AOC mocked for criticising Biden

Far-left Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) was mocked online Tuesday evening for giving only a mild criticism to President Joe Biden’s decision to open an immigrant detention facility for kids—something she called “concentration camps” when it was under President Donald Trump.

Ocasio-Cortez’s statement addressing the issue came after critics started to call her out online over her silence over the issue after she made a spectacle over it under the last administration. The Washington Post reported this week that the Biden administration reopened a facility that the Trump administration previously used for over a month to house migrant children amid a surge at the border. Biden had to reopen the facility because coronavirus restrictions allow for fewer kids to be housed in the same facility and because there has been an increase of minors apprehended at the southern border.

Under the Trump administration, Ocasio-Cortez repeatedly called the facilities “concentration camps,” which is factually false. Immigration detention facilities are not the same as concentration camps.

“This is not okay, never has been okay, never will be okay – no matter the administration or party,” AOC started out. However, a short time later she started to change her tune, adding, “Our immigration system is built on a carceral framework. It’s no accident that challenging how we approach both these issues are considered ‘controversial’ stances. They require reimagining our relationship to each other and challenging common assumptions we take for granted.”

“It’s only 2 mos into this admin & our fraught, unjust immigration system will not transform in that time,” Ocasio-Cortez continued, in what appeared to be a reversal of her earlier statement, which was only a mild criticism compared to her over-the-top false claims made during the Trump-era. “That’s why bold reimagination is so impt.”
