A new video ad put out by the RNC very neatly ties the extreme anti-ICE rhetoric of a group of far-left congresswomen (known as “The Squad”) to acts of violence against Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detention facilities.
The video puts into context President Trump’s recent condemnation of Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.), Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) and Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.) on Twitter.
Trump’s suggestion that “they go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came” has prompted widespread accusations among Democrats and the media that the president is a racist.
But as the RNC ad suggests, Trump was only defending the country against The Squad’s incessant attacks.
The ad begins with a clip of AOC declaring that “the United States is running concentration camps on our southern border,” and another clip of her arguing that ICE is a “fascist organization” that should be eliminated.
The next clip shows Tlaib telling ABC’s Martha Raddatz that she believes the U.S. is operating concentration camps.
Pressley is then seen telling a crowd of supporters at a rally that “They will see the light! If not, we will bring the fire!”
Next up is footage of a car that was actually on fire outside of an ICE detention facility in Tacoma, Wash., over the weekend.
Armed with a rifle and flares, antifa terrorist Willem Van Spronsen attacked the ICE facility Saturday morning. He intended to set the buildings on fire but only managed to ignite the car. He died in a shootout with police.
Before the attack, Van Spronsen declared in a manifesto that he could no longer stand by as the fascist government rounded up immigrants and placed them in “concentration camps.”
The RNC ad goes on to show a news clip about another ICE facility that was under siege by leftists over the weekend. On Friday, far-left agitators protested outside of an ICE facility in Aurora, Colorado.
“They took down an American flag and Colorado state flag and instead — they raised a Mexican flag,” a reporter is heard saying.
The video then cuts to a reporter accosting Reps. Pressley, Omar, and Ocasio-Cortez in a hallway on Capitol Hill, asking them if they will condemn the antifa attack against the ICE facility in Washington. The women breezily walk by him without commenting.
The RNC video is titled: “Squad Goals: Anarchy.”
