It has been one hellacious week for the Biden administration, and it appears as though it’s still far from over.
First and foremost, there was the disastrous trip south made by Vice President Kamala Harris, in which she still didn’t visit the souther border. Instead, Harris spent the trip telling South Americans that they would be turned away at the US border should they attempt to emigrate here.
This didn’t jibe with the more liberal factions within the Democratic Party, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was soon lashing out at Harris and the rest of the establishment.
Her criticisms continued on Tuesday.
On Tuesday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “All In,” Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) stated that “the Biden administration’s immigration policy writ large is not working. It’s wrong, and it’s inhumane.”
And that that Vice President Kamala Harris’ warning to migrants that they shouldn’t come seems like a precursor to “saying that we are going to allege that you are coming to this country illegally, when seeking asylum on our border is, in fact, legal, and use that to pre-date any violence that we are willing to inflict on immigrants as a deterrent.”
Ocasio-Cortez said, “I think the issue here, and first of all, I think this is not just about the vice president. This is about the Biden administration’s immigration policy writ large is not working. It’s wrong, and it’s inhumane. It’s rooted — and he inherited it. But frankly, this was also a problem not just inherited by Donald Trump, but inherited by Barack Obama, all the way back to the creation of DHS and ICE under George Bush.”
Ocasio-Cortez has long been one of the most vocal critics of the Biden presidency, (and moderates in general), and has continually pushed the party hard to the left on account of it.
