AOC says ‘it’s not OK’, but doesn’t fly to the border to scream through a chain link fence this time

Democrats have been blasted as hypocritical for reinstating the notorious ‘kids in cages’ detention policies at the border that they previously used to attack President Trump.
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki was questioned Tuesday by Peter Doocy, who asked why Biden administration was reopening one of the very facilities Democrats previously labelled a ‘human rights abuse’.
Psaki argued that “This is not kids being kept in cages,” and claimed “this is a facility that was reopened that is going to follow the same standards as other [Department of Health and Human Services] facilities.”
Psaki continued “That’s never our intention – of replicating immigration policies of the past administration. But we are in a circumstance where we are not going to expel unaccompanied minors at the border.”
Psaki also argued that because “there is a pandemic going on,” the holding facilities must be used, rather than the Office of Refugee Resettlement.
In other words, ‘its OK when we do it’.
Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez commented on the development, but only mildly criticised Biden for the exact same thing she previously labelled “concentration camps” and created a staged ‘crying’ photo op over during Trump’s presidency.
