ICYMI: Rashida Tlaib Officially Loses It, Set to Go On Hunger Strike to 'Shut Down ICE'

Democrat Rep. Rashida Tlaib keeps getting so much attention because she keeps saying silly things.

If she’s not wearing the Palestinian flag or meeting with anti-Israel activists she’s introducing articles of impeachment against Trump.

If she’s not caught on video saying “impeach that motherf*****” Trump, she’s claiming all members of her party are racist.

It’s kind of never-ending with this one.

Now, Tlaib is saying she’ll go on a hunger strike in order to get ICE to “shut down.” Oh, and she wants her fans to follow her lead.

From Free Beacon:

Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D., Mich.) urged her supporters to join her in a hunger strike to push for action to “shut down” U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), arguing the radical push to abolish ICE can’t be achieved by Congress.

Tlaib, headlining a Detroit fundraiser this past weekend for the Michigan Coalition for Human Rights, complained of colleagues who are constantly “policing” what she says and lack willingness to embrace bold stands such as abolishing ICE. She called on her activist audience to join her in a hunger strike at the border.

Tlaib noted, “It’s going to take movements outside the halls of Congress.

She added, “I want you all to shut them down, we can shut them down. Don’t wait for this Congress to act, shut them down.

Concluding, “I know what they’re going to say, they’ll go, ‘What do you mean Rashida?’ Well I’ll tell you. There are some people that are using hunger strike, all these other things, going to the border, and I plan to.

He is now considering an official “immigration czar.”

From AP News:

The Trump administration is considering bringing on a “border” or “immigration czar” to coordinate the president’s immigration policies across various federal agencies, according to three people familiar with the discussions.

President Donald Trump is weighing two potential candidates for the post: Former Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach and former Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli — two far-right conservatives with strong views on immigration, according to the people, who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the conversations publicly.

POTUS warned in early April that he may shut down the southern border entirely.

His tweet:

Mexico is doing NOTHING to help stop the flow of illegal immigrants to our Country. They are all talk and no action. Likewise, Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador have taken our money for years, and do Nothing. The Dems don’t care, such BAD laws. May close the Southern Border!

A new caravan is apparently forming in Honduras. Reportedly, 20,000 or so people are set to take part in the march up to America.

They call it the “mother of all caravans.”
