AOC Applauds Employees Refusing to Sell Goods to Migrant Detention Center

Recently, some employees at furniture and houseware retail giant Wayfair decided to strike after the company refused to stop providing bedroom furniture for a detention facility in Texas which houses detained children illegally in the US.

The decision prompted praise from Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who said “This is what solidarity looks like” while continuing to condemn US officials attempting to enforce immigration laws.

Ocasio-Cortez recently elicited bipartisan outrage and criticism after comparing detention facilities to Nazi-era concentration camps.

Social media commentary overwhelmingly heaped criticism on Ocasio-Cortez for what many said would only make life worse for children currently detained.
