You won’t believe what Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez accused a fellow Democrat of
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is hopping mad.
The freshman Democrat is lashing out at her critics in unhinged rants.
And you won’t believe what she just accused a fellow Democrat of.
Ocasio-Cortez rode to the defense of anti-Semitic congresswoman Ilhan Omar.
The House was set to vote on a measure to condemn anti-Semitism.
Ocasio-Cortez thought Omar was being singled out and attacked what she saw as the real racism – Democrats voting for an amendment making it easier for ICE to deport illegal aliens that fail firearm purchase background checks.
If we’re so concerned about implied tropes, why aren’t we concerned about this one?
Where was the concern last week when 26 Dems voted for a GOP amendment to expand ICE powers rooted in the racist + false trope that Latino immigrants are more dangerous than US born citizens? https://t.co/KNzRDWJH4z

Ocasio-Cortez’s crusade against ICE helped put her in the national spotlight.
She campaigned on defunding ICE.
Because of her support, defunding ICE quickly became a mainstream position in the Democrat Party.
Democrats fought accusations that this meant they were in favor of open borders.
But Ocasio-Cortez publicly claiming that enforcing federal immigration law and making it easier to deport illegal aliens is racist makes the left’s claims that they aren’t for open borders laughable.
