Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D., N.Y.) on Thursday criticized U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement and argued in support of undocumented Latinos in the United States, saying the latter cannot be "criminalized" on "Native" U.S. land because they are "descendants of Native people."

The freshman congresswoman went on to suggest ICE has not given due respect to those who enter the country illegally. The United Sates must "respect for the right of human mobility," she said before adding, "because it is a right."

That's straight out of a recent UN deal that many countries are actually signing on to that thankfully the US is not. Apparently lefties like aoc think the US should get on board with that. Scary stuff.

I'll give her an ounce of credit for actually voicing that she's really for open borders.

There's a ton of people talking about the immigration issue who simply want open borders, but don't say it. Our daughter, for instance (22 now), honestly doesn't even get why any borders exist. :facepalm:

Interestingly, her office has now taken down their page describing the GND.

Maybe some of the grammatical errors embarassed them more than some of the ideas, who knows?
Or maybe the figured out she is looney tunes and will NEVER get re-elected with that plan and they took it down for her.

She's safe in her district. It's what damage she'll do to the Dems in general that is the problem for them. The "old guard" is going to have to deal with her.
it seems to me that the old guard (as you called her) is playing Alexandria Ocasio-Castro as the fool, and is stringing it out in public for nefarious purposes.... just saying

Watch the 2 videos here of her rambling on to a committee. The first one is on Occupy Democrats & numerous other sites with James Corden & others falling all over themselves to say he she really schooled the guys on the committee.

Then watch the 2nd one. It's the part that's cut out of the first video & it's priceless. One of the committee members calmly takes about one minute to tell her she's wrong on pretty much everything she's spent five minutes on.

You can bet your boots that there's plenty of animosity within her own party right now & there's not a microphone or camera she doesn't love. Her increased exposure is gonna bite her eventually.

Except that her own party is looking for someone that is more mainstream and actually has working brain cells to run against her in the primary.
