lock her up AOC

On Saturday, Democrat Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez issued tweets calling on supporters help illegal immigrants avoid deportation and work against ICE. She sent this tweet out before the president announced he was going to give the Democrats two weeks grace to quickly negotiate simple changes to asylum and loopholes.

But it doesn’t soften the impact of AOC calling for people to break the law, and offering them advice regarding how to do it:

“Warning: The Trump admin is expected to begin ICE raids across the country TOMORROW, targeting people for roundup,” she tweeted.  “NOW is the time for us to come together.”  She also called on supporters to report the presence of ICE to United We Dream and suggested they open their homes to those in the country illegally.

 

Twitter erupted with criticism, seemingly from both sides of the aisle:

She’s been in Congress for less than a year and already forgot the oath she took.

In other words, put her apartment where her mouth is. Hey…that might be a great idea! Maybe her illegal guest can explain to her what a garbage disposal is used for. 

 

This person sent out directions that supersede AOC’s—well, at least directions that many of the above seem to want used to replace those of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

And of course, the all-important “If you see something say something!”

I am not a lawyer, nor have I ever played one on TV.  For those who have knowledge of the law, could you please comment and let us know if AOC’s tweet falls into free speech or aiding and abetting criminals, as the folks above believe.
