Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the democratic socialist candidate for Congress in New York, said in a speech that the activist who confronted Jeff Flake on the Capitol elevator lives in her district and risks deportation for her activism.
“Ana Maria Archila is from our district, is from Queens. In fact, she is an immigration activist, which just goes to show intersectionality and how interwoven all of these fights are,” Ocasio-Cortez stated.
“Because she is putting everything on the line and risking deportation … not even for a direct immigration action but for the action of all survivors. And that’s how we need to be. We need to be championing the causes of our neighbors. That is what creates power and movement, coalition building,” Ocasio-Cortez said in her speech at Boston University.
Here is Ocasio-Cortez’s speech, courtesy of the College Fix:
Ana Maria Archila, one of the women who confronted Jeff Flake on the elevator at the Capitol after he said he was voting for Brett Kavanaugh, is the co-executive director for the Center for Popular Democracy and the Center for Popular Democracy Action Fund.
The Center For Popular Democracy is heavily funded by George Soros. The organization also identified Maria Gallagher to the press as the other woman confronting Flake.
Here is Ana Maria Archila on the Center for Popular Democracy website.
The Free Beacon previously reported: “George Soros is one of the largest funders to the CPD. Soros provided the CPD with $130,000 from the Foundation to Promote Open Society in 2014 and $1,164,500 in 2015. Soros provided an additional $705,000 from the Open Society Policy Center in 2016.”
Here are the three biggest funders of the CPD, according to a 2014 document. The Open Society Foundations ranks third:
“CPD’s three biggest funders are:
- Wyss Foundation
- Ford Foundation
• Open Society Foundations”

Federal Court Rules Trump Administration Can Withhold Grant Funding From Sanctuary Cities
If they won’t follow the law, they’re not getting DOJ funding.
In the latest in a round of policy victories for the Trump administration on immigration, a federal appeals court has ruled that the Department of Justice can block sanctuary cities from receiving federal grants on account of their failure to comply with federal immigration law.
Former Attorney Jeff Sessions announced the initiative in 2017, that restricts sanctuary cities and states such as San Francisco and Philadelphia from federal grants. The liberal local governments will be prevented from receiving funding from the Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant Program.
Predictably, liberal state and local governments turned to the court system with hopes of coercing the federal government to fund their law enforcement agencies, even as they openly refused cooperation with ICE, releasing dangerous criminal illegals onto the streets in spite of ICE requests that they instead be placed into federal custody.
After an initial victory for the sanctuary states and cities in a lower district court, the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals ruled Wednesday that the Department of Justice does have the authority to deny federal grant funding to scofflaw cities and municipalities.
The ruling allows the DOJ to withhold grant funding not only from cities, but states that flout federal immigration law, as well. Sessions’ funding block to sanctuary entities includes six states: Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Rhode Island, Virginia and Washington.
Cities that flout immigration law and cooperation with ICE won’t simply be left to their own devices, as well, even as they lose federal funding. ICE is buffing up their presence in some of America’s most flagrant sanctuary cities, bringing in an elite team of Customs and Border Patrol personnel to assist in the arrests of dangerous illegal alien criminals.
