Freshman rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez apologized to two illegal immigrants that we’re likely going to be deported under a Trump administration policy.
Ocasio-Cortez told the two illegal immigrants:
“I’d like to apologize to you on behalf of the United States of America for the dehumanizing policies that they are pursuing, that are frankly targeting you and targeting many people in the United States… we’re fighting for a better country that we can be proud of when it comes to how we treat all people and understanding the circumstances that they’re coming from. And I’d also like to recognize the intrinsic value that you have and offer to everybody that you encounter in her country.”

Per DailyCaller, the New York Democrat was speaking to Maria Isabel Bueso and Johnathan Sanchez, two migrants living in the U.S. with serious medical concerns.
In August, the Trump administration changed a policy that allowed illegal immigrants to be shielded from deportation if they were getting life-saving medical care in the U.S. The policy did not call for their deportation, however, it simply transferred the consideration of the deportation from United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).
