NYT Says Dems Don’t Want Open Borders Hours After ‘Abolish ICE’ Candidate Wins

Apparently the Democratic base doesn’t read the Times, choosing a far-left “Abolish ICE” candidate to unseat a member of the party’s establishment.

NYT Says Dems Don’t Want Open Borders Hours After ‘Abolish ICE’ Candidate Wins

“No, Democrats Don’t Want ‘Open Borders,’” The New York Times headline told its readers, just hours after an “Abolish ICE” candidate took out Rep. Joe Crowley (D-NY) in a primary. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez beat Crowley in a surprise result, after running on a far-left campaign platform.

The Democratic base apparently didn’t get the message from the Times’ Linda Qiu, who wrote that President “Trump is grossly exaggerating Democrats’ positions when he conflates their opposition to his signature campaign promise and immigration priorities as ‘open borders.’”

“There is no evidence that [Democrats] ‘want anybody,’ including MS-13, to enter the United States freely,” she added.

Someone should tell Ocasio-Cortez. In a Wednesday appearance on CNN, she argued that America should secure its southern border – for those who want to cross illegally into the United States.

The Democrat also accused the United States of committing “human rights abuses” on the border, saying ICE is running “black sites.”

Qiu argued that Democratic leaders’ support of some border security measures is evidence of their commitment to securing the southern border. But Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer has preemptively scuttled any attempts at a bipartisan immigration compromise.
