‘This Is Not Okay’: AOC Turns on Biden After His Latest Immigration Move

OPINION | This article contains political commentary which reflects the author's opinion.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said Joe Biden’s opening of holding facilities on the United States-Mexico border “is not okay.”

“This is not okay, never has been okay, never will be okay — no matter the administration or party,” Ocasio-Cortez wrote in reference to the Carrizo Springs facility.

“It’s only [two months] into this admin and our fraught, unjust immigration system will not transform in that time,” Ocasio-Cortez wrote. “That’s why bold reimagination is so [important]. DHS shouldn’t exist, agencies should be reorganized, ICE gotta go, ban for-profit detention, create climate refugee status & more.”

“I think right now just the stakes are too high when it comes to another four years of Trump … and it’s, you know, for a lot of communities, this is an issue of life and death. We have had kids in cages,” Ocasio-Cortez claimed.

“This is not kids being kept in cages,” she said. “This is a facility that was opened that is going to follow the same standards as other HHS facilities.”
