Hypocrite Ocasio-Cortez Attacks Trump For Funding ICE…After She Voted To Fund ICE
America’s clueless darling of the House of Representatives is showing herself to be a hypocrite already just one week into her new job in Congress.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez had some harsh words to say about President Trump over his support for funding Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE),
“The president should not be asking for more money to an agency that has systematically violated human rights. The president should be really defending why we are funding such an agency at all because right now what we are seeing is death, right now what we are seeing is the violation of human rights.”
But here’s the problem with her statement, she failed to mention that she actually voted FOR funding ICE just last week. In fact, every single Democrat voted in favor of the bill.
According to The Daily Caller,
H.J. Res. 1, according to the final rollcall vote, passed with 100 percent Democratic support. Five Republicans joined with the Democrats in voting “aye.” The intent of the resolution was, “Making further continuing appropriations for the Department of Homeland Security [DHS] for fiscal year 2019, and for other purposes.”
Ocasio-Cortez seemed to confuse ICE and Customs and Border Patrol though during her interview on MSNBC with Rachel Maddow. It is actually Border Patrol that is responsible for detaining people who are caught entering the country illegally.
The Chicks on the Right reported,
But Ocasio-Cortez kept saying “ICE” was responsible during her appearance and blaming ICE for the death of a child who had died in custody of the Border Patrol. She also erroneously said he died on Christmas, failed to note that the father had declined medical aid and that there is no evidence yet that the Border Patrol did anything wrong in the case. But hey, who needs facts when you are “impassioned” and “morally right?”
Here’s another thing. The President does not control the funding for agencies, Congress does.
So which is it Alexandria? Do you support ICE or not?
