
Remnick asked: “Would you get rid of Homeland Security too?”
Ocasio-Cortez answered: “I think so, I think so. I think we need to undo a lot of the egregious, a lot of the egregious mistakes that the Bush administration did. I feel like we are at a very, it’s a very qualified and supported position, at least in terms of evidence, and in terms of being able to make the argument, that we never should’ve created DHS in the early 2000s.”
Here’s a portion of the video clip:

Yes Susana, this is Absolutely an Insane and Dangerous idea.
Recently, the freshman congresswoman made some serious accusations against Border Patrols’ treatment of illegal immigrants as well as referring to the detention centers as “concentration camps.” Ocasio-Cortez does not believe illegal immigrants who are caught crossing the border should be held in detention centers.
Here’s a video clip tweeted by The Hill of Ocasio-Cortez saying, “I think ‘Abolish ICE’ is a call to action on several levels. One is the literal interpretation of all abolishing ICE, which I support…I don’t believe that an agency that systematically & repeatedly violates human rights – I don’t think that agency can be reformed.”
