"The photos, taken by The Associated Press, were from 2014, during the Obama administration, but were presented by liberal activists as if they showed the effects of Trump’s immigration policy now."

AOC did not blame the Biden administration for the unvetted, unmasked, unvaccinated illegal aliens.
"The father of the 2-year-old Honduran girl featured on Time magazine and emblematic for the separation of immigrant children and parents, told The Washington Post Thursday the young girl was never separated from her mother."

“What is happening here is not the same as what happened during the Trump administration, where they took babies out of the arms of their mothers and deported their families and permanently traumatized these children, some of whom we don’t know will ever be reunified with their family again,” AOC said.
Smugglers, under cover of night, scaled a 14 ft. border barrier and cruelly dropped 2 young children in the middle of the New Mexico desert. The girls, ages 3 & 5, were left miles from the nearest residence. Thank you STN Agents for rescuing these children! @CBP @CBPWestTexas pic.twitter.com/U91y2g8Lk1

“This is not an invasion,” she said. “U.S. foreign policy has contributed to the destabilization of these regions … where the children are fleeing. … We have decades of interventionist foreign policies that have contributed to this issue.”
More from The Western Journal:
Reminder: Venezuela — which has the world’s largest oil reserves — was once a wealthy country.
As recently as 2001, it was the richest country in South America, but it has since cratered into poverty under socialist dictators.
AOC thinks giving out more free stuff and blaming the United States for all the problems in the world is a solution to Biden’s border apocalypse.
In reality, all it will do is encourage more illegal border crossings and the continued deterioration of the U.S. economy and national security.
