The "new arrivals" section of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s online store features numerous items advancing the abolition of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) as the problem at the southern border proceeds to intensify.

T-shirts, posters, and magnets are now available on the New York Democrat’s official team shop that features an ice cooler with the word "abolish" spray-painted in red above the word "ice."

"We must go bigger and bolder on reimagining our immigration system," the caption for the $27 T-shirt states. "The path forward is clear: We must abolish ICE."

The new arrivals section further features products advancing the Green New Deal, taxing the rich, and the idea that "housing is a human right."

Ocasio-Cortez, who has been a vocal supporter of abolishing ICE for several years, is selling the merchandise at the same time illegal immigration into the US is rushing along with law enforcement seizures of fentanyl.

Customs and Border Protection (CBP) on Friday announced it had seen a "substantial increase" in fentanyl seizures at the southern border in January, just as it verified that there were 153,941 migrant encounters last month.

CBP’s monthly operational update verified Fox News’ reporting on Wednesday that there had been 153,941 encounters in what is typically a slow month for border crossers. The number almost doubled the 78,414 migrant encounters in Jan 2021 and more than quadrupled the 36,585 in Jan 2020.

There were 48,945 lbs of drugs seized at the southern border in January, which is down from 59,793 lbs encountered a year prior. Fentanyl seizures were up, with 839 lbs seized in January, as opposed to 682 lbs in FY 2021 and 139 in FY 2020.

Fentanyl, an opioid for pain treatment, is between 50 and 100 times more potent than morphine. In Fiscal Year 2021, CBP seized 10,586 pounds of the deadly drug at the southern border, which can be fatal in extremely small amounts. That is up from 4,558 pounds caught in FY 2020 and 2,633 pounds seized in FY 2019. Thus far in FY 2022, agents have seized 3,289 lbs.

According to the CDC, more than 100,000 Americans died from drug overdoses from September 2020 to September 2021, which represents a 16% growth from the previous year.

The CDC announced that 78,388 of those deaths were from opioids and 86% of those deaths were from fentanyl.

Ocasio-Cortez’s office did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Fox News.

"ICE is a dangerous agency with 0 accountability, widespread reporting of rape, abuse of power, + children dying in DHS custody," Ocasio-Cortez tweeted in 2019.

In 2021, Ocasio-Cortez claimed that a solution at the southern border is to build up Health and Human Services facilities rather than ICE and CBP facilities.
