AOC calls Biden border invasion a 'false narrative' promoted by conservatives

"We're going to keep pretending this is a crisis while contributing to actual problems."


On Friday, Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) claimed that the crisis at the border is a "false narrative" created by Republicans who are being "xenophobic."

In an interview with Alex Wagner on MSNBC, Ocasio-Cortez said "The idea that Republicans, in order to win an election, say we need to hermetically seal the border when they know that that would be— that is economic self-sabotage to the US economy, and they are saying let's do it anyway. And to compensate for the negative effects we're gonna allow and throw people's kids into factories. That is what they are doing in rolling back child-labor laws while being as xenophobic and anti-immigrant as they are, and while ginning up this, this false narrative about this being a crisis."

"We're going to keep pretending this is a crisis while contributing to actual problems," she said about Republicans. "And then we're going to block the solution so that we can campaign on it over and over and over."

Ocasio-Cortez concluded alleged that Republicans have used the crisis at the border to cause "animosity and destruction in this country, and racism in this country." She added, "Because that's the only thing that the Republican Party even is standing on at this point."

Earlier this week, it was revealed that the Biden administration is in the process of deciding if it should act to make it harder for illegal immigrants to get asylum into the country, and make it illegal to deport others after Congress denied him more emergency authority to shut down the border. All this without getting the $60 billion the administration has demanded to secure the border of Ukraine.

House Speaker Mike Johnson noted the time that President Biden didn't need Congress to grant him more authority to shut the border, because he already had it. During his first days in office in 2021, Biden reversed several of Trump's executive orders securing the border. By the time he took office, with campaign promises of opening the border, migrants were already lining up at the border to get in. 

Trump had a policy in place where those seeking asylum in the US would wait in Mexico for their cases to be heard in US courts. Biden reversed that, allowing those who are seeking asylum to apply for that status at the border then be released into the US to await trail often more than 5 years into the future.

Since Biden has been president, there have been 7.3 million illegal immigrant encounters with Customs and Border Protection agents. In 2023, there were a record 2,475,699 encounters with CBP.

Democrat mayors, such as Eric Adams in New York City, began speaking out about the issues they are having with the massive influx of illegal immigrants into their cities last year, and how unsustainable the crisis is.
