She’s a total hypocrite.
According to The Daily Wire, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez defended the crisis at the southern border stating that people are trying to “weaponize” the situation.
“And then we have these complete inhumane conditions at CBP facilities and some of just the horrifying things that we’ve seen. Now, the first thing I want to say is that the fact that this keeps happening over and over and over again, is a political failure by both parties,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “And I want to be very clear about that, because I don’t want to drop false equivalence. What is happening here is not the same as what happened during the Trump administration, where they took babies out of the arms of their mothers, and deported their families and permanently traumatize these children.”
“So I don’t want to excuse any of this, But I also I don’t think we should also get them twisted together, because one is not the same,” she continued. “And we cannot dust that under the rug. And by the way, those families are owed reparations, period.”
“I have been in contact with the Biden administration, personally, and what I can tell you that’s different about this administration,” she said. “Again, I’m not here to excuse it, I’m not here to say this is good. I’m not here to do anything. But one thing that is different, is that they’re trying to figure out and they’re trying to, to create the resources to actually end this problem.” You can read the full article here.
