Over the past few months, Democrats have amped up their rhethoric against various law enforcement officials, especially those which pertain to immigration.

Various House caucus members are already in favor of abolishing Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). Moreover, certain left-wing presidential candidates have suggested decriminalizing the act of unlawfully crossing the United States Southern border.

House Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has taken matters a step forward. During an interview last week, the congresswoman vocalized her support for doing away with the Department of Homeland Security altogether.

Why Does AOC Want to End the DHS?

Last week, Ocasio-Cortez appeared on the New Yorker Radio in order to discuss her thoughts on immigration matters. David Remnick, the host of the radio show, asked Ocasio-Cortez about whether or not she’d want to end the Department of Homeland Security.

At this point, the congresswoman admitted that she is supportive of ending the entire establishment which is the Department of Homeland Security.
