AOC Turns on Fellow Democrats Over Border Patrol Funding

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y. has taken aim at her fellow lawmakers, including those in her own party, for failing to pass measures that would monitor how Customs and Border Protection (CBP) uses congressional funding.

“And to think this week the GOP & Dem ‘Problem Solvers Caucus’ fought to eliminate ALL accountability amendments from funding,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted.

They just wrote a multi-billion dollar blank check for misconduct.”

The New Yorker was referring to a caucus whose co-chair has criticized her for targeting some Democrats over their decision to vote with Republicans. The Problem Solvers Caucus includes 48 members, evenly divided among Republicans and Democrats and dedicated to finding bipartisan agreement on major policy issues.
