Recently, Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez attempted to slam ICE while simultaneously taking a jab at conservatives for their stance on abortion, however, things did not go as planned for the self-styled socialist upstart.
Citing the death of a prematurely-born migrant child in US detention, Ocasio-Cortez sarcastically stated, “I’m sure EVERY state passing abortion bans will also be prosecuting ICE officials for the deaths of premature babies that happen in their custody?”
Ocasio-Cortez went on to add, “Since they intend on jailing doctors, surely they’ll jail ICE for the same thing.”

Right? Since they intend on jailing doctors, surely they’ll jail ICE for the same thing. https://t.co/7kfb8n6pI1

While the young congresswoman may bill herself as a “pro” when it comes to social media, her remarks did not sit well with commenters, who admonished Ocasio-Cortez for her comparison.
Wow – so you’re acknowledging a baby has value & shld be protected after birth AND before birth? Because last I saw, you were tweeting the talking points of the abortion industry & cheering for the killing of babies in the womb as a “right.” Blind, tragic hypocrisy.

I need you to walk to a mirror and say everything you just tweeted out loud to yourself.
It won’t make sense to you either.
To even remotely try to contrast this horrific incident the same as willfully choosing to murder an unborn baby….is outrageous!

Here’s an idea, STOP breaking the law by bringing children and pregnant mothers on these death marches, only to blame the country they are attacking for their maladies?
There is one way to enter this country and that is LEGALLY!🇺🇸

ICE officers don’t intend to kill the babies of pregnant women. A stillbirth is a tragedy no one celebrates.
Abortionists intentionally kill the babies of pregnant women. They kill 2700 babies daily.
And you and your political friends proudly celebrate it.

Did ICE officials remove the baby with forceps ensuring its death? If so, I join you in supporting prosecution.

There are 3000 abortions performed a day and you pick this for your argument? You are not smarter than a fifth grader.

It’s interesting to note that when it suits their purposes, the left suddenly seem to care for the rights of the unborn!
