Leftists angrily criticized a fake college used by ICE to catch illegal immigrants — then faced embarrassment when they found out it dated back to the Obama administration. Among those who took to social media to vent were presidential-hopeful Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and motormouth congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY).
The fuss started when ICE announced they’d just arrested 90 foreign students who’d enrolled at a fake university set up by the agency. The sting operation was a huge success, taking dozens of illegal immigrants off our streets — but liberals were outraged. Warren called it “cruel and appalling,” while AOC let loose with a Twitter rant:
Earlier this year, Congress rushed to approve BILLIONS more $ for ICE + CBP.
I saw members voting YES w/o even a summary of the bill. Nobody cared then how we’d pay for it.
Now ICE is setting up fake universities to trap students.
Yet we were called radical for opposing it.

Unfortunately for AOC, though, it turns out the college wasn’t set up with President Trump’s increased enforcement funding. In fact, it’s been running since the Obama presidency — it was set up in 2015 as part of Operation Paper Chase.
It would be nice if liberals could stop blaming everything that offends them on President Trump.
