Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, (D-NY) went live on Instagram Tuesday night to discuss the massive wave of illegal immigrants entering America through the southern border.
“They wanna say, ‘But what about the surge?” AOC told her audience. “Well, first of all, just gut check, stop. Anyone who’s using the term ‘surge’ around you consciously is trying to invoke a militaristic frame.”
Next, Ocasio-Cortez claimed referring to the surge as an invasion is an example of white supremacy.
“And that’s a problem because this is not a surge, these are children and they are not insurgents and we are not being invaded, which by the way is a White supremacist idea-philosophy, the idea that if another is coming in the population that this is an invasion of who we are.”
