It looks like AOC won’t be getting a Kamala cookie anytime soon. There’s a new report that says Alexandria Ocasio Cortez has put Vice President Kamala Harris on blast for telling illegal immigrants not to come to the U.S. border.
This, despite the fact that the U.S. is seeing a record surge in illegal border crossings and that Kamala Harris hasn’t even been to the border yet, too. Here’s what you need to know.
Earlier this week AOC – who probably spends just as much time on Twitter as she does driving around Washington, D.C. in her Tesla while making trips to Whole Foods – put Vice President Kamala Harris on blast when she retweeted a video of her discouraging illegal immigrants from crossing the Mexican border to the U.S.
Alexandria Ocasio Cortez Is Definitely Not On Kamala Harris’ Friends List
In the clip, Kamala Harris said, “I want to be clear to folks in this region who are thinking about making that dangerous trek to the United States-Mexico border: Do not come, do not come.
The United States will continue to enforce our laws, and secure our border. There are legal methods by which migration can and should occur, but we, as one of our priorities, will discourage illegal migration. And I believe if you come to our border, you will be turned back”
AOC took this opportunity to add her opinion on the matter. She tweeted, “This is disappointing to see. First, seeking asylum at any US border is a 100% legal method of arrival.
Second, the US spent decades contributing to regime change and destabilization in Latin America. We can’t help set someone’s house on fire and then blame them for fleeing.”
Of course, it didn’t take very long for AOC’s fans and detractors to weigh in on the matter. Many of them commented with, “A very fair question, and I hope she responds to you. And, we need to modify the poem on the statue of Liberty and say something about our welcome does not apply to brown and black people,” along with, “As a son of an immigrant who came from war torn Europe a displaced refugee, this statement is very sad. We should not stop those who want to come here for a better life. It’s what our nation was built upon.”
Another critic said, “When I see people like you push for more extremist policies w/little thought to big picture & consequences, you push Democrats like myself more to the right. You talk a good game but don’t tell the whole story either. Your naivity about this is disappointing too.”
