So now Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez doesn’t like the use of the term “surge” related to illegal immigration along the nation’s southern border. It sounds a bit too militaristic for the millennial squad member.
**Insert eye roll**
The Congresswoman made her comments during an Instagram live video this week. She said, “This is not a surge. These are children and they are not insurgents and we are not being invaded which by the way is a white supremacist idea, philosophy, the idea that if another is coming in the population that, is like, an invasion of who we are.”
AOC apparently can’t handle that an English word can have more than one meaning. Plus, a surge is not the same as an insurgent. No one is calling kids crossing the border insurgents. They are illegal aliens, and the numbers are surging. If you don’t want to call it a crisis, let’s just call it a Biden failure.
The actual immigration numbers are far more important than arguing over what it’s called. We’re talking about more than 100,000 illegal immigrants in February, and AOC is concerned about using one word that she doesn’t like? Come on! We’ve got a border to protect here. She’s just another Democrat trying to distract us from this crisis by calling us all racist and white supremacists.
Biden opened the door wide open, and now we have a growing refugee crisis. Hey AOC, how do you like that term? It’s not too militaristic, and it definitely describes the growing problem of illegal immigration under Biden’s failed policies.
Who cares what you call them. They are migrants who we will have to support with our tax dollars. It’s one of the reasons Biden wants to raise taxes is because we need more money to feed and house these people. Illegal immigration drives up rent prices and depresses wages, both of which hurts the poor.
But don’t trust us. Watch her describe the situation herself. Watch it now and see why the Next News Network calls AOC’s latest reaction absolutely shameful.
