Ben Stein said Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez doesn’t know her ass from her elbow, and I thought that was kind of rough until I saw this: Video of OAC at a George Soros funded event saying we need to abolish Homeland Security and the agency in charge of deporting MS-13 gangs, drug dealers, rapists, murderers and other criminals because… wait for it: “We are a nation of laws.”
You heard it correctly: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), and Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) called for an end to funding the Department of Homeland Security during a MoveOn.org event Thursday.
Owe you an apology Ben – to watch this clownbaiting at the event, scroll down.
“Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), and Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) called for an end to funding the Department of Homeland Security during a MoveOn.org event Thursday.
Ocasio-Cortez took to the microphone to fight for the rights of those immigrating here illegally.
“This is one of the most urgent moral issues and crises that we have in America right now,” Ocasio-Cortez said to a small crowd of people and reporters gathered outside of the U.S. Capitol. “This is not a political issue. Children dying in detention centers should not be a partisan concern. It should be a universal concern for every American in the United States.”
Ocasio-Cortez then insisted that President Trump was lying when he said he liked “legal immigration.”
“He said and spoke of the idea that he likes, quote-unquote, legal immigration. But that is a lie. The president does not like any form of immigration. He has been cutting down and imposing restrictions on legal forms, on the diversity visa lottery, on family unification, and so on.”
We are LIVE with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ayanna Pressley, Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar, United We Dream, and families who've been impacted by Trump’s racist mass deportation agenda, demanding that we reject Trump's wall & Deportation Force.via act.tv

then stated that President Trump wants to “continue to militarize and weaponize” the Department of Homeland Security and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) by requesting additional funding. She also stated that Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen “has no idea when she goes in front of a hearing how many children are dying in her own care, under her own watch.”
“We’re here to say that an agency like ICE, which repeatedly and systematically violates human rights, does not deserve a dime,” Ocasio-Cortez stated.
So.. does she know her ass from her elbow?
Rep. Omar, who has been criticized for her anti-Semitic views, then correlated her own situation in coming to America with that which she claims children are facing today.

“I cry every time I see a little girl standing in the desert waiting to get processed into this country because I remember what that felt like,” Omar cried..
Boo hoo – you’re in Congress, woman – how have you been mistreated again?
Omar then claimed those immigrating here illegally are “detained and tortured.”
“In the United States, people are not welcomed that way. They are separated and processed, they are detained and tortured, and we can’t continue to allow it to happen, at least not under our watch.”
“In this Congress, we cannot have a budget that does not further our values. We have a value of upholding human rights. We have a value of welcoming immigrants. We have a value of tolerance and acceptance,” Omar said. “We can not lose it today to a president and administration that is morally corrupt.”
Omar then went on the attack of the Trump administration and claimed that they only “see dollars.”
“They don’t see people. They see dollars. They see campaigns. They see cheers. They see rallies,” Omar claimed. “We see humans because most of us have been invisible in our communities.”
Rep. Tlaib spoke briefly after Omar and also called for a cut to DHS funds as she broke into tears.
“I’m really tired of us sitting back and saying, ‘Well, we gotta get the information.’ Guess what? We already know people died.” She went on, “That should be enough for us to act and to say that no more money towards an institution that is demonizing and criminalizing our immigrant neighbors. We don’t want a system that basically has taken away the core values of the American dream.”
Rep. Pressley stated that those in attendance at the event were there to “draw a line in the sand.”
“We are here to draw a line in the sand, in the name of love and in the name of justice,” Pressley said. “We have a task put before this institution to negotiate a DHS package in three weeks’ time. We have an obligation to make our workers whole, to prevent another road shutdown by this administration and to demonstrate moral leadership.”
