Now that she has won her place in the new Democrat House majority, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez who has become the Lady Gaga of socialism has been unleashed and is determined to put her mark on a party that is looking for new leadership.
The 29-year-old taco bar revolutionary has been babbling even more nonsense since the election while the adoring media all but scatters rose petals before her in advance of her taking her oath of office. This includes glossing over the absurd, outrageous, ignorant and often inflammatory statements that she dispenses from her Twitter account.
Ocasio-Cortez can attribute a good amount of her appeal to the demonizing of U.S. Immigration And Customs Enforcement as per her rallying cry to “Abolish ICE” and she continues to exploit animosity to federal law enforcement officers who now have targets on their backs for enforcing immigration law.
She has also latched onto the migrant invasion caravan’s initial arrival at the nation’s southern border to promote herself and appeal to the emotions and ignorance of her legions of fans.
On Monday, Ocasio-Cortez called for 5,000 caseworkers to be sent to the border to help with the influx of
illegal aliens refugees instead of the military troops sent there by President Trump.
Presumably, they would also be carrying plenty of red carpets.
What if instead of sending 5k troops to the border, we had sent 5k caseworkers to review + process visa applications?
In addition to averting moral crisis, it also would‘ve saved enormous amt of resources. But we don’t talk about the financial recklessness of GOP admins, do we?

Democratic New York Congresswoman-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez proposed her own solution to the continued unrest at the U.S.-Mexico border, claiming that the government should deploy caseworkers in place of troops.
Suggesting that a military presence and response at the border created a “moral crisis,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted, “What if instead of sending [5,000] troops to the border, we had sent [5,000] caseworkers to review [and] process visa applications?”
She continued, “In addition to averting moral crisis, it also would‘ve saved [an] enormous [amount] of resources. But we don’t talk about the financial recklessness of GOP admins, do we?”
The “future” of the Democratic party continued to make political hay out of what many have called an invasion only hours after she shamefully compared the treatment of migrants who stormed the border between Tijuana and California to that of Jews during the Holocaust.
Asking to be considered a refugee & applying for status isn’t a crime.
It wasn’t for Jewish families fleeing Germany.
It wasn’t for targeted families fleeing Rwanda.
It wasn’t for communities fleeing war-torn Syria.
And it isn’t for those fleeing violence in Central America. https://t.co/qhv7Rr1itn

This uninformed, overly emotional and ideological millennial will continue to be a fountain of nonsense for as long as she isn’t called on it by the media or her own party which isn’t going to happen.
