Socialist radical Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC), who infamously broke down in tears over the “plight” of illegal aliens at the U.S.-Mexico border during former President Trump’s term in office, has ironically remained silent as photos leak of crowded conditions at federal facilities operated under the Biden administration.
In 2018, AOC compared Trump’s immigration policy to “ethnic cleansing” and called federal facilities “concentration camps”: “The fact that concentration camps are now an institutionalized practice in the Home of the Free is extraordinarily disturbing and we need to do something about it,” she pontificated.
In 2020, she urged Democrat voters to support Joe Biden against Trump in the presidential election because “we have had kids in cages.”
This week, by contrast, AOC has remained curiously silent as Project Veritas’s James O’Keefe and others released photos from inside a Texas federal facility where migrants can be seen separated by plastic in crowded spaces.
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott has spoken up, however, calling the conditions at facilities run by Biden “unacceptable and inhumane.” But that’s OK with Ocasio-Cortez when the President is a Democrat.
