This one has to hurt.
According to The Daily Wire, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was humiliated after she gave mild criticism to President Joe Biden’s decision to open an immigrant detention facility for kids.
“This is not okay, never has been okay, never will be okay – no matter the administration or party,” AOC started out. However, a short time later she started to change her tune, adding, “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.”
“It’s only 2 mos into this admin & our fraught, unjust immigration system will not transform in that time,” Ocasio-Cortez continued, “That’s why bold reimagination is so impt.”
Steve Guest, Special Advisor for Communications for Sen. Ted Cruz stated that was “A slap on the wrist from AOC to Joe Biden.” You can read the full article here.
