2018 Midterms

Socialist Nominee for U.S. Congress Wants to Impeach Trump

Published

on

After an unlikely primary win over incumbent Rep. Joe Crowley (D-NY), a socialist candidate for U.S. Congress from New York continues to toe the far-left line.

“I would support impeachment.. ultimately what we need to focus on is when people potentially break the law … that no one is above the law,” Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez told CNN. “I would support impeachment. I think that, you know, we have the grounds to do it.”

The 28-year-old congressional candidate is no stranger to radical leftist rhetoric. She built her primary campaign on it after supporting Bernie Sanders during the 2016 campaign cycle.

Among her political desires are universal healthcare, a federal jobs guarantee, “free” college for all, and the abolition of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), an organization which she has called “fascistic.” In fact, she left the campaign trail and visited Texas last weekend to protest the decades-old policy of ICE detention and “family separation” at the Southern border.

“We have families and communities here (in the 14th District) from Ecuador and Colombia, Bangladesh, Korea, Pakistan, and I see them every day, many of them are very scared about what’s going on,” she said. “With my campaign, in terms of immigration, we’re trying to say, ‘Hey, we’ve got your back.'”

Ocasio-Cortez may be popular in the 14th District of New York, but her brand of radical leftism is not popular in the mainstream. In fact, polls show that calling for Trump’s impeachment actually hurts congressional candidates.

She will face Republican Anthony Pappas in November.
