Do you like jokes? Because we have one for you.
When Donald Trump was in office, Democratic socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez couldn’t stop talking about the border situation. At one point, she even accused Trump of locking kids up in “concentration camps.”
Now, with Joe Biden in office and the border in a severe crisis, AOC is suddenly silent about the humanitarian crisis on our border! Hilarious, right?
But she was recently confronted on the issue. With nowhere to run, she gave a response most Trump supporters would find ludicrous.

From Daily Wire:
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) blamed the worsening immigration crisis at the U.S. southern border on imperialism, climate change, trade policy, and the prison system…
“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. 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,” she continued.
This is a good enough reason to not vote for Democrats. AOC twisted herself into a logic pretzel to excuse Joe Biden and ignore the crisis at the border.
She blamed everything under the Sun for the problem, except for the real reason: Biden’s refusal to enforce our immigration laws.
It’s as simple as that. Yes, we can go on about why migrants are rushing our border, like the worsening conditions of their home countries.
But they wouldn’t be convinced they’d receive a warm welcome here if Biden didn’t erase all of Trump’s border policies.
What did AOC blame instead? Everything from climate change to “imperialism,” something that hasn’t been a factor in global politics since the 1800s (unless your China).
It’s funny how AOC needs to reach so far, just to avoid slamming a Democrat president. Not that she ever got this situation right.
She made a big show of “weeping” beside a detention center during Trump’s years. But she never acknowledged the fact that migrants are to blame for their plight, not the government.
And today, she continues to confuse the situation, to avoid the truth.
- Democratic socialist AOC blamed a list of things for the border crisis.
- Among her excuses, including climate change and imperialism, she did not blame Biden.
- During the Trump administration, the representative made a big show about the border.
