Former Acting Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Director Tom Homan said Sunday that U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez made dangerous and idiotic statements regarding ICE and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) at a campaign rally for 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders in Iowa.
She's disgusting, Homan said on Fox & Friends Weekend on Sunday morning, reacting to Ocasio-Cortezs comments the night before.
On Saturday, with Sanders, I-Vt., tied up in Washington at President Trump's Senate impeachment trial, Ocasio-Cortez addressed his supporters in Ames, Iowa, calling for the abolition of ICE and CBP.
The New York Democrat also urged Sanders' supporters to start "tipping people off" if they see federal immigration authorities taking action against illegal immigrants in their communities.
Organizing is about tipping people off if you start to see that ICE and CBP are in communities to try and keep people safe, Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., said in Iowa on Saturday.
I'm to not here to reform some of these systems when we talk about immigration. I'm here because Sen. Sanders has actually committed to breaking up ICE and CBP. That's why I'm here.
Im disgusted, Homan said reacting to her statements. She says you want to tip off the community to keep the community safe, that's what ICE is doing.
Homan then brought up statistics from 2018, pointing out that most of the illegal immigrants ICE agents arrested last year had criminal histories, which include homicide, rape or assault.
According to the ICE Enforcement and Removal Operations Report for fiscal year 2018, 138,117 aliens with criminal histories, which include convicted criminal and pending criminal charges, were arrested.
ICE Is keeping the community safe, Homan said. She [Ocasio-Cortez] stands up on stage -- first of all, it's an incredibly stupid statement she made, which doesn't surprise me,...

Sounds like aiding and abetting.
Dangerous and Idiotic
Good names for those two.
She’s like a little kid with a bag of candy she found but refuses to share it with anyone except kids with a headful of cavities, like the cavity between her ears.
...first of all, it's an incredibly stupid statement she made, which doesn't surprise me...
You’re right on, my FRiend. She’s a genuine ditz.
This was supposed to be a rally for Bernie Sanders, but AOC never mentioned him by name.
He gives an appropriate response. It’s better than the typical squishy GOP timid comment.
Tom was HOT under the collar this morning.
The Democrats have a winning hand: pair of Idiots, Jokers and one queen.

Despite being two rotten peas in a pod, I’m sure she can make a good Mexican casserole. She looks the type any Latin mother would want their son to marry, being all skinny, steam lined with big eyes. That’s her appeal and she should forget politics because she doesn’t have the mind for it... stick to watching soaps and making casseroles and burritos.
Please, Dear God, let AOC and bernie win the demonRAT nomination.
If that happens, we may win 50 states, including, kalifornikator, highwai, newjork, newjoisey, illtilIpuke, and even tada...orwegone.
There has never been a 535-0 sweep, hell that's better than the 12 Superbowl wins by the Stillers and the Pats.
Shots or replies to AOC need to change from addressing her personally and to addressing those using her as a puppet dancing on a string.
They would win HI, CA, NY, VT, MD, DE, CT, MA, RI, and maybe NH.
Abolishing ICE and CBP is tantamount to abolishing the USA.
That is their end goal.
I agree...They definitely want to abolish the USA as we know it.
Right now they only obey the laws that they want to and insist everyone else obey unconstitutional laws that they’ve pushed through.
Sandy reminds me of Cynthia McKinney
Yes, she does. Haven’t even thought about that ditz in quite awhile, nice that she’s gone.
