Ocasio-Cortez made the comment in reference to her previous calls to abolish Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). 

"ICE is not under DOJ, it's under the Department of Homeland Security and so we have now —" Ocasio-Cortez said.

"Would you get rid of Homeland Security too?" Remnick asked.

"I think so," Ocasio-Cortez responded. "I think so." (The Daily Wire)

DHS was created in the aftermath of 9/11 and is designed to prevent terrorist attacks and respond to threats against Americans. 

According to The Daily Wire:

Eliminating DHS would bring an end to the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), United States Coast Guard (USCG), United States Customs and Border Protection (CBP), Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), Federal Law Enforcement Training Center (FLETC), United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), United States Secret Service (USSS), Transportation Security Administration (TSA), Management Directorate, Science and Technology Directorate, Countering Weapons of Mass Destruction Office, Office of Intelligence and Analysis, and the Office of Operations Coordination.
