Kirsters Baish| Democratic Socialist sweetheart Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has been making headlines lately. In June’s New York primary, the 28-year-old politician took down the fourth most powerful Democrat within the House of Representatives, Representative Joe Crowley.
Ocasio-Cortez and her followers believe in open borders, zero profit, no prisons, and no need for cash bail. It was just this last weekend that the New York Democratic Socialist lashed out, saying that Israel is occupying Palestine.
Now Ocasio-Cortez has pushed her supporters and alt left liberals to occupy every ICE office and all United States airports.
I believe the moral character of the United States is at stake. So for me, it wasn’t a question of whether I should go down [to the border]. We have to have a rapid response. And I think every day that we go on — especially a day when something that heinous happens — we have to occupy all of it. 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.

Breitbart News reports:
Socialist Democrat candidate for Congress Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in New York’s 14th District is calling on left wing and open borders activists to “occupy” all United States airports, all borders in the U.S., and every office of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency.
In a panel discussion with Democracy Now!, Ocasio-Cortez called for an uprising against President Trump’s “zero tolerance” policy at the U.S.-Mexico border where all border crossers and illegal aliens are being criminally prosecuted.
Ocasio-Cortez called on activists to hold all U.S. airports, the southern and northern border in the U.S., and every ICE office in occupation.
The New York socialist stated that activists should have their guard up and should be ready to “drop everything” in order to occupy all airports and ICE office buildings.
The politician stated, “We need to be ready to drop everything and go straight to LaGuardia airport. We need to be ready to drop everything and go straight to our local ICE agency.”
Ocasio-Cortez has accused the President of committing “internationally recognized human rights violations” against illegal immigrants crossing the border by enforcing a policy which includes the temporary separation of illegal immigrant minors from their families at the border.
“I went to the border because our nation is in a moral crisis and there is no convenient time for us to stand up against human rights violations , and every day that we allow these 2,000 children that have been ripped from their parents — which is an internationally recognized human rights violation — this is being done in our name, this is being done in representation of us as the United States citizens,” Ocasio-Cortez stated.
“Every day that we allow the continued violations of those children’s rights is the day that I believe the moral character of the United States is at stake,” she continued.
Breitbart News reports that roughly one out of five illegal immigrant adults making their way across the border with young children have not been permitted to reunite with their children. Reasons why they would not be allowed to reunite include things like the person was not actually the parent of the child, or the parent was found to be a criminal, or they showed some kind of threat to the child.
