On Tuesday’s MSNBC’s “The Rachel Maddow Show,” Representative Alexandria Occasional-Cortex (D-NY) leveled accusations at President Trump and the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency (ICE) claiming that they both “systematically violated human rights.”
Occasional-Cortex said, “I cannot tell you the amount of dysfunction that this president is advancing. We now have over 100 new members of the freshman class. I cannot even get laptops to my caseworkers in the Bronx and Queens to process the needs of constituents. We cannot get casework started because the president decided to hold the paychecks of everyday Americans hostage so that he can fulfill a campaign, I can’t call it a campaign promise, a fantasy. Not only that in the actual address there was falsehood after falsehood and we have to make sure we get the facts straight. Everyday immigrants commit crimes at a far lower rate than native-born Americans. And not only that but the women and children on the border seeking refuge and opportunity in the United States of America with nothing but the shirt on their backs are acting more American than any person who seeks to keep them out ever will be.”
It was a hell of a rant. Of course, none of it was true, being Democrat talking points, which are usually stocked with lies especially when the talking point is about the opposition telling lies. Occasional-Cortex used the sleight-of-hand argument claiming that “Everyday immigrants commit crimes at a far lower rate than native-born Americans,” which is actually true. However, the president wasn’t talking about everyday immigrants; he was talking about illegal aliens who commit crime at a higher rate than natural born Americans. The little game Democrats play is to conflate legal immigrants with illegal aliens.
The mental midget added, “It’s not surprising because even before he was elected president of the United States he has a proven track record of discrimination against anybody that’s non-white in the United States. He had been sued by the Nixon administration back in the day for not renting to black Americans. He has had controversy after controversy, so this is very consistent. It’s not just the continued lies throughout his administration, but frankly, it’s part of a very consistent pattern of his entire life.”
After saying Trump has “racist and violent rhetoric,” Ocasio-Cortez said, “The one thing the president has not talked about is the fact he has systematically engaged in the violation of human rights on our border. He has separated children from their families. He talked about what happened the day after Christmas, on the day of Christmas, a child died in ICE custody. The president should not be asking for more money to an agency that has systematically violated human rights. The president should be really defending why we are funding such an agency when right now what we are seeing is death. Right now what we are seeing is the violation of human rights. These children and families are being held in basically freezing boxes that no person should be maintained in for any amount of time let alone the amount of time they are being kept.”
This is so over the top, even for an imbecile like Occasional-Cortex, who like the rest of her mob conveniently forget that Donald Trump did not create the situation at the border, did not tell the parents of the children to bring them to our border, and was not the one who came up with the idea of separating children from their parents once in custody.
Consider the alternative that Occasional-Cortex never wants to admit. It sounds like righteous indignation to make the accusation, but would she prefer children to be in the general population with other adult illegal aliens they don’t know, who could at any time turn violent inside the cells? Does Occasional-Cortex think every illegal alien who brings a child with them to illegally cross over our border is entitled to a private room? She and other Democrats who spout the same bullschtein forget to mention that Trump signed an executive order to no longer separate children from their parents.
This is the kind of nonsense we can expect from Occasional-Cortex and the rest of the progressive freshman in Congress.
