Socialist Democrat candidate for Congress Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in New York’s 14th District says agents with the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency have “violently committed human rights abuses.”
During a speech to left-wing activists, Ocasio-Cortez—the candidate whom Democratic National Committee chairman Tom Perez says is the “future” of the Democratic Party—claims that ICE is “violently” and “repeatedly” abusing criminal illegal aliens.
“I happen to believe that an agency that has repeatedly, systematically, and violently committed human rights abuses cannot be reformed,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “That’s what I believe. Not under this administration, especially. And it’s time that we take that tool away.”
