The Communists Behind the “Abolish ICE,” “Occupy ICE” Agitation
Who’s leading the “Abolish ICE,” “No Borders” agitation? Don't expect the establishment media to mention that it's the Revolutionary Communist Party, Communist Party USA, Workers World Party, Democratic Socialists of America, Antifa anarcho-communists, the National Lawyers Guild, and the American Civil Liberties Union.
From Portland, Oregon, to Philadelphia, and from New York City to Chicago, Detroit, Los Angeles, and dozens of other “Sanctuary Cities,” the radical OccupyICE/SurroundICE/AbolishICE agitators have been waging war on America’s national security and our ability to define and defend our borders. While the attacks have centered on the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), including physical obstruction and occupation of ICE offices and harassment and doxxing of ICE employees, the real goal — as announced from numerous Leftist websites, as well as the chants and banners of protesters — is “No Borders” at all. In other words, according to the “no borders” extremists, any or all of the hundreds of millions of people worldwide who have expressed the desire to move to the United States (according to the 2012 Gallup global poll) should be free to do so — without any restrictions.
That, of course, is sheer lunacy, and is recognized as such even by many of the same Americans who succumbed to the emotive propaganda campaign of the “no borders” lobby regarding the separation of families. A Harvard-Harris Poll published this past June found that almost three-quarters (73 percent) of swing voters oppose abolishing ICE. The survey reveals that 73 percent of Independents, 59 percent of Democrats, 78 percent of Republicans, 63 percent of blacks, 50 percent of Hispanics, 68 percent of men, and 70 percent of women oppose disbanding the agency. Even 59 percent of voters who identified as having voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016 opposed the idea. The same Harvard-Harris Poll found that most voters (70 percent) also support stricter immigration enforcement.
Example: One of the most successful communist propaganda stunts for the anti-ICE, open borders campaign was carried out on July 4 by the Marxist cadres of Rise and Resist (RAR). We are referring of course, to the “heroic” scaling of Statue of Liberty by RAR activist Therese Patricia Okoumou, which caused the national monument to be shut down. That spoiled the day for thousands of visitors hoping to visit the statue on Liberty Island, but it garnered many millions of dollars worth of free, adoring publicity for the anti-ICE/no borders militants from virtually all of the establishment media, as well as the alternate far-left media.
What is Rise and Resist (RAR)? It is a “direct action” front that deploys hardened activists of the Revolutionary Communist Party (RCP), the Democratic Socialists of America, and Refuse Fascism (another direct action front for the RCP) to initiate confrontational street actions aimed at mobilizing “mass resistance.” MSNBC’s Joy Reid provided Okoumou and her RAR “comrade” Jay W. Walker with a fawning interview, while failing to mention that Walker is a well-known activist-leader in Refuse Fascism and the Revolutionary Communist Party, which glorifies mass-murdering communist dictator Mao Zedong.
