AOC can dish it, but she can’t take it.
The Democrat socialist congresswoman lost her temper during a House hearing on Wednesday when former ICE chief Tom Homan refused to give in and kept on defending ICE.
Regarding another member of AOC’s squad, Rashida Tlaib’s recent comments that Homan’s role as ICE director “will always be remembered as one that was very ruthless and inhumane,” Homan declared,
“In my 34 years, I’ve never seen such hate toward a law enforcement agency in my life.”
Homan’s criticism of her crew’s call to abolish ICE and favoritism towards illegal immigrants over legal American citizens triggered Ms. Ocasio-Cortez to bang the gavel and shout out loud,
“Mr. Homan, your time is expired!”
Drunk on power much?

The New York Post has more to say about AOC's outburst:
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez loudly banged a gavel to shut down ex-acting Immigration and Customs Enforcement director Tom Homan when he kept defending himself and his agency after she repeatedly told him that his time had expired during a contentious House hearing.
The confrontation occurred Wednesday during a House Subcommittee on Civil Rights and Civil Liberties hearing on the Trump administration’s decision to deny medical deferral requests from illegal immigrants with life-threatening illnesses.
Committee member Rep. Rashida Tlaib of Michigan — who, like AOC, a fellow member of “the Squad,” has called for ICE to be abolished — laced into Homan, who was appointed to the post by President Trump and served from 2017 to 2018.
“As a fellow American, I want you to know your contribution as acting director of ICE under this administration will be remembered as one that was very ruthless and inhumane. I’m deeply troubled by your … continued assault on these innocent lives,” she said, referring to detained asylum seekers.
Homan — named “border czar” by Trump in June — asked to respond, but was initially put off as another witness was recognized.
Minutes later, however, a still-simmering Homan was given a chance to reply and launched a blistering defense of himself and of ICE, according to a video posted by Talking Points Memo that showed part of the exchange.
Talking Points Memo added:
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) shut down former acting Immigration and Customs Enforcement director Tom Homan on Wednesday when he tried to speak over his allotted time during a House hearing.
The contentious moment happened during a House Subcommittee on Civil Rights and Civil Liberties hearing on the Trump administration’s decision to begin denying medical deferral requests from undocumented immigrants with life-threatening illnesses.
Committee member Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), an outspoken critic of the administration’s immigration measures, told Homan that his contribution as acting ICE chief “will always be remembered as one that was very ruthless and inhumane.”
An outraged Homan responded to Tlaib’s comments a few minutes later, complaining that “in my 34 years, I’ve never seen such hate toward a law enforcement agency in my life.”
