Sanctimonious AOC Takes the Stand
The liberal firebrand stood by her uncorroborated claims that detained migrants were forced to drink from toilet bowls in a passionate hearing that featured her and her extreme allies.
Per Fox News:
The House Oversight Committee hearing Friday on child separation included a host of high-profile witnesses. Among them were the freshman Democratic lawmakers -- known informally as the "Squad" -- who recounted their recent visit to the border, which itself became a flashpoint in the already raging debate over the migrant surge, poor conditions at detention centers and who's to blame.
At the hearing, Ocasio-Cortez maintained: “This is a manufactured crisis because the cruelty is manufactured.”
The lawmaker -- who demanded to be sworn in before her testimony despite Chairman Elijah Cummings, D-Md., noting this was not normally done -- said that blame was not to be placed on border agents, but on the Trump administration. She took aim at senior adviser Stephen Miller.
Testifying next, Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich, broke into tears as she recalled what she saw at the border, and also scolded President Trump and others for using the phrase illegal immigrants.
