apparently at some point in the past month, AOC removed all mentions of "abolish ICE" from her website

electoralism is a dead end

removed from her immigration platform*

apparently she still has it in a corner under her women's rights platform, as opposed to the headline billing it got under immigration

@SeanAloysiusOBrien b-b-b-but how is she supposed to advance her career if she is tied to unworkable policies???????????????????

@SeanAloysiusOBrien attacking electoralism is fine and correct, just, please, attack factually; there are plenty of facts available.


pretty weird decision to change the immigration platform from this to this

the first is decidedly radical, the second is something you could get approved by the DNC

whether it's a complete removal or shuttling it off into the corner, I still think this is pretty concerning

@SeanAloysiusOBrien @millenomi I’m a little confused. How can payroll taxes be withheld from paychecks which legally can’t exist?

@ASIC @SeanAloysiusOBrien you owe the IRS for financial activity, even if that activity is illegal.

@millenomi @SeanAloysiusOBrien The article says that undocumented immigrants are paying those taxes, that they actually are being withheld. Wouldn’t that mean the feds know where these people are? And could catch them at any time with the help of local law enforcement?
