Amazon’s decision to cancel its plans to build a second corporate headquarters in New York City came after left-wing activists and politicians demanded that the company advance their immigration agenda in exchange for nearly $3 billion in government subsidies.

Democratic socialism advocates and New York politicians, emboldened by the leftward lurch of the Democrat Party, which the election of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) crystallized, stepped up their demands on Amazon in recent weeks, according to a person briefed on the matter. One such demand included that the company pledge not to cooperate with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

Amazon refused to say it would not cooperate with U.S. immigration laws, the person said

If they won't cooperate arrest Bezos !
