AOC calls on ICE “to end the carceral approach to immigration”

Monday, Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez tweeted “Recently, we led 34 colleagues in calling on ICE to end the carceral approach to immigration.”

“We need humane and just immigration policies that aim to end mass incarceration, criminalization and deportation of immigrants,” she added.

In her letter to Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas and ICE Director Tae Johnson, AOC contends ICE  “not provide adequate protection for the liberty interests of recently arrived immigrations seeking humanitarian relief and further criminalizes and dehumanizes immigration by relying on the discriminatory criminal legal system””
