New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez never seems to think before she acts.
That’s why Ocasio-Cortez always ends up in the middle of a self-defeating controversy.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez instantly regretted picking this fight about Ron DeSantis.
Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez was one of the many liberals melting like snowflakes over Florida Governor Ron DeSantis shipping 50 illegal aliens to the wealthy Democrat summer playground of Martha’s Vineyard.
Ocasio-Cortez is one of the leading supporters for open borders and even wants to defund ICE.
That’s why Ocasio-Cortez was desperate to gaslight Americans into thinking that rich, white liberals living in a sanctuary state had no problem with being confronted with the consequences of their support for open borders and the Biden administration’s illegal alien invasion.
Ocasio-Cortez tried to turn the tables on Governor DeSantis by falsely claiming the elite, mostly white, liberals that live on Martha’s Vineyard welcomed 50 illegal aliens into their midst and celebrated their presence.
“Shout out to Massachusetts and the people of Martha’s Vineyard for showing the world what the best of America looks like. It’s unsurprising that they also send some of the best to Congress, like @ewarren, @EdMarkey, @AyannaPressley, @RepMcGovern, @RepKClarkand so many more!” Ocasio-Cortez wrote on social media.
What Ocasio-Cortez claimed was nowhere close to true.
In fact, within 24 hours the National Guard arrived on Martha’s Vineyard to round up the 50 illegal aliens and ship them to a military detention facility.
Texas Senator Ted Cruz pointed out this reality in response to Ocasio-Cortez’s tweet.
“The rich, liberal ‘people of Martha’s Vineyard’ DEPORTED THE ILLEGAL ALIENS WITHIN 24 HOURS. Glad to know that @aoc now tells us that’s ‘what the best of America looks like’!” Senator Cruz wrote.
HAPPENING NOW: Migrants, flown into Martha’s Vineyard by Fl’s governor, are boarding buses. They’ll be heading to Joint Base Cape Cod, according to officials. 125 Mass National Guard members are being activated to assist. @NBCNews pic.twitter.com/RLwxNPu8GM

Ocasio-Cortez then tried to distract from the reality that wealthy liberals in Martha’s Vineyard could not handle 50 illegal aliens before demanding the military show up and remove the illegal aliens by falsely claiming that Governor DeSantis lied to the illegal aliens to get them on the plane.
“They were not deported. They were brought to shelter in the US. With no help from you. Why lie to and traffic Venezuelan refugees? For votes? This is nuestra familia Latina. You should be standing up for them. If it’s one thing we can count on you for, it’s being una vergüenza,”
Ocasio-Cortez shot back.
But that is not true either.
Before getting on the plane the illegal aliens were provided with maps clearly marked as showing that their destination was Martha’s Vineyard.
The military evacuating 50 illegal aliens from Martha’s Vineyard also proved DeSantis’ point.
When a tiny number of illegal aliens arrive in one of the richest and most exclusive liberal enclaves in America no less than the military is on the scene to provide support for what is deemed a crisis.
But when tiny border towns see tens of thousands of illegal aliens deposited in their neighborhoods Democrats say tough luck because diversity is our strength.
