Trouble in Socialist Paradise? Bernie’s Camp Reportedly Ripped AOC Over ICE Comments

Is Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s calls for people to willfully aid in illegal immigrants’ efforts to circumvent law enforcement officials too extreme even for Bernie Sanders? aoc ice

A report from Vanity Fair seems to suggest that just might be the case.

A column on Tuesday suggests that Team Bernie was not pleased with AOC following an Iowa campaign rally last month in which she continued to call for the abolishment of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency, while also suggesting supporters should ‘tip-off’ illegals to their presence.

“Organizing is about tipping people off if you start to see that ICE and CBP are in communities, to try and keep people safe,” the New York socialist said in encouraging people to blatantly break the law.

Do you support Joe Biden as president?


Bernie’s Camp Not Pleased aoc ice

Vanity Fair reports that Bernie’s campaign manager, Faiz Shakir, had to text the campaign manager for AOC to express his displeasure with the performance.

“Ocasio-Cortez’s comments about the abolition of [ICE] and Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) were also seen by some within the Sanders campaign as going too far,” one source familiar with the messages said.

AOC’s extreme rhetoric was seen as “straying from Sanders’s stance on the issues [by] encouraging people not to cooperate with law enforcement agencies.”

Another thing that apparently irked Shakir – the fact that she didn’t mention his boss by name.

“The Sanders campaign was miffed that Ocasio-Cortez didn’t mention Sanders by name when she closed out a campaign event at the University of Iowa,” the report stated.

That said, of course the attention seeker is going to make a campaign event about her – she’s angling for a Senate seat or even possibly the presidency.



AOC’s calls for illegals and pro-illegal activists to not cooperate with law enforcement were shredded by former ICE Director Thomas Homan.

“She says you want to tip off the community to keep the community safe, that’s what ICE is doing,” Homan argued, adding he “can’t believe she can stand up on stage and make a statement like that and not have any repercussions from the House Ethics Committee.”

Well, the House is fully on board with open borders and letting criminals run around unchecked, so …

“First of all, it’s an incredibly stupid statement she made,” he continued, “which doesn’t surprise me, because she’s about as far from smart as anybody could possibly be, but what she said is dangerous.”

Sanders, though supposedly dismayed by AOC’s comments, is likewise a fan of open borders, and has called for breaking up both CBP and ICE, as well as the full demilitarization of the southern border.

Decriminalizing illegal immigration by removing the means to police it is no less extreme than “tipping people off” when law enforcement tries to do their job.
