Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) took to Twitter Saturday where she sparked outrage after publicly advising illegal immigrants how to evade deportation from Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).
She also included an infographic full of advice for illegals while asking her followers to share the information widely and make sure “your neighbors have it”.
Ocasio-Cortez wrote in a post that listed several major cities where ICE raids were expected to start, “Warning: The Trump admin is expected to begin ICE raids across the country TOMORROW, targeting people for round up.”
“NOW is the time for us to come together: – Check in w/ your neighbors – Share “Know Your Rights” info – If you see ICE, report to @UNITEDWEDREAM 1-844-363-1423,” she added.
United We Dream is a Soros-funded immigrant advocacy group whose current executive director, Greisa Martinez Rosas, said in 2017 that “white supremacist politicians” have “one goal,” to “push all people of color in jails, and into detention camps, off the voter rolls and out of our country,” reported Daily Caller.
Ocasio-Cortez posted another tweet from United We Dream that included an infographic full of advice for illegals, including “do not open doors.” (Continued Below)
“Please share this info widely & make sure your neighbors have it,” Ocasio-Cortez continued. “If your home can be a safe space or haven for others, let your neighbors and community know – even if it’s just to relax in the stress of this time. Plan, prepare, + protect our neighbors.”
President Trump promised earlier in the week to begin mass deportations proceedings against illegals currently residing in the United States and even doubled-down Saturday morning, but he later agreed to delay the actions in an effort to find a “solution” with Congress. (Continued Below)

Twitterverse was quick to respond back to Ocasio-Cortez for not upholding the law, but to encourage aiding and abetting:
You’re sick! You’re aiding and abetting known criminals who have a court order to be deported, but cry that “President Trump broke the law?” Get over yourself you dimwitted hypocrite. You won’t be re-elected. #NobrainsAOC #PandersForVotes #Lawbreaker #ToddlerInCongress

You are encouraging law breaking
— 2phone (@darringray) June 22, 2019
I am an immigrant and I support law and order. People breaking laws is unacceptable. If you don’t like this – create laws through our democracy and let law enforcement enforce them. I cannot imagine why is this even an matter of debate?
— Angel N Devil (@AngelNDevil2) June 22, 2019
I can’t be silent anymore. They are not “rounding” people up. They are issuing warrants and arresting people that already have deportation orders.

Why are you aiding and abetting illegal immigrants?
It is a crime to enter this country Illegally and if you do, you should expect to be deported.
— Harry Cherry (@TheHarryCherry) June 22, 2019
If they are here ILLEGALLY then they need to go back to where they came from! There are proper channels they can go through to become a citizen and be in the US legally. But that would cost Dems votes.

Thank you for confirming you are opposed to our law enforcement community. Mask is off.
— AirborneHeel (@abnheel) June 22, 2019
This is wild. She’s actually publicly declaring that she is willing to go against the law in order to virtue signal… even the bots aren’t liking this tweet..
— derek schwartz (@derek_mafs) June 22, 2019
I agree, you should bring these people together in one place.
Then phone ICE
many thanks AOC

Is there any way we can deport @AOC ? She is causing more issues and creating no solutions.

Fear mongering and advising people to harbor felons….good call.

What about american citizens wanted for crimes? Should they have sanctuary from police going to their homes with warrants? #AskingForThoseWithBrains
— Tony Bruno (@TonyBrunoShow) June 22, 2019
Didn’t you take a vow to defend and support our laws? You are telling people to commit a felony, and you are committing one yourself. You should be supporting our front line law enforcement officers!
— Keith Barrett (@KeithBarrett) June 23, 2019
Isn’t this obstruction of justice?
— Kyle Johnston (@xxkylejxx) June 22, 2019
The administration is upholding the law. We cannot continue to support people who are here illegally. It’s just too much and is costing the US billions of dollars.

Targeting people? You mean targeting ILLEGAL immigrants? The ones who BROKE the law? Who the hell are you representing? Sure is NOT #Americans! #WalkAway #DemocratsAreDestroyingAmerica #MAGA #WWG1WGA #Trump2020 #KAG #VoteRedToSaveAmerica #USA #IllegalAliens #illegals

How in the hell do we sitting members of Congress & governors aiding & abetting criminals, openly, & nothing happens to them? You should be expelled from Congress for this.
— Mrs. Dirty Driver (@guntotinchick) June 22, 2019
This is in violation of your oath of office. Advocating for anyone to blatantly break the law which you took an oath to uphold. You need to resign.

Harboring criminals is a federal crime.
— tommy blatt (@shortyblatt) June 23, 2019
You’re encouraging citizens to harbor illegal immigrants? That’s a felony. And no, we won’t report @ICEgov sightings. We will, however, report sightings of illegal immigrants. #ILLEGALIMMIGRANTS #DemocratsHateAmerica
— Crystal 🇺🇸 (@CrystalG2007) June 23, 2019
As a law enforcement agent with probable cause, I have the right to take the door down, but go ahead, advise to not open the door. @AOC you make it dangerous for everyone, but enjoy your DC air conditioned office while giving unsolicited advice.
