AOC Apologies to Illegal Aliens ‘On Behalf of the US’

At a congressional hearing on Wednesday, Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) apologized to two illegal aliens who were testifying before the House Oversight Civil Rights and Liberties Subcommittee, Daily Caller reports.

The illegals in question are allegedly dealing with “serious medical concerns” while also facing deportation. Ocasio-Cortez took a moment to “apologize” to them “on behalf of the United States of America,” which she claimed was “targeting” them and “many people in the United States.”

She also claimed that the immigrants offer “intrinsic value…to everybody that [they] encounter,” without explaining what the intrinsic value actually was.

Later at that same hearing, Ocasio-Cortez clashed with former ICE Director Tom Homan, with Homan criticizing the lack of legislative progress in the new Congress, saying “If you don’t like it, then legislate.”

In that same hearing, Homan was called “jingoistic” and “bigoted” by former DNC chair Debbie Wasserman-Schultz (D-Fla.), while Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) called him “ruthless and inhumane.”
