Did you know that the Department of Homeland Security – created after the 9/11/01 attacks that killed almost 3,000 of us, terrorized the country, and showed that we desperately needed to protect ourselves against international terrorism, should never have been created at all?
And that goes for Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) as well?
If not, then you haven’t been following Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY…and, possibly Mars). Because that is exactly what she just told us.
From Rebecca Morin’s article at USA Today:
In an interview with the New Yorker, the progressive lawmaker said she believes the core structure of ICE and the DHS “are extrajudicial, that they lack effective oversight” and “it is baked into the core foundational structure of these agencies.”
When asked whether she would get rid of DHS, she said: “I think so.”
“I think we need to undo a lot of the egregious mistakes that the Bush Administration did,” she said. “I feel like it is a very qualified and supported position, at least in terms of evidence and in terms of being able to make the argument that we never should have created D.H.S., in the early 2000s.”
Well, there you go. The world according to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. No immigration enforcement and no homeland security. Just come in everyone, one and all, whoever you are, wherever you’re from and whatever your motives. Welcome, welcome, welcome.
Last night, Karl Rove – who was with President Bush when the news broke that the New York’s World Trade Center towers were being attacked – had this to say about Ocasio-Cortez’s comment:
“I think it’s moronic stupid naive and dumb”
In my opinion, Mr. Rove is wrong…because he left out “idiotic”.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is in the exact niche that causes the most damage to herself and to her party: i. e. she is someone of limited knowledge, limited understanding and limited vision beyond the ideological crap that she’s been filled with, but so lionized by media that she thinks everything she says is a nugget of brilliance.
And the attempts by Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi to shut Ocasio-Cortez down at least a little, have drawn nothing but attacks by her against Pelosi – including the dreaded, all-purpose, this-ends-the-conversation, “racism” one. And, not to leave it at that, she has accused Pelosi of sexism as well.
