Even as U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents raid the home of a true-to-life Nazi collaborator in Democratic congressional nominee Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s district.
Even as the self-avowed democratic socialist calls for ICE to be abolished.’
Now a frail old man who may be the last known Nazi collaborator living in the U.S., was arrested by ICE agents and will be deported to Germany.
More from ABC News:
Justice Department officials say Palij served as an armed guard at a death camp in Nazi-occupied Poland and later lied to American immigration officials about his role in those atrocities when he entered the U.S. after the war.
To be clear, the deportation was at the behest of President Trump, as US ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell explained in an appearance on Fox News.
An alleged real life Nazi being detained while Ocasio-Cortez rails on about make believe Nazis, as the left often characterizes ICE agents.
A characterization she encourages when outlandishly claiming that ICE is running “black sites” at the border, and falsely declaring that the agency tasked with enforcing immigration laws has a bed quota, being “required to fill 34,000 beds with detainees every single night.”
Townhall’s Katie Pavlich couldn’t help but note the irony of Ocasio-Cortez calling for ICE to be abolished as they remove a war crimes suspect from the district she’ll soon represent.

Newsmax TV host John Cardillo made a similar observation:
The Nazi war criminal deported by @realDonaldTrump lived in Jackson Heights, Queens.
NY’s 14th Congressional District. @Ocasio2018’s District.
She wants to abolish ICE and remains silent on this deportation.

Here’s a quick sampling of other responses from Twitter:
It’s been 6 hours and still no statement from @Ocasio2018 about the Nazi criminal living in Queens that Trump’s ICE just deported

#AlexandriaOcasioCortez lacks the depth to debate big issues. Her rebuff of @benshapiro & retreat to sexist idioms, was self preservation. Those searching for the ‘next big thing’ should find one packaged a little less nicely & with a bit more staying power.

Wait, how can this be? I have heard from tons of people on the left that Trump is a Nazi, why on earth would he deport one of his own people??!?? Why isn’t he giving that dude back his citizenship and inviting him over for a State dinner and pinning medals on his chest?

Left: Trump is a Nazi
Trump: deport an actual Nazi

Imagine that … Trump the facist deported a Nazi.

Actual nazis are probably okay. It's the Americans that believe in the Bill of Rights that are offensive to the communist left…. https://t.co/q1mlHtQMdV

An actual Nazi was deported. Trump succeeded where previous leaders have failed. For those who survived the Nazi regime & families of, I know this is not justice & that would be better, I am just sorry to know this brings up the past. https://t.co/WfIGZfUPTN

Chances are she’s about as ‘informed’ about this war criminal & the Holocaust as she is about economics & international relations. If she spoke the jig would be up – again.

I wonder if she “knocked on his door” for his vote?
