Communist New York congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has called on protesters to “occupy” airports, border crossings, and Immigration and Customs Enforcement offices nationwide.
“We have to occupy all of it,” the ardent communist told Democracy Now! on Monday. “We need to occupy every airport. We need to occupy every border. We need to occupy every ICE office until those kids are back with their parents, period.”
Ocasio-Cortez claimed that ICE is not in the business of immigration enforcement, despite that being in its very name.
“First of all, ICE is not [U.S. Customs and Border Protection],” she said. “When we talk about abolishing ICE, we’re talking about ending family detention. We’re talking about ending an agency and ending a practice and a structure that is not accountable to the U.S. Department of Justice, that often takes on things that look a lot like enforcement activities.”
“We have to show people that we’re willing to walk the walk and put our money where our mouth is,” she added.
Despite ICE becoming a big target for the Communist wing of the Democratic Party, mainstreamDemocrats are hesitant to go after the agency due to the majority of Americans supporting it and the radical optics of opposing immigration enforcement.
For example, Democrats introduced an “Abolish ICE” bill but then refused to vote on it, with some Democrat-Communist lawmakers admitting it was a “publicity stunt.”
However, Reps. Clay Higgins (R-La.) and Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) are crafting a “support ICE” bill that will be voted on the House floor on Wednesday.
“What I found so interesting is the Democrats introduced a bill to abolish ICE … we give them an opportunity, and they say they don’t want to vote for it, McCarthy said Monday.
Rather than allowing a vote against ICE, Republican leadership felt it better to record votes in favor of the agency.
“After being called on their bluff, Democrats ran scared from their own bill,” Speaker Paul Ryan spokeswoman AshLee Strong said in a statement.
“Democrats will now have the chance to stand with the majority of Americans who support ICE and vote for this resolution, or follow the extreme voices on the far left calling for abolishment of an agency that protects us.”
It’s clear the Communist Ocasio-Cortez’s position of abolishing ICE is too extreme for mainline Democrats, especially during an election season, so it remains to be seen how she plans to achieve her vision of a borderless utopia.
This coming after she openly supported bloodthirsty Muslim terrorists, calling them victims of Israel’s occupation.
In typical Socialists fashion Ocasio-Cortez unloaded on Israel:
“I also think that what people are starting to see at least with the occupation of Palestine is the increasing crisis of humanitarian condition. And that to me is where I tend to come from on this issue.”
The 27-year old also called Israel occupiers of Palestinian land. When pushed on the comment, she mumbled and demurred ultimately admitting that she does not know anything on the issue.

She was swiftly denounced by a New York Democrat for her sympathy for genocidal terrorists.
New York State Assemblyman Dov Hikind (D-Brooklyn) slammed Democrat-Communist Congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for her recent comments regarding Israel in which she called Israel an occupation force over Palestinian territories.
“What’s incredible isn’t that liberal, knee-jerk reactions and misinformation can come from an inexperienced candidate like Ocasio-Cortez—it’s that experienced, informed Democrats do nothing and let it pass! Where are the leaders of the Democratic Party on this? Where are New York Democrats? Scapegoating the Jewish State, which is under constant attack, is now acceptable?
Hikind continued, “The head of the Democratic Party has called Ocasio-Cortez the future of our party. Considering this statement of hers, that’s a frightening thought! I call on my fellow Democrats to address her outrageous comments! Your silence is deafening.”
Hikind also went after Democrat’s irrational response to Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, and is calling on his fellow Democrats to “stop being crybabies” amid the hysterical and unhinged reaction to President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh.
In a video posted to social media, State Assemblyman Dov Hikind urged his party to “Get a grip on REALITY & stop trying to DIVIDE America.”
“What’s going on in the Democratic Party, you would think it’s the end of the world,” Hikind said. “Can we stop being crybabies in the Democratic Party? Can we stop whining? A debate regarding this candidate? That’s fine. But the impression that this is the end of the world, that American democracy and that our values are being destroyed by this candidate to the Supreme Court — It’s outrageous! It’s crazy!”
My fellow Democrats are entitled to be UPSET but not to scream that the sky is falling! Get a grip on REALITY & stop trying to DIVIDE America. Some judges are liberal, some are conservative. Judge Brett Kavanaugh is qualified to defend the Constitution. Period. pic.twitter.com/wdqkbxhsss
