(AbsoluteNews.com) – On May 14, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and 33 other House Democrats demanded the federal government change the way it’s enforcing the immigration laws. In a letter to Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas and ICE Director Tae D. Johnson, the representatives said the enforcement procedures for the illegals coming into the US to seek asylum are dehumanizing and criminalizing migrants. They further objected to the detainment of those with “aggravated felonies,” like gang members, saying it’s a “relic of the racist War on Drugs.”
Recently, we led 34 colleagues in calling on ICE to end the carceral approach to immigration.

Former acting ICE Director, Tom Homan, spoke to “Fox & Friends” on May 19 about the immigration crisis and AOC’s ridiculous comments about enforcement. He said the congresswoman is wrong “every time she opens her mouth on immigration.” She supports an open borders agenda just like President Joe Biden.
Homan went on to criticize the president over the border crisis. He pointed to the low ICE arrests as proof that the administration is failing. Unfortunately, it seems the failures on immigration are across the board in the Democratic Party which means America is less safe with them in charge.
