In a new Instagram Live session, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez takes issue with the chaos at the U.S.-Mexico border being labeled a “border crisis.”
“It’s not a border crisis. It’s an imperialism crisis. It’s a climate crisis. It’s a trade crisis,” AOC claims.
“Anyone who is using the term ‘surge’ around you consciously is trying to invoke a militaristic frame. This is not a surge. These are children and they are not insurgents,” she also says.
