We get it.
The cornerstone of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s magical socialist platform is abolishing ICE.
Problem is, the majority of Dems do NOT want ICE abolished. *shrug*
That, of course, hasn’t stopped the Democratic sweetheart from pushing the issue:
It is a human rights violation to separate children from parents, as ICE has done.
This admin continues to keep children from their parents. Sexual assault and abuse is not uncommon in ICE detention, either.
This is a moral crisis. And we must address it.https://t.co/C06jKccdVT

The administration (and administrations before it) looks to separate children from ‘parents’ to make sure they are their parents.
It is to protect them from trafficking and other horrible things.
Alexandria would be better off to just admit this is about wanting open borders.
It’s also not uncommon for the human sex traffickers and drug smugglers that bring these minors over our borders. Fix that and maybe we won’t need ICE.

Or you know, keep enforcing the laws and stop people from entering our country illegally in the first place? Crazy, right?
Fine. Now do American citizens in prisons separated from their children.

Is it a human rights violation to separate American citizens from their children when they break the law?
Unlike the parents who have been separated permanently because their child was murdered by an illegal. But, whatever…

Obama separated families too. So did Bush. Check it out. It’s not new.

Fascinating how we didn’t hear a peep about this while Obama was president. Oh, wait, we did. From Republicans who knew we had an issue at the border and who were ignored by President Pen and Phone.
Let’s not forget that your solution is to abolish ICE. That’s like scrapping a car because it needs a tune up.

Let’s not pretend she actually has a real solution. It’s all about talking points that fit nicely on bumper stickers and t-shirts.
