“Squad” Member Ayanna Pressley Compares “ICE Abuses” To “Auction Block During Slavery”


Man, the “Squad” sure knows how to use atrocities to humanity in order to push their own political agenda.

First, AOC equated ICE detention facilities to Holocaust “concentration camps.”

Now, Ayanna Pressley is igniting slavery in her own twisted way to push for the abolition of ICE by comparing the immigration authorities so-called humanitarian “abuses” to the “auction block during slavery!”

During an appearance on the leftist Pod Save America podcast, Pressley stated of ICE detention centers,

“We’re all shocked by what we see but we’ve been here before on reservations with indigenous and native people, at the auction block during slavery.”

Patriots like these Twitter users fired back at Ayanna Pressley's ridiculous analogy:

Breitbart has more to say about Ayanna Pressley's comparison of ICE tactics to slavery auctions:

Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) detention of migrants resembles “the auction block during slavery,” said Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), in an interview last Thursday on Pod Save America with Jon Lovett, a former speechwriter for Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama.

Pressley described border security measures as motivated by “cruelty,” echoing characterizations used by Democrat presidential candidates Joe Biden, Sen. Cory Booker (NJ), Sen. Kamala Harris (CA), and assorted Senate Democrats:

I didn’t buy for a second that the humanitarian crisis at the border had anything to do with a deficit of funding. When I went to the border to bear witness to this humanitarian crisis, we saw plenty of toothbrushes and toothpaste and the like, so again, the cruelty is the point. It’s simply about how you choose to dedicate and allocate those funds, and within days of that bill passing, that package passing, this so-called humanitarian aid bill I think something like three new ICE facilities were opened, and then  they were putting into play ICE raids throughout the country, and that is why throughout my campaign I called for the defunding and abolishing of ICE.

… I am not cavalier about the abolishing of any agency. There are plenty of agencies that I think are in dire need of reform, and I do that work with my team every day to hold them accountable, but an agency that is using what throughout history has been proven as one of the most effective tools of oppression, which is to separate families. We’re all shocked by what we see, but we’ve been here before on reservations with indigenous and native people, at the auction block during slavery.

“Now we are deporting children with terminal illnesses,” Pressley alleged, a false claim pushed by Biden and affiliated news media outlets, adding, “We will lift up these stories in the hopes that people will have an epiphany and some level of enlightenment and humanity, and if they don’t, we will bring the fire. That’s it.”

The Western Journal also commented:

Rep. Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts claims the “abuses” perpetrated by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency resemble the “auction block during slavery.”

While generally less vocal than her colleagues, Pressley is a member of “the squad,” a group of four freshman Democratic congresswomen who hold particularly far-left extremist views.

She made her remarks Aug. 29 on “Pod Save America,” a left-leaning political podcast, during an interview with former Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama speechwriter Jon Lovett.

“I didn’t buy for a second that the humanitarian crisis at the border had anything to do with a deficit of funding,” Pressley said, before echoing the Democratic narrative that “the cruelty is the point.”

She later made more direct accusations against ICE while defending her push to abolish the law enforcement agency.

“There are plenty of agencies that I think are in dire need of reform, and I do that work with my team every day to hold them accountable, but an agency that is using what throughout history has been proven as one of the most effective tools of oppression, which is to separate families,” she said.

Pressley did not acknowledge that those who were separated from their children had broken the law, often placing their children in danger in the process.

“We’re all shocked by what we see,” she continued, “but we’ve been here before on reservations with indigenous and native people, at the auction block during slavery.”
