AOC, like many other leftists, is outraged that Trump would send in federal law enforcement to end the surge of crime in major cities.
Exposing her shocking lack of knowledge, she called federal agents “secret police”:
The United States of America should not have secret police.
Clearly, AOC expects her audience not to know what secret police are. She (wrongly) claims that unidentified agents are “swooping” in to apprehend peaceful demonstrators.
She wants to pass a bill so that federal law enforcement will not be able to end this tide of chaos.
But Trump’s Border Patrol Chief stepped in and drove her arguments into the ground:
.@CBPMarkMorgan shuts down antifa lie that DHS officers are “unidentified.” Every officer is identified clearly on the front, back & sides. They no longer display a name because of doxing that endangers their families. Instead, they wear an ID patch. https://t.co/OEk9nfCOHj pic.twitter.com/gVu3gBJclU

The media sat back for weeks and all but encouraged rioters who burned churches and vandalized government buildings.
But when Trump sent in federal law enforcement to save lives, the left accused them of being “unidentified” agents.
A simple look at existing footage proves that wrong.
Every agent is wearing gear with a badge of their department on the front, back, and sides. These are not “secret police,” but federal officers upholding the law.
The president is obligated to uphold law and order when local leaders fail to do their job.
Democrats like AOC seem to applaud violence and destruction—and deliberately try to get in the way of those who are trying to save lives.
“Secret police” violate the human rights of citizens by monitoring their communications and arresting them without cause.
Nothing like that is allowed in the United States. And nothing like that is happening now.
These officers are clearly identified by their badges. They are obeying the law to stop those who blatantly break the law to spread chaos and fear.
Perhaps AOC needs to brush up on the Constitution, before she tweets again?
- AOC accused federal law enforcement of being secret police.
- Border Patrol Chief proved every officer wears identification badges on their gear.
- Trump sent in federal officers after Democrats refused to end weeks of riots.
