Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez went into hiding after being confronted with this major scandal
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is usually front and center on TV and social media to act as the face of the far-left in every policy fight.
But not right now.
That’s because Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez went into hiding after being confronted with this major scandal.
When Donald Trump was President and illegal aliens surged the border, Ocasio-Cortez turned opposition to stemming the tide of illegal migration into performance art.
Ocasio-Cortez complained that Trump was holding illegal aliens in concentration camps and staged a photo op where she claimed to cry in front of a fence by a parking lot at a border detention facility.
By any objective measure the situation is far worse right now under Joe Biden.
The administration is holding 15,000 kids in overcrowded jail cells and the Border Patrol is encountering illegal aliens in numbers not seen in 20 years.
Now that it’s Ocasio-Cortez’s party controlling everything – and the open borders policies she advocates fueling the surge in illegal immigration – Ocasio-Cortez is nowhere to be found.
The New York Post reports:
AOC, a vocal opponent of the Trump administration’s immigration policies, has only spoken out twice against President Biden’s handling of the migrant surge and subsequent border crisis.
Both times came on the same day in late February, when she wrote in response to a report about migrant facilities being opened for children under the new president, “This is not okay, never has been okay, never will be okay – no matter the administration or party.”
Joe Biden owns the border crisis.
It’s one reason he refuses to visit the border and the DHS wouldn’t permit the press to accompany U.S. Senators there.
And it’s the main reason Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has ducked for cover and does not want to answer questions about this fiasco.
