Rashida Tlaib Calls for Hunger Strikes to ‘Shut Down ICE’


WFB: 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.

“It’s going to take movements outside the halls of Congress,” Tlaib told the crowd, according to video captured by America Rising, a conservative group.

“I want you all to shut them down, we can shut them down,” Tlaib said to applause. “Don’t wait for this Congress to act, shut them down.”

“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.”

Tlaib’s office did not initially respond to a request for comment on the call for hunger strike and whether any planning was ongoing.

In a Thursday email, Tlaib’s communications director Denzel McCampbell said Tlaib was not actually calling for a hunger strike, but rather stating that “she knows of folks who have done” them.  more here

  1. Good. They’ll all starve.

    Omar and this woman is deranged on a scale we have never OPENLY seen in a politican in our county.

    It’s hammer time.

  2. Hunger strikes have never effected me or my opinions at all.

    I don’t care a bit if someone chooses to go hungry, it isn’t my choice and it isn’t my problem when they do.

  3. Every time she says something, one of her handlers say, ‘well… uh, no she didn’t mean that… literally…’ or offer another suggestion which she didn’t actually make.
    As if she would take off the feed bad for anybody, anyway.
    She has to keep up her shtrumgth for… I dunno.

  4. She has a son. It remains amazing how any man would stick his pecker in this maggot and manage an orgasm, let alone an erection.

    But then again, look where she’s from.

  5. I want to see her on a REAL HUNGER STRIKE. THAT MEANS NO FOOD OF ANY KIND AND A LIMITED AMOUNT A WATER PER DAY SAY 1-2 OUNCES. Then lets see how long she lasts. If she does that we should start a pool to see how long she lasts.
