It appears as though the Democratic Party’s civil war is heating up once again, and this time over an issue that has been one of the more salient ideological points that the party was looking to make during the Biden presidency.
In this reawakening of the liberal divide, it is young firebrand Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez who is taking the mainstream Democrats to task.
On Tuesday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “All In,” Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) stated that “the Biden administration’s immigration policy writ large is not working. It’s wrong, and it’s inhumane.”
And that that Vice President Kamala Harris’ warning to migrants that they shouldn’t come seems like a precursor to “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.”
Harris had previously told Guatemalans and other would-be migrants that they would be turned away at the US border – an idea that appears to be fully incongruous with the whims of the ultraliberal wing of the party.
AOC would go on to suggest something wild about the origins of the issue:
Ocasio-Cortez said, “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, 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.”
Harris was blasted by the mainstream media in recent weeks over her unwillingness to visit the southern border, where a full-fledged humanitarian crisis is underway on her watch.
