Democratic Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is instructing her followers to defy federal immigration enforcement and help harbor illegals to resist United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement deportation orders.
Taking to Twitter, the New York Democrat tweeted “Warning: The Trump admin is expected to begin ICE raids across the country TOMORROW, targeting people for a round-up.”
“Ocasio-Cortez wrote in a post that linked to a tweet by Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services (RAICES), a Texas immigration legal services provider, that listed several major cities where ICE raids were expected to start,” the Daily Caller reports.
As Twitchy reported earlier, President Trump tweeted Saturday that he was delaying by two weeks the ICE deportation process“to see if the Democrats and Republicans can get together and work out a solution to the Asylum and Loophole problems at the Southern Border.”
That would mean Congress would actually have to do something other than tweet. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez tweeted a couple of hours before President Trump announced his delay that citizens should 1) report ICE sightings to United We Dream, which has the #AbolishICE hashtag in its bio, and 2) make their luxury D.C. apartments sanctuary spaces for illegal aliens.
