(ThePatriotSource)- Far-left Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez tweeted an insensitive, radical, and divisive statement in response to a tweet made by Immigration and Customs Enforcement on Monday.
“Today, we honor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s message of hope, justice, and equality”, ICE tweeted, in a popular post celebrating racial equality in the United States.
The tweet received a huge amount of support from Republicans and Democrats alike, but Ocasio-Cortez chose to go down the divisive route instead.
“Abolish ICE,” she tweeted in response.
Abolish ICE. https://t.co/h4zIbesjRe

Weren’t the Democrats just telling us to “unite”?
It’s not the first time that AOC has called for ICE to be abolished, but to do it on a post celebrating Martin Luther King, Jr. Day is a particularly low blow, even for her.
Ocasio-Cortez, one of the most radically left-wing and socialist members of the House of Congress, has still yet to offer an explanation of what she believes should or could replace it.
Immigration and Customs Enforcement is the federal law enforcement agency that oversees homeland security investigations, immigration, removals, and border security. They oversee a huge amount of operations not just on the southern border of the United States but in airports, seaports, and more.
Without ICE, the United States would be severely hindered in protecting its borders from foreign threats and aliens, and would not have sufficient measures in place to ensure that the legal immigration process runs smoothly.
While the goal of Democrats like AOC is to make immigration into the United States easier, and to grant citizenship to illegal aliens, her idea to abolish ICE does not answer the question of who would be responsible for stopping dangerous extremists and criminals from entering the country.
Alveda King, the niece of Martin Luther King, Jr., told Fox News on Monday that AOC’s Twitter feed was filled with plenty of references to her uncle, but that she doesn’t replicate his attitude.
“I believe AOC really should take a page out of Martin Luther King Jr.’s book,” King said to Harris Faulkner on Fox News.
Alveda King also told Fox that her uncle supported the law and law enforcement officers, and said that the law “cannot transform the human heart.”
“There are laws on the books now that will severely punish White supremacists, and that should be the case,” King added. “We know that White supremacy is wrong, it must be punished, but every crime against humanity is bad and so we have to protect human dignity, but not only with the law. We have to transform these hearts.”
Good luck getting that message through to AOC.
