AOC: Now, We’re Totally Not Open Borders

This surely isn’t Open Borders

Remember, we aren’t supposed to consider this Open Borders. Here’s a full quote via Ed Morrissey

I think migration, to me, is liberation. It’s the ability to move and be — it’s the freedom to be, really, is what we’re talking about.  And I think that all people should be free to here, and in our communities. Because I think that when you start viewing human beings as intrinsically valuable, you feel blessed that they have come to you with their presence. And that’s really the shift I think that we need to make as a country …

Ed also notes “The fact that AOC’s lecturing on the “blessing” of unexpected and unannounced migrants makes this an obvious plea for open borders and no bar on migration at all. ” It is open borders. Then we have this from the same town hall

(Breitbart) Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) said over the weekend that the United States government must have a “lifelong commitment” to illegal immigrant migrants separated from their parents at the U.S.-Mexico border and provide “mental healthcare services” to them “for the rest of their lives.”

Speaking at a town hall event in Queens, New York, Ocasio-Cortez, who has referred to migrant detention centers as “concentration camps,” reportedly argued that the U.S. government must make a “lifelong commitment” to migrant children because “even if you separate a kid from their parents for two days, you have already created life-long lasting trauma.”

“I believe we have responsibility to provide mental healthcare services to those children for the rest of their lives,” Ocasio-Cortez said, according to a Guardian report. “And there are children who have been separated that we have reunified, and it took about a year to reunify some of these kids with their parents. Lifelong trauma for which we, the United States, are responsible… And it chills me to my core to think about 20 years from now, when these kids grow up, the story that they will have about America.”

She’s advocating for every person who has shown up at the border unannounced/entered illegally to allowed to stay with no conditions. That’s open borders.

Go ahead, Democrats, run on this.
