WHO’S IN CHARGE? AOC Slams Pelosi for ‘Blindly’ Supporting Emergency Border Funding Bill

Controversial Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez slammed Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi over the holiday weekend; accusing the top Democrat of “blindly” supporting the GOP-sponsored Senate bill on emergency border funding.

“I don’t believe it was a good idea for Dems to blindly trust the Trump admin when so many kids have died in their custody. It’s a huge mistake. This admin also refuses to hand over docs to Congress on the whereabouts of families. People’s lives are getting bargained, & for what?” asked AOC on social media.

Ocasio-Cortez continued to label US immigration centers as “concentration camps” last week; saying there may be widespread “deaths” the American public “doesn’t know about.”

“These are concentration camps. According to concentration camp experts, people begin to die due to overcrowding, neglect, and shortage of resources. We saw all three of those signs on our trip yesterday. Another person died yesterday. And those are the deaths we know about,” posted AOC on social media.

US officials and border agents pushed-back against Rep. Ocasio-Cortez’ recent comments regarding immigration detention centers Tuesday; saying the congresswoman is intentionally “misinforming” the American public.

“They are not drinking out of the toilet—no Border Patrol agent is going to make anyone drink out of the toilet,” former U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) director Tom Homan said on Fox News’ “America’s Newsroom” Tuesday. “It’s just ridiculous on its face.”

“She’s lost all credibility,” he said.

“You’re drinking out of the same apparatus, the same piece of equipment, but there are two separate water lines—one going to the commode, one going to the sink,” Homan explained. “… [T]hey are designed that way to try to save space and make it more comfortable for the people who are in those facilities.”
