Last week, Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez slammed the Biden Administration for reopening a migrant facility for children, tweeting “This is not okay, never has been okay, never will be okay – no matter the administration or party.”
Where’s Chuck Schumer?
Last year, when the Trump Administration opened these migrant facilities for children, Schumer harshly criticized the administration, claiming it was “inhumane.” But now, the cat’s got his tongue, even as progressives like AOC raise alarms with the Biden Administration’s policy.
Statement from NRSC Spokeswoman Lizzie Litzow: “While AOC is willing to criticize her own party on immigration issues, Chuck Schumer remains silent. He criticized President Trump for policies instituted during the Obama Administration, but refuses to stand with migrant children being held in detention facilities when it’s the policy of a Democrat President. Apparently, his advocacy on behalf of those in need is less important than his fealty to his party’s leader.”
