Ocasio-Cortez Explains Decision To Vote Against Ending Government Shutdown On Instagram

New York Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez voted against a short-term bill to reopen the government on Wednesday. She explained via Instagram stories that she opposed the bill because it contained Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE) funding.

“Most of our votes are pretty straightforward, but today was a tough/nuanced call,” she wrote as the caption on the Instagram story video. “We didn’t vote with the party because one of the spending bills included ICE funding, and our community felt strongly about not funding that.”

I understand why stories about this nitwit are being posted - she's the latest thing indicative of the stereotypical Millennial (fairly or unfairly) - thin skinned, ignorant yet cock-sure of her infallibility.

But I sure am getting tired of seeing her face.

There's nothing nuanced about voting against the enforcement of laws to protect citizens.
Principles matter. Words matter.

She's not smart enough or "nuanced" enough that her abolish ICE stance means abolishing the Customs part of that thee letter abbreviation.  Those customs agents play a vital role in investigating and inspect persons,  goods, common carriers, and merchandise, arriving in or departing from the United States or between states.

Alex from The Bronx thinks ICE is Border Patrol only...and we all know she's pro open borders.
 
The libs/dems of today are the Quislings of former years. The cowards who would vote a fraud into office in exchange for handouts from the devil.

Here lies in honored glory an American soldier, known but to God

THE ESTABLISHMENT IS THE PROBLEM...NOT THE SOLUTION

Republicans Don't Need A Back Bench...They Need a BACKBONE!
