Following her stunning primary victory over Rep. Joe Crowley (D-NY), Democrat Alexandria Oscasio-Cortez claimed on CNN on Wednesday morning that Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents are committing “human rights abuses” at “black sites” on the border.

CNN’s Poppy Harlow first asked Oscasio-Cortez if America needs a secure border. The Democrat responded, saying that the United States needs a safe border so immigrants can be “safe in passage.”

Oscasio-Cortez moved onto discussing her “Abolish ICE” platform, calling the agency “extrajudicial.”

“That is why they’re able to get away with black sites at our border with the separation of children,” she said. “We are committing human rights abuses on this border in separating children from their families.”

The Democrat called for a replacement for ICE, and she explained that children detention centers constitute “black sites.”
