'The reality is that enforcing the law is not racist'
Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) called out Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) for her "craziness" on accusing the Department of Immigration and Customs Enforcement of racism.
Crenshaw was speaking to Martha MacCallum on Fox News about a tweet from Ocasio-Cortez that criticizes Republicans over the reaction to statements from Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.).
"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?" Ocasio-Cortez tweeted.
"Wow. There is a lot there," responded Crenshaw.
"Even if she actually believes what she is saying, that has nothing to do with condemning anti-Semitism, right?" he explained. "Two things can be true at once, okay. Even if she believes this craziness.
"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," he continued.
"That's just enforcing our laws and I think most Americans want us to enforce our laws," Crenshaw concluded. "We want to feel like our rule of law is working out, that we're a sovereign country we can connect and protect our borders."
