The Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) saw a membership surge after Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez defeated incumbent Joe Crowley in a primary victory that shocked Washington, D.C.'s political class.

Ocasio-Cortez believes in abolishing ICE, telling CNN "We can replace it with a humane agency that is directed toward safe passage instead of the direction of criminalization." 

She also supports government-run healthcare, promoting class warfare, transforming our way of life to combat climate change, and opposing war even in the most justifiable circumstances.
