Socialist Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez made an embarrassing mistake when she posted a video of herself berating a politician about the migrant crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border.
On Wednesday, Ocasio-Cortez posted a video in which she debated a woman, whom she identified as a Republican, during a congressional hearing.
"Republicans have no solutions for immigration," she posted.
"No solutions here. No ideas here. But Democrats, we're authorizing 500,000 work permits so people can get on their feet and support themselves," said Ocasio-Cortez in the video she posted. "Democrats, we're proposing comprehensive immigration reform."
While the clip does indeed show her interlocutor being stumped by questions about immigration, Ocasio-Cortez incorrectly identified her as a Republican, when Jaime Williams is a Democrat member of the New York State Assembly.
Ocasio-Cortez was mocked and ridiculed over the misleading video.
"The person AOC is lecturing in this clip is not even a Republican. She is NY Assembly Member Jaime Williams, a Democrat from Brooklyn… Williams was objecting to spending $27 million of taxpayer money to house 2,000+ illegal migrants in her district. But go off clown,"
"AOC is so f***ing naive she posted a clip of a fellow Democrat and referred to her as a Republican. Maybe AOC should start listening to the members of her own party for solutions,"
"Unhinged and out-of-touch @AOC was caught lying -AGAIN- to support her usual divisive narrative,"
the account of the New York State Young Republicans. "Jaime Williams is a THREE TERM DEMOCRAT in the New York State Assembly who is opposed to
’s warehousing of illegal migrants."
The migrant crisis has worsened precipitously since President Joe Biden took up residence in the Oval Office. Despite the mayor of New York City saying migrants will
destroy the city,
Ocasio-Cortez has tried to
the crisis to her followers on social media.
