The hypocrisy of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez towards Donald Trump is crystal clear.
She’s making herself look unbelievably foolish.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was enraged that her history came back to haunt her.
While Donald Trump was President, he was viciously attacked for the facilities in which migrant children, who were illegally brought into the country, were being housed in.
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez felt quite strongly about the issue, and made several unverified accusations about the detention centers.
“Now I’ve seen the inside of these facilities. It’s not just the kids. It’s everyone. People drinking out of toilets, officers laughing in front of members of Congress,” Ocasio-Cortez said, offering no evidence. “I brought it up to their superiors. They said ‘officers are under stress & act out sometimes.’ No accountability.”
Ocasio-Cortez accused Trump of running concentration camps on the southern border.
However, now that President Joe Biden is continuing to run the same facilities as Trump, Ocasio-Cortez has considerably mellowed her tone.
“This is not okay, never has been okay, never will be okay – no matter the administration or party,” AOC started by saying but she quickly changed to defending the Biden administration.
“Our immigration system is built on a carceral framework. It’s no accident that challenging how we approach both these issues are considered ‘controversial’ stances. They require reimagining our relationship to each other and challenging common assumptions we take for granted,” she added.
“It’s only 2 mos into this admin & our fraught, unjust immigration system will not transform in that time,” Ocasio-Cortez continued, which is far different than what she was saying under Trump.
Ocasio-Cortez went on to call for the destruction of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).
“DHS shouldn’t exist, agencies should be reorganized, ICE gotta go,” she said,“ban for-profit detention, create climate refugee status & more.”
Steve Guest, Special Advisor for Communications for Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), wrote on Twitter: “A slap on the wrist from AOC to Joe Biden.”
Political commentator Stephen Miller wrote: “Little bit more subdued response than flying to the border to scream through a chainlink fence.”
“She typed in a strongly worded email,” writer Chad Felix Greene said.
Children often need to be taken away from the adults who illegally smuggled them over the border.
Currently, criminals are using children in order to claim asylum under a special classification for families.
“Unfortunately we see that all too often now … adults that are bringing children with them that are not their own to try and take advantage of what they perceive as a loophole in our law that would allow them to be released into the United States,”then-Acting Secretary of Homeland Security Kevin McAleenan noted in 2019.
If Ocasio-Cortez really cared about children, she would want to discourage illegal immigration which puts children at risk.
