Ocasio-Cortez Was ONLY Dem to Vote ‘No’ On Bill to Reopen the Gov’t (Details)

In a surprising twist, a self-described Democrat Socialist voted against reopening the government.

New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was actually the only person in her party to vote “no.”

Why?

Because the bill funds ICE.

And ICE is bad.

From Business Insider:

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was the only House Democrat to vote against a bill to fund the government and end the partial government shutdown on Wednesday.

The progressive New York Democrat said she broke from her party because she didn’t want to allocate any funding for Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), which she campaigned on eliminating.

Here’s her explanation:

Alexandria implied that President Trump is acting less American than incoming migrants.

She also suggests that ICE agents are killing migrants.

From The Hill:

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) on Tuesday said immigrants seeking to enter the U.S. “are acting more in an American tradition” than President Trump, shortly after the president delivered a stark address to the nation calling for more border security.

Ocasio-Cortez also slammed the president’s immigration policies. The freshman lawmaker argued that Trump is systematically curbing even legal immigration and called his policies “anti-American.”

AOC: “He’s fighting against almost every way that people can actually legally enter this country, forcing them to become undocumented and then he’s trying to attack their undocumented status.

AOC: “This is systematic. It is wrong and it is anti-American. And again, those women and children trying to come here with nothing but the shirts on their back to create an opportunity and provide for this nation are acting more in an American tradition than this president is right now.

AOC: “The president should be really defending why we are funding [ICE] at all … right now, what we are seeing, is death.

When Democrats and the mainstream media wake up and realize what this woman is actually talking about, it will be too late.

President Trump revealed what will happen if Republicans cave to Democrats on the border wall.

Trump: “I have the absolute right to declare a national emergency … I’m not prepared to do that yet, but if I have to, I will.

If this doesn’t work out, probably I will do it. I would almost say definitely.”

WATCH:

Building a border wall to keep out intruders and defend the American people? PREPOSTEROUS!

Check out President Trump’s thoughts on the “immoral” wall…

Well, then you got to do something about the Vatican, because the Vatican has the biggest wall of them all. The wall is immoral? Look at all of the countries that have walls, and they work 100%. It’s never going to change.

WATCH:

Trump on foriegn aid:

We spend in Afghanistan more in one month than what we’re talking about for the wall. The $5.6 billion is such a small number, literally, it’s one month in Afghanistan, and we’re talking about national security. This isn’t just a border, this is national security.
