AOC Goes off on The Billions Spent on ICE and Border Patrol in Tweet Storm

Progressive lawmaker Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, took to Twitter to criticize the billions in spending increases for ICE and the border patrol and lamented those who claim to be “fiscally responsible” but did not oppose these spending increases.


Earlier this year, Congress rushed to approve BILLIONS more $ for ICE + CBP.

I saw members voting YES w/o even a summary of the bill. Nobody cared then how we’d pay for it.

Now ICE is setting up fake universities to trap students.

Yet we were called radical for opposing it.

This is honestly one of the big reasons why the argument about “pay-fors” in healthcare, housing, etc so often are made in bad faith.

I see decisions made every day that cost the American public billions of dollars a year for bogus reasons and nobody asks how we pay for it.

None of the politicians who brand themselves “fiscally responsible” ever raise concern about rushing to shower ICE & CBP w/ $billions with 0 guardrails or oversight.

None of them ask about how we pay for corrupt contracts or mass incarceration.

Ask yourself why that is.
