It’s amazing how the Left tries to change the narrative of things when they’re in power, isn’t it?
When Trump was POTUS, the way he handled EVERYTHING was wrong, especially when it came to the border…at least in the eyes of the Left.
He said he would build a wall and Mexico would pay for it…
Which wound up being true, as, during his presidency, Trump got Mexico to use its own military to stop migrant caravans, and the effort was funded by Mexico’s own government. Effectively, Mexico paid to BECOME the wall.
However, even the border wall itself was met with great disdain. Critics called it racist, bigoted, and xenophobic…
But what they didn’t call it was “effective in cutting down on illegal border crossing” – which is the one thing it absolutely was, especially in the areas in which large sections were completed.
However, what was even more effective were Trump’s policies, particularly the “Remain In Mexico” order. Migrants could apply for sanctuary status, but they had to remain on the Southern side of the border until approval came through.
However, as soon as Trump was out and Biden froze all of his executive orders and policies, an unprecedented surge of illegals started streaming towards the border—and young children made up the largest segment of those seeking asylum in the US.
Our border facilities filled up quicker than the local bar when the fleet pulls in for shore leave.
Right now, we’ve got more “kids in cages” than EVER before, and they’re living in horrendous conditions, laying on concrete floors with nothing more than thermal mylar blankets to keep them warm.
The border control agents are so overworked that some of them are barely getting enough time to sleep.
Immigrants are drowning in the Rio Grande while attempting to cross.
And yet the Biden administration can’t even call it a “crisis.” When they discuss it, it’s a “problem,” but tens of thousands of people coming weekly isn’t a “crisis” in their eyes.
Where AOC Stands
However, if there was one Dem we thought we could count on to call out the atrocities happening at America’s southern border, it’s the paragon of ideological virtue, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. She of all people should be able to call a spade a spade and put a little pressure on the Democrats to fix what’s happening down there.
However, if you thought that she’d be stepping up, you’d be wrong.
AOC has fallen in lock-step with the goose-stepping Democrats and is giving Biden a pass.
In a video shared on her Instagram story, AOC gives her thoughts of what’s going on at the border—and you’ll never believe what this hypocrite is saying.
Addressing the border mess, AOC said, “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?’”
Would love to know who she thinks DOESN’T care about immigrants…
What do you think is the determining faction in whether she thinks you care about immigrants or not? I’d bet dollars to donuts that it would depend on whether you have a “D” or “R” next to your name.
But I digress. Let’s get back to the hypocrisy, shall we?
“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,” AOC blabbed. “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.”

Now, I’m not EVEN going to entertain her idiocy about the border crisis being an “imperialism crisis,” “trade crisis,” or “climate crisis” because I’m not an idiot. I don’t talk about things that are purely ridiculous, but I do want to touch on her “carceral crisis” comment.
So, the problem is how we incarcerate criminals (because that’s what illegal immigrants are, hence the world “illegal”) and not the fact that they keep streaming through the border because Biden ended successful border control policies?
What an effing HYPOCRITE!
This idiot manufactured an entire photo op at a fence crying her eyes out while looking at an empty parking lot when Trump was in charge.
But now, while Biden is in office and things have only gotten worse, it’s a policy problem?!
Give us a break!
There absolutely is a crisis at the border and Biden is ABSOLUTELY responsible for it!
It’d be great if AOC, the supposed champion of illegal immigrants, would call Biden out on his BS.
But she won’t. She’s a good little soldier, and she’s just following her orders.
She only stands up to people who don’t really have any power or can’t strip her of hers.
Isn’t it sad that we can’t get people to call out wrong and right these days?
What are you gonna do?
