(RepublicanDaily.org) – Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) has never been afraid to criticize her conservative opponents. Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) is one of her favorite targets; earlier this year, she even accused Cruz of almost getting her killed.
On Thursday, April 1, Cruz and Ocasio-Cortez were trading barbs on Twitter once again. Cruz called out AOC for criticizing funding allocated to federal border agencies like CBP and ICE. He pointed to the fact that illegal immigration was at a historic low just a year ago, but now is spiraling out of control under Biden.
Rep. Ocasio-Cortez had this to say in response:
Ted, this is pretty rich coming from someone who fled their own home (and responsibilities) during an environmental crisis to cross the border and seek refuge in Mexico.
Also you funded cages, expanded cages, and yet you’re complaining about cages. You have no policy, just puff. https://t.co/0MI8oU0EtQ

When faced with the obvious statistics Cruz presented, Ocasio-Cortez found herself with no option but to resort to silly jokes and “whataboutism.” Unfortunately, this kind of deflection is typical of the Leftest attitude toward the crisis of late. What will it take for the party to give this situation the attention it deserves?
