Texas Republican Congressman Dan Crenshaw appeared on Fox News to discuss Ilhan Omar’s Antisemitism and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s statements against ICE. Crenshaw slammed AOC statement calling ICE racist for enforcing the law.
AOC tweeted, “If we’re so concerned about implied tropes, why aren’t we concerned about this one?”
AOC continued, “Where was the concern last week when 26 Dems voted for a GOP amendment to expand ICE powers rooted in the racist + false trope that Latino immigrants are more dangerous than US born citizens?”
Crenshaw stated, “There is a lot there. Even if she actually believes what she is saying, that has nothing to do with condemning anti-Semitism, right? Two things can be true at once, okay. Even if she believes this craziness.”
He continued, “The reality is that enforcing the law is not racist, okay? Asking ICE to report when an illegal immigrant is trying to buy a weapon is not racist. That’s just enforcing our laws and I think most Americans want us to enforce our laws. We want to feel like our rule of law is working out, that we’re are a sovereign country we can connect and protect our borders.”
