Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., urged people to join with her in a hunger strike in an attempt to shut down U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), The Washington Free Beacon is reporting.

Her comments came during a fundraiser in Detroit last weekend for the Michigan Coalition for Human Rights, the Free Beacon reported. She said Congress is unwilling to abolish ICE.

A video of a woman, reported to be Tlaib, is posted on the Free Beacon website The Free Beacon said the video was captured by America Rising, a conservative group; In the video, the woman is seen addressing an audience and saying: "I want you all to shut them down. We can shut them down. 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 (a) hunger strike, all these other things, going to the border, and I plan to.”

The Free Beacon said she was also critical of her Democratic colleagues, who she claimed were too “strategic” and reject plans to abolish ICE because they’re “not ready for that now.”
