Soros-Affiliated Anti-Deportation Group Part of ‘Defund Police’ Movement
An anti-deportation group affiliated with leftist billionaire George Soros’s Open Society Foundations is one of the groups behind the “defund the police” movement taking place across America.

While many Americans see the current protests and riots as organic reactions to the death of Floyd, many organized groups are seizing on the momentum.
The Soros-affiliated group is called Organized Communities Against Deportation (OCAD). OCAD lists on its website the “Open Society Foundation” as a partner.

Trump assessed a chart that showed him outpacing senators he shared a primary ballot with this year. “Wow, that’s great in North Carolina, huh?” he said of placing 16 points ahead of Sen. Thom Tillis, a North Carolina Republican who is up for reelection in November.
“If they don’t embrace, they’re going to lose, because, you know, I have a very hard base,” Trump said. “I have the strongest base people have ever seen.
“How did it work out for the great senator of Nevada? Not too good,” Trump said of Nevada Republican Dean Heller. Arizona Republican Jeff Flake, the president said, “went from 54 percent to 3.” Read more…
