Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez plans to introduce legislation in the coming days to block President Trump’s “national emergency” declaration regarding the United States’ southern border with Mexico.
“Joaquin Castro and I aren’t going to let the President declare a fake national emergency without a fight,” tweeted the self-described Democratic-Socialist.

Cortez’ comments come just hours after President Trump signed a bipartisan budget agreement that included over $1 billion in border security. The White House later confirmed the administration will declare a national emergency to increase funding for wall construction.
AMAZON VS AOC: Tech Giant SLAMS Cortez, Says Couldn’t Work In This 'Environment’
Tech giant Amazon lashed-out at Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Friday; blasting the self-described Democratic-Socialist after announcing their plans to abandon its New York City headquarters.
“If you talk to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, it’s ‘Never Amazon,'” said Jodi Seth, the head of the policy communications for Amazon. “If you talk to [New York City Councilman Jimmy] Van Bramer, it’s unions.”
“It was that the environment over the course of the past three months had not got any better. There were some local and state elected officials who refused to meet with Amazon and criticized us day in and day out about the plan,” she added.
Anything is possible: today was the day a group of dedicated, everyday New Yorkers & their neighbors defeated Amazon’s corporate greed, its worker exploitation, and the power of the richest man in the world. https://t.co/nyvm5vtH9k
