Opinion| Self-proclaimed Democratic Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez took to Twitter on Saturday to accuse United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) of raping women and injecting migrant children with “unknown substances.”

The freshman Congresswoman from New York tweeted, “If you’re mad that I think people SHOULD KNOW when Dems vote to expand ICE powers, then be mad. ICE is a dangerous agency with 0 accountability, widespread reporting of rape, abuse of power, + children dying in DHS custody. Having a D next to your name doesn’t make that right.”

Then she blamed ICE for the deaths of children who had been forced by their parents to travel through the desert in scorching temperatures to enter the United States.

She tweeted, “Again, I didn’t threaten a primary. I was upset that 26 Dems forced the other 200+ to vote for a pro-ICE provision at the last minute without warning. Because I think an agency that pins children down + forcibly injects them w/ antipsychotic drugs shouldn’t be given more power.”

Former ICE Director Tom Homan was extremely unhappy with Ocasio-Cortez’s comments, and made an appearance on Fox News’ “Fox and Friends” to talk about her accusations.

Homan stated, “She says we’re dangerous? What’s dangerous is a congresswoman who doesn’t know fact from fiction! You have a congresswoman who doesn’t know how to tell the truth. I forgot more on this subject than she will ever know in her two whole months of being a congresswoman.”

“She said three things. She said ICE was holding children down and injecting them with anti-psychotic drugs. Are you kidding me? That allegation was made against HHS. A different agency in a different department and she failed to mention those accusations were unsubstantiated. That was not ICE,” he continued.

He explained, “As far as raping women, sexually abusing women? ICE rescued 310 women from traffickers last year… We save women, we don’t rape them… I’m sick and tired of ICE agents being accused of stuff. As far as she said children dying in ICE custody. A child has NEVER DIED in ICE custody EVER! Give me one name of a child that died in ICE custody! Two children died in custody of the Border Patrol and it wasn’t their fault. They did everything they could… So this lady, this congresswoman needs to get her facts straight!.. I’m sick of this!”
