Gorka Blasts Dem Rep for Declaring ICE the American 'Gestapo'
Former White House aide Dr. Sebastian Gorka criticized a Democratic congresswoman for calling Immigration and Customs Enforcement the new "Gestapo" during a protest outside their New York City office.
At the protest, Rep. Yvette Clarke (D-N.Y.) said she was "standing in front of a building that has become the headquarters for the new Gestapo of the United States of America."

Gorka ripped Clarke, calling her words an "outrage."
He called for Clarke's constituency, which includes heavily Democratic areas in Lefferts Gardens, Gerritsen Beach and Midwood, Brooklyn, to recall her.

"This is an insult to all the GI’s, our grandfathers, our fathers who fought the Nazis of World War II," Gorka said.
The Geheime Staatspolizei or "Gestapo" was the infamous and anti-Semitic secret police of the Nazi era in Germany. It was founded by Luftwaffe commander Hermann Göring in 1933.
Gorka fumed that Clarke had the temerity to make such an exaggerated reference on Holocaust Remembrance Weekend.
"It's a disgrace to Congress and her office. This is a woman who has no idea what she's talking about," Gorka said.
According to the New York Post, Clarke added that she would not stand silent as President Trump allegedly "attacks hard-working people."
