AOC Claims ICE Is ‘Dangerous Agency’ Full Of Rape

Ocasio-Cortez found another way to disparage ICE.

AOC ICE Rapists

Freshman Democrat House Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez today tweeted that Immigration and Customs Enforcement is a “dangerous agency” with “widespread reporting” of rape.

Ocasio-Cortez made this claim while justifying her decision to publicly list Democrats who voted in ways she did not approve when it came to funding and expanding the power of ICE. Multiple Democrats are criticizing the beleaguered representative for this list of names, some calling it “Nixonian.”

While defending her decision on Twitter, Ocasio-Cortez said that any Democrats who refuse to gut the “dangerous agency with 0 accountability, widespread reporting of rape, abuse of power” and “children dying” in its custody.

While actual data suggests the instances of sexual assault and other forms of abuse, while intolerable and worthy of condemnation, do not happen more frequently than in regular prisons, Ocasio-Cortez quoted an unverified report by CNN to prove her point.

Big League Politics research reveals Ocasio-Cortez to be mistaken at best, or flagrantly wrong at worst. In reality, about 1,500 sexual assault allegations were made by ICE detainees from 2012-2018, and the total number of detainees peaked at nearly 45,000 in 2018. This means a little under 3 per cent of the population made allegations, some of which were not found to be accurate.

These numbers are on par with those of regular American prisons that are not exclusive to ICE detainees, where about 1.5 per cent of the 2.3 million strong population of incarcerated individuals in the United States have made allegations of sexual assault.

President Trump: Best Pro-Life President Ever?

Published

on

Karen Cross, the Political Director for National Right to Life, praised President Donald Trump for his pro-life efforts during his administration.

At Life News, she wrote “President Donald J. Trump and his Administration have established more pro-life policies than any other president in history.

Ever.”

The National Right to Life Committee endorsed president Trump’s re-election bid on July 4, 2019.

That day, Carol Tobias, the president of National Right to Life, said:

“As our nation celebrates Independence Day, we are proud to endorse the only presidential candidate who stands for the unalienable right to life. From his first day in office, President Trump and his Administration have been dedicated to advancing policies that protect the fundamental right to life for the unborn, the elderly, and the medically dependent and disabled.”

One of the Trump administration’s first actions as president was to restore the Mexico City Policy, which bars tax funds from going to organizations that carry out abortions or lobby to bring pro-abortion laws to host countries. Trump followed up by expanding this policy to keep $9 billion in foreign aid from being used to bankroll the global abortion industry.

The Trump Administration also slashed funding to the United Nations Population Fund due to that agency’s involvement with China’s forced abortion program.

President Trump originally pledged “to veto any legislation that weakens current pro-life federal policies and laws, or that encourages the destruction of innocent human life at any state.”

According to Cross, President Trump vowed to sign the following pro-life legislative items:

  • The Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act;
  • The Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act; and
  • The No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act.

The National Right to Life Political Director emphasized the importance of the 2020 elections. She stated that this election “will determine who appoints justices to the U.S. Supreme Court and numerous federal judges to lower courts.”

Having Republican control of the Senate will allow Trump to continue to nominate conservative judges.

So far, Trump has nominated 192 federal judges, which include U.S. Supreme Court Justices Brett Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch, who were ultimately confirmed by the U.S. Senate.

Having Nancy Pelosi out of the picture as House Speaker will allow for pro-life legislation to actually move out of the House.

All in all, pro-lifers’ best bet for any type of policy change will be for Republicans to gain control of all three branches of government.
