Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) blamed the worsening immigration crisis at the U.S. southern border on imperialism, climate change, trade policy, and the prison system.
Ocasio-Cortez sounded off on the border crisis Tuesday on Instagram. The New York Democrat did not explicitly blame President Joe Biden for the surge of illegal migrants crossing the U.S. border, though migrants themselves cite the president and his policies as primary factors in their decision to travel to the U.S.
“So let’s talk about this because so much of our national conversation, which is not a conversation, about immigration is driven by people who could not care less about immigrants. So often people want to say, ‘Why aren’t you talking about the border crisis?’ or ‘Why are you talking about it in this way?’” Ocasio-Cortez said.
“Well, we’re talking about it. They just don’t like how we’re talking about it because it’s not a border crisis, it’s an imperialism crisis. It’s a climate crisis. It’s a trade crisis. And also, it’s a carceral crisis because as I have already said even during this term and this president, our immigration system is based and designed on our carceral system,” she continued.

When is she going to show us her acting skills once again? I’m waiting for her to go to the border and weep in “compassionate sorrow” for the children in cages.
Oscar Committee take note.
Awww, AOC knows how to use a thesaurus...
Who writes this stuff for Sandy Cortez? She doesn’t have the brains to come up with these ideas.
Blame it on greed. They want what Americans have.
‘cause she’s smart and stuff.
We need a “Slap AOC” app.
I’m past talking about anything.
I’m just looking for the gathering point where it will be addressed physically.
(No, I’m not asking her on a date)
“...it’s not a border crisis, it’s an imperialism crisis.”
If stupidity was a crime, AOC would experience first-hand our carceral society.
Passing gas for AOL exceeds all fracking.
Bartender to House of Representatives to standup comedy star.
I stopped taking advice from bartenders decades ago.
Wait, I don’t see where she blamed Trump???
I have to check now to make sure it isn’t the Babylon Bee.
I’ve seen that her boyfriend is white.
Which means she is woke on the streets, and oppressed in the sheets.
The only thing she is qualified for is a wet T shirt contest.
So they are coming here to get into our prison system?
