Democratic Rep. Pramila Jayapal viciously attacked President Trump and his proposed border wall Thursday; baselessly accusing the Commander-in-Chief of trying to make America “pure” by ending “every form of legal immigration.”
The liberal lawmaker was speaking with MSNBC when she was asked to comment on President Trump’s insistence that border security be included in any proposed budget deal to re-open the federal government.

“It is fundamentally existential if he continues to insist on a wall and you just said it so beautifully, Chris. This has never been about a wall. He actually could have gotten funding a couple of years ago or a year ago for a wall,” Jayapal said.
“It was part of a deal that was proposed. Not all of us agreed with that deal, but it was proposed to him and he turned it down because his ultimate goal is, as you said, is to make America ‘pure’ in the sense of not having immigrants, not having folks of color here and shutting down every form of legal immigration.”
‘OCCUPY EVERYTHING’: Socialist Superstar Calls on Supporters to SHUT DOWN AIRPORTS
New York Democratic socialist candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez continued to ruffle the feathers of her more centrist colleagues this week; calling on her supporters to “occupy airports” over the President’s immigration policies.
According to Newsweek, Cortez was speaking with liberal activist organization Democracy Now Monday when she urged the mass protests, saying “there is no convenient time” to stand up to ICE agents.
“I may have had a primary three days after I went down there, but we’re not going to win if we don’t stand for everything,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “We have to show people that we’re willing to walk the walk and put our money where our mouth is.”
“We have to occupy all of it,” she said. “We need to occupy every airport. We need to occupy every border. We need to occupy every ICE office until those kids are back with their parents, period,” she added.
Cortez’ comments come just days after she slammed American-style capitalism as the “wild west,” saying the current financial system “won’t always exist.”
