AOC Rips ‘Ted Cruz Types’ Who Are ‘Crying’ About the Border Situation

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) is blasting politicians who have supported stricter immigration laws and procedures who are now decrying the situation at the U.S. southern border.

In a series of tweets on Thursday, she wrote, “A lot of people who are just now suddenly horrified at the dehumanizing conditions at our border are the same folks who dehumanize immigrants [and] helped build these cages in the 1st place. When we tried to stop this infrastructure over a year ago, we were overruled by BOTH parties.”

“A politician’s strength isn’t based on a trip. It’s based on their policy and voting RECORD.”

“And the fact is a LOT of Ted Cruz types who are now going down to meet refugee children in boats outfitted w/ machine guns are the ones who helped create this problem in the first place,” the lawmaker continued as she made an apparent reference to 19 Republican senators — including Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) — who recently traveled to the border.

“For all the new tears GOP have about the border, what are their policy solutions? A Muslim ban, racist policy, shutting down the border, [and] more cages. If you don’t want children in cages, then you need to stop upholding CBP, ICE, and the military as the solution to this crisis,” she added.

The New York Congresswoman was harshly critical of former President Donald Trump‘s immigration policies and has spoken out to criticize Biden’s reopening of a facility to hold migrants.

However, some have suggested that she has been silent on the border situation.

According to The New York Times, unaccompanied migrant children who show up at the border are being held in crowded facilities often require to sleep on gym mats with foil blankets and going days without showering.

Ocasio-Cortez is blasting politicians who are “pretending to care about the border now but have continuously voted to expand these cages.”

“You might be new to this, but we’re true to this. Short-term issue is facilities. Long-term issue is destabilization that’s driving migration,” she added.

She claimed, “Fact is a lot of the politicians crying right now don’t work to solve either. They vote to grow ICE + CBP cages and they do everything to avoid addressing the root: US foreign policy and interventionism that destabilizes regions, the climate crisis, and unjust economic policy.”

While the U.S. is on track for the highest number of border crossings in 20 years, Ocasio-Cortez is also criticizing those who use the word “surge” to describe the wave of migrants coming to the border.

“They wanna say, ‘But what about the surge?’ Well, first of all, just gut check, stop. Anyone who’s using the term ‘surge’ around you consciously is trying to invoke a militaristic frame,” she said during an Instagram Live video on Tuesday.

She added, “And that’s a problem because this is not a surge, these are children and they are not insurgents and we are not being invaded, which by the way is a White supremacist idea-philosophy, the idea that if another is coming in the population that this is an invasion of who we are.”

During a virtual town hall event on Wednesday evening, she called the condition at the border “inhumane,” “horrific,” and “barbaric.”

  1. Someone or two need to be shown a dictionary and the major difference between the words surge and insurgent and how one or the other is absolutely NOTHING to do with the other. Idiots!!!

  2. Couple of things:
    Remember that 30 year old AOC got her COVID vaccine BEFORE seniors. She is not an essential worker. I am amazed this is not a bigger story.
    We need to remember that AOC is Hispanic, not Latino, and was born/grew up in a middle class US neighborhood.
    In addition, Hispanics/Latinos are racially classified as Caucasoid-just like ‘white’ people.

