On Friday, Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez doubled down on her criticism of the transport of migrants from the US-Mexico border to various parts of the country.

In a tweet, the New York Democrat called recent actions by Florida Governor Ron DeSantis and Texas Governor Greg Abbott “appalling” and likened them to “traffic.”

Without naming the two governors, Ocasio-Cortez also said Republicans were guilty of “crimes against humanity.”

“It is appalling that far-right politicians seem to have decided that falling before an election is their usual time to commit crimes against humanity on refugees,” she tweeted.

Ocasio-Cortez added, “Don’t normalize this. Lying and trafficking people for TV and clicks is not politics as usual. It’s abuse.”

In a pair of other posts, the Bronx native suggested people should refrain from calling migrants “illegal” because “most American families” have at some point migrated to the country.

“By today’s standards, most American families would have been considered undocumented or trafficked at some point in their family history,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted. “For the most part, people didn’t need lawyers and years of treatment to come to the United States until immigration became a racialized issue.”

The tweets come as Abbott orchestrated the transport of two buses full of migrants to the Naval Observatory in Washington, D.C. DeSantis also sent planes of migrants to Martha’s Vineyard.

Previously, Abbott transported migrants to New York and other areas.

The convoys suggest the governor is “struggling” to run his own state and perhaps he should consider another job, she said.

“I remember how people stepped up to help Texans when you left them cold and hungry during the freeze. We will welcome those families too. They have so much to offer,” Ocasio-Cortez said, referring to the crisis. of electricity in February 2021 caused by three severe winter storms.

“You seem to be struggling to do your job, though. Maybe you should ask yourself if this is the right job for you,” she concluded.

Abbott defended his decision to send the migrants as senior Biden administration officials, including President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris, have repeatedly denied a border crisis.
