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”
Arrests at U.S Southern Border Surged 40% in Month of June
They’re infiltrating the borders again.
Arrest of illegal aliens at the U.S-Mexico border surged by 40% in the month of June, suggesting that human traffickers and border crossers are seeking to infiltrate the borders of the United States once again after a lull during the coronavirus pandemic.
Acting Customs and Border Patrol Chief Mark Morgan called the increase in border crossings concerning. He described a danger to public health from the free movement of aliens across the southern border, citing the rise in crossings as a need for a border wall. “It is imperative that we continue to build the border wall system and enforce CDC policies aimed at protecting the health of Americans.”
Border arrests during the coronavirus pandemic had been the lowest in number in at least a decade, as the pandemic in the United States and Mexico largely placed the illegal movements of people at a halt. The Department of Homeland Security has also implemented special ‘expulsion’ procedures to quickly return illegal aliens to their countries of origin without involving the byzantine and slow-moving immigration court system, which migrants often exploit with dubious claims of persecution in their home countries to claim asylum.
Seizures of hard drugs such as cocaine and fentanyl coming across the border have also increased by a significant percentage, indicating that international drug smuggling organizations are back in business after halting due to coronavirus.
State of emergency ‘expulsion’ powers afforded to CBP allows the agency to return most illegal aliens across the border within two hours.