  3. Always a competition for the dumbest member of Congress between AOC, Sheila ‘I stand here as a freed slave’ Jackson Lee, Maxine Waters, Hank Johnson, Ted Lieu, Rashida Tlaib….
    AOC wins this week for these statements. Obama built the cases. He deported over a million illegals. Trump encountered continuous opposition to all his projects, including the wall. Nevertheless, he made agreements with Central American countries and Mexico that were really helping. JObama cancelled his agreements, policies, wall construction, revoked our agreement with Mexico, was ‘flattered’ that illegals thought he was a ‘decent man’. He alone caused this huge illegal alien SURGE. The correct legal term is ‘illegal alien’. Migrants are legal. An alien is a non-citizen.
    every country in the world has borders. Crossing said borders illegally is a crime. Biden, by not protecting our borders as a sovereign nation, is committing treason.
    Trump used those ‘cages’ for a month. He returned children to their own countries. Babies ripped from arms? You wanted these babies to go to adult facilities?
    These ‘caring’ parents give their children as young as three to criminals, coyotes, smugglers, child sex traffickers, and rapists a thousand miles to cross our borders illegally so their families can legally come to get a lifetime of American welfare.
    ‘Decent, moral Joe’? We have 14 million hungry and 2.5 million homeless American CHILDREN. We have 550,000 street people, including our veterans. We have people with substance abuse issues that could be helped. We have battered women/families. We have senior/disabled people trying to exist on $1400 a month.
    Would a ‘decent, moral man’ leave our own citizens, including children, to suffer and die while he floods our country with illegal aliens abusing our limited public assistance funds? HUD housing is 60% occupied by illegal aliens who jump the line. Most HUD housing lists are closed and are not taking any more waitlists. There are discounted housing programs for seniors called ‘afforable’ which rent from $800 up, no utilities included. On a total income of $1400, this is just not do-able. On the other hand, illegal families of 4 can get $2400 A MONTH in rent assistance.
    Decent and moral? 16 credible victims of sexual abuse, attacks and assaults by Joe at the time of his candidacy-all BURIED by the DNC and their complicit lying MSM.
    Decent and moral? Look at th thousands of pictures and film of Gropey grabbing and touching little girls.
    Decent and moral?
    How about those inappropriate showers with daddy and daughter?

  4. So why is crazy eyes getting as much press as Biden? Even Giggles Harris isn’t quoted as much.

  5. It is simple. Send all illegals to every Democrat politician households and every Biden voter.

  6. oh boy… its amazing how wrong EVERYONE is getting this wrong…. I’ll try to explain it here… in downtown Mexico City there is a large square park… early in the morning about 50 kids show up and meet with the drug dealers… the drug dealers give each boy an amount of drugs that are to be sold during the day… all of the boys cary a small wooden box and in the box are the drugs to be sold and shoe polish/polish rags… so if you are a customer and want drugs you just find one of the shoe shine kids…. they are scattered all through out the city during the day and they go to there assigned places to sell the drugs… the age of the shoe shine boys is young, younger than driving age of 16… they all carry switch blade knives to protect themselves from being robbed…. OK… so now you know how its done in Mexico City… so now the drug cartel identifies the drug dealers ( kids up to 18yrs old ) and they are told to goto the border of the USA and slip in… so the drug cartel sends thousands and thousands of drug dealers into the USA, the ” kids ” have arm bands that tell them where to go and who will meet them in the USA when they get to their destinations to sell the drugs that the drug cartel is importing into the USA…. so when biden said, come on in.. I’m the nice guy, what biden actually is doing is allowing the mexican drug cartel to send in thousands and thousands of drug dealers into the USA… disguised as ” children “… the child can be upto 18yrs old in the USA…. think about the USA being populated over the entire USA, each and every state… with chosen drug dealers by the drug cartel of mexico and brazil…. who did you think was selling the drugs that are being smuggled into the USA by the drug cartel…. the bidens LOVE COKE… just ask hunter and his dead brother or bidens niece they have at one time or the other all been busted for drugs…. now you know the real story that no one else is telling… if you don’t believe any of this, take a trip to Mexico City… go to the park and watch each day as the shoe shine boys get the drugs to sell…. go take a trip to Laredo, take a taxi over into Mexico and tell the driver to take you to ” boys town ” …. in boys town you can see the drug cartel in person and you will see the drug dealers and the little mexican girls they sell to their friends…
    DARE YA… TAKE THE TRIP

    1. Dixter: I appreciate your comments. They are very informative. Thank you, and keep them coming !!! There may be someone that chooses to get educated. Unfortunately, I think Generally Confused and Phyllis (and a few others on here) are too brain dead.
