Democrat Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Defends Barring Press To Protect Criminal Illegal Aliens

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was protecting illegal aliens.

She will win because that district will vote Democrat regardless of who it is. That is who promises the most free stuff will always win.

The MSM made this young lady famous but have realized too late after several interviews that she really knows very little. I believe she realizes this and knows their next step is to destroy her credibility if she has any left.

Replying to a reporter who questioned why the event was closed, she tweeted, “Our community is 50% immigrant. Folks are victims of DV, trafficking, + have personal medical issues.
