AOC Rips Biden, Says His Border Policies Copy Trump's

New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D) attacked President Joe Biden's border policies, claiming they are "almost replications" of those put in place by former President Donald Trump.

Ocasio-Cortez shared the view during her first town hall of the year in her New York district.

"This is very important because what we are seeing with this bussing situation, a lot of the folks who are arriving here want to work … The problem is that our federal government does not allow them to work," she said.

"And because during that gap, it takes anywhere between six months to a year just to get a work authorization, then we start seeing that these folks have no choice but to rely on public services and support," Ocasio-Cortez continued.

"So the problem is that that package, that proposed rule, is also appended to very concerning … cutbacks, or almost replications of certain Trump-era asylum policies," she added.

The discussion focused on migrants coming to New York and overwhelming public services, something discussed by New York City Mayor Eric Adams (D).

"We expect more from our national leaders to address this in a real way," Adams said during his trip, adding in a radio interview that it would cost billions.

"Our price tag could be anywhere from $1.5 to $2 billion. That's the price tag that we are facing," he added.

The latest comments by the congresswoman may seek to blame both Biden and Trump for border concerns impacting New York, but the real issue is lack of enforcing current laws at the border.
