AOC: Time to End This Criminal Legal Immigration System

AOC: Time to End This Criminal Legal Immigration System

May 19, 2021

Sharing a letter on Monday signed by prominent Democrats demanding an end to what they called a “discriminatory criminal legal system,” Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) called on U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to “end the carceral approach to immigration.”

In a letter addressed to Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas and ICE Director Tae Johnson, the far-left Democrats complained that ICE does “not provide adequate protection for the liberty interests of recently arrived immigrants seeking humanitarian relief and further criminalizes and dehumanizes immigration by relying on the discriminatory criminal legal system.”

The Democrats added that ICE does not protect the “liberty interests of asylum seekers” by presuming that any immigrant who illegally entered the country on or after November 1, 2020, is a “border security enforcement and removal priority.”

“It is time t0 end the carceral approach to immigration, which relies on these flawed systems,” the Democrats declared, urging the Biden administration to pursue “humane and just immigration policies that aim to end mass incarceration, criminalization and deportation of immigrants.”

Signers predictably included the most radical Representatives in Congress: Ayanna Pressley, Pramila Jayapal, and Rashida Tlaib. They and their fellow open-borders Democrats like AOC always prioritize illegal aliens over legal citizens, and criminals over the law-abiding. They are America-wrecking totalitarians at heart, undermining the country’s legal and constitutional foundations in order to fashion a one-party state.
