New York Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez claimed on Monday, without any evidence, that the Trump administration “has been criminal from the start.”
While attacking the Trump administrations immigration policies, Ocasio-Cortez responded to a tweet Rep. Pramila Jayapal, D-Wash., who boasted over the weekend about being able to “successfully assist 5 asylum seekers – 2 unaccompanied minors, a mother and her 9-year-old child, and a young man with a serious medical condition – into the United States.”
Ocasio-Cortez thanked Jayapal for getting involved and helping the illegal aliens in the caravan, writing, “It shouldn’t have to take a member of Congress physically showing up herself to get ICE to stop violating international law *as an exception.*”
“From jailing children to banning folks based on their religion, this Admin has been criminal from the start,” Ocasio-Cortez continued in the tweet.
Thank you, @RepJayapal.

Ocasio-Cortez provided absolutely no evidence at all to support her claim nor has the Trump administration been “jailing children.”
The New York socialist has been criticizing the Trump administrations immigration policies for quite some time.
As part of her radical proposals and policies, the 29-year-old socialist has also advocated for the abolishment of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency.
“Alex believes that if we are to uphold civic justice, we must abolish ICE and see to it that our undocumented neighbors are treated with the dignity and respect owed to all people, regardless of citizenship status,” her platform reads on her website.
Ocasio-Cortez’s comments are just one of many that have raised eyebrows recently.
Over the weekend, Ocasio-Cortez attacked White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders and implied she’s a liar for no reason at all.
Last week, she bizarrely compared her election victory to “establishing civil rights” and the United States landing on the moon.
Before that, the young Democrat said she feels like an “American revolutionary.”
She also claimed during a press conference in Washington, D.C., that “people are going to die” if her “Green New Deal” is not passed in Congress, which many have argued is nothing more than a Trojan Horse for the implementation of full-blown socialism in America.
“People are going to die if we don’t start addressing climate change ASAP. It’s not enough to think it’s “important.” We must make it urgent,” she tweeted.
Ocasio-Cortez also recently found herself in hot water after she compared the migrant caravan marching toward the U.S. border to Jews fleeing Nazi Germany during the Holocaust.
She had also struggled mightily to explain how to pay for the $218 trillion “Medicare for all” plan she supports, said it was a “no brainer” that President Trump should be impeached, and is in favor of eliminating the Electoral College.
And now, without a shred of evidence, she claims the Trump administration is “criminal” and suggested it has been breaking the law.
