AOC tells Ted Cruz “your resignation is 84 days past due” during Twitter feud

Thursday AOC tweeted:

A lot of people who are just now suddenly horrified at the dehumanizing conditions at our border are the same folks who dehumanize immigrants + helped build these cages in the 1st place.

When we tried to stop this infrastructure over a year ago,we were overruled by BOTH parties.

A politician’s strength isn’t based on a trip. It’s based on their policy and voting RECORD.

And the fact is a LOT of Ted Cruz types who are now going down to meet refugee children in boats outfitted w/ machine guns are the ones who helped create this problem in the first place.

For all those who are brand new to this & only care about cages on a partisan basis, catch up: we‘ve been fighting our own party on immigration for a long time.

This is the result of Congress endlessly dumping money into CBP/ICE cages vs humane policy

Texas Senator Ted Cruz tweeted:

[email protected] explains the real Dem position: abolish ICE.

Full open borders. Which would make the #BidenBorderCrisis even worse.

She says nothing else works.

Really?

Last year, we had the lowest illegal immigration IN 45 YEARS.

This year, we have the highest in 20 years.

AOC replied:

Ted, this is pretty rich coming from someone who fled their own home (and responsibilities) during an environmental crisis to cross the border and seek refuge in Mexico.

Also you funded cages, expanded cages, and yet you’re complaining about cages. You have no policy, just puff.

Maybe Mexico shouldn’t let YOU in the next time you try to run away from your job to sip umbrella drinks in Cancún.

A reminder that your resignation is 84 days past due. At least.
