Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez just outraised even Nancy Pelosi such is her social media fundraising acumen. But that doesn’t mean she knows what she is talking about.
In fact, she seems to know as little as the famously misinformed Hollywood starlet Alyssa Milano.
Look, we should demand better from AOC as she is currently in government and should know the truth.
As for Alyssa Milano, half-baked comments like this are why we do not want Hollywood celebrities messing in our politics.
Because they don’t know what they are talking about. From Fox News:
Progressives unleashed on Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Wednesday over reports that the agency arrested 90 foreign-born students who had enrolled in a fake university, but someone forgot to tell them that the sting operation predates their favorite target, President Trump.
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., and others reacted to news of the arrests by accusing ICE of entrapping students and implying that the tactic was new under the Trump administration. As it turns out, former President Obama’s administration not only founded the fake university, it engaged in a similar operation in New Jersey in 2016.
“Earlier this year, Congress rushed to approve BILLIONS more $ for ICE + CBP,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted. “I saw members voting YES w/o even a summary of the bill. Nobody cared then how we’d pay for it. Now ICE is setting up fake universities to trap students. Yet were [sic] called radical for opposing it.”
“This is cruel and appalling,” Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., tweeted. Actress and activist Alyssa Milano similarly seemed shocked by the news.

Now ICE is setting up fake universities to trap students.
Yet we were called radical for opposing it.
