Now, Ms. Cortez is putting Trump’s border policies on par with 9/11!
What is with these ‘progressive’ Democrat congresswomen, as Trump calls them and diluting the most horrific tragedies ever to occur in order to push their politics and paint a false narrative?
“Young bartender” Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is now calling for Trump’s border policy of separating immigrant children from their parents (the policy that is being phased out under Trump’s current administration) to be investigated by a “9/11-style commission…”
Take a look at news of AOC’s latest controversy that hit Twitter:
The Hill has the clip of AOC's call here for you to watch:
The New York Post has more to say about AOC's call for the "9/11-style commisson":
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-Queens/Bronx) called for a “9/11-style commission” to look into the Trump administration’s policy of separating migrant families at the US border.
Speaking Saturday at a town hall in Queens, she said the US has a “lifelong commitment” to migrant children who have been separated under the policy, which the administration said it discontinued after coming under heavy criticism.
It “will take a 9/11-style commission,” the liberal darling said. “We need a commission on child separation.”
Her mention of 9/11 to criticize a Trump policy drew a quick rebuke from the Republican National Committee.
“Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s divisive rhetoric never ends. Whether it’s smearing the US as running ‘concentration camps’ on the border or downplaying 9/11, the socialist ‘squad’ has shown us how anti-American they are,” RNC spokesperson Liz Harrington said in a statement to The Post, referencing AOC’s “squad” of like-minded Dems including Rep. Ilhan Omar (Minn.).
NBC 2 also gave these details:
Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Saturday called for a "9/11-style" commission to investigate the Trump administration's child separation policy, arguing that it's "what's going to be required in order to reunify as many children with their parents as possible."
"In the 9/11 commission they had -- they were charged with investigating and making sure they dug up every nook and cranny of what happened and how it happened in our system, and I think that that kind of study is what's going to be required in order to reunify as many children with their parents as possible," Ocasio-Cortez said during a town hall held in her district in Queens, New York. Two House lawmakers have proposed bills that would launch studies to examine the humanitarian crisis at the southern border. Ocasio-Cortez is not currently a co-sponsor of either bill.
The Trump administration's "zero tolerance" policy on the southern border, announced in April 2018, led to the separation of thousands of families, and sparked a national outcry. Children were sent to detention centers run by the Department of Health and Human Services, and some were eventually placed in foster care.
What do you think of AOC's equation of 9/11 and Trump's border policy?
Is it outrageous?
Should she be voted out of Congress?
