By default, that means the Left also demanded that illegals being held in those facilities also be released into the interior of the United States, effectively rendering our country’s borders moot.
As reported by Common Dreams, a Leftist news site:
Amid reports of severe abuse and neglect in the immigrant detention centers the Trump administration is running, human rights campaigners are planning hundreds of demonstrations on Tuesday to demand the closing of the prisons and the reunification of all families who have been separated by the government.
Groups that staged protests included MoveOn.org, the ACLU, the Center for Popular Democracy, and other Leftist organizations. The protests were reportedly scheduled in around 180 or so cities and towns across the U.S.
“Beginning at 12:00 pm local time and throughout the afternoon, critics of President Donald Trump’s immigration policies will assemble outside of their representatives’ offices and at other public venues for the #CloseTheCamps protests,” Common Dreams reported.
MoveOn noted: “It’s going to take all of us to close the camps.”
The protests were scheduled after Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.), Joaquin Castro (D-Texas), and Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) traveled to El Paso, Texas to visit a detention center on Monday.
As she is prone to do, Ocasio-Cortez made sure that the event was all about her getting more attention than it was about truthfully presenting factual data about the facilities to her constituents (and the American people at large). And of course, the disgustingly dishonest Washington media played its role by not calling her out or reporting correct information.
“We're talking systemic cruelty [with] a dehumanizing culture that treats them like animals,” Ocasio-Cortez said after she and her delegation claimed that migrant detainees were being denied medications, bathing facilities, and other amenities.
She even claimed that detainees were being forced to drink out of toilets.
DHS and border officials, past and present, pushed back hard on Ocasio-Cortez for blatantly lying about how migrant detainees — who, by the way, broke our laws in the first place — are being treated, Fox News reported. (Related: Obama’s DHS secretary: Cages, or whatever you call them, weren’t put in place by POTUS Trump.)
“They are not drinking out of the toilet—no Border Patrol agent is going to make anyone drink out of the toilet,” former U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) director Tom Homan said on Fox News' “America’s Newsroom” Tuesday. “It’s just ridiculous on its face.”
He noted that she was “clearly, intentionally misinforming the American public,” adding: “She’s lost all credibility.”
In particular, Homan said Ocasio-Cortez and her gaggle of Leftist ICE haters were referring to an “apparatus” that serves as a sink and toilet (separate, of course).
“You’re drinking out of the same apparatus, the same piece of equipment, but there are two separate water lines—one going to the commode, one going to the sink,” Homan said. “... [T]hey are designed that way to try to save space and make it more comfortable for the people who are in those facilities.”
The fact that the American Left wants detention facilities closed or that AOC and other Democrats are providing intentionally false information about them is nothing new. The Left simply wants open borders, period. They want to flood our country, overwhelm and then collapse our systems as part of their quest to ‘transform’ America into a giant Marxist failure.
