AOC Turns On Biden's Border Policy: "It's Inhumane & Wrong"
It looks like the polish has finally worn off the Biden Administration for AOC. She had been a lot more forgiving when it comes to Biden and the border crisis that he created. She went as far as giving him excuses. But after Kamala Harris told Nicaraguans not to come here, she is no longer playing nice and claims the Biden border policy is inhumane. She said as much during an appearance on "All In" with Chris Hayes.
Hayes broached the subject of immigration by showing a clip of VP Harris telling Guatamalens not to come here.
“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, you know, 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.”
Later AOC blamed the United States for causing this mass migration.
We cannot, as a country, no matter who it is, continue to show up in Latin America, and say that this is their fault, or that they are to blame, right? Because this seems like almost a precursor to say — in 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.”
Watch The Clip Below.
We had a policy in place that allowed those seeking asylum to stay in Mexico until their court date. Our border wasn't swamped and the detention centers were not overburdened. But the Biden Administrations didn't like that, because Trump did it and they clearly wanted open borders. Now Kamala Harris is telling Nicaraguans not to come here... but is currently doing nothing that will actually stop the flow of migrants.
AOC is right to attack the Biden Administration for the border, it was far better when Trump secured it.
