New York Democratic Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez wants 5,000 caseworkers sent to the U.S.-Mexico border rather than American troops.

The Democratic socialist fired off a tweet on Monday morning that troops securing and defending America’s southern border created a “moral crisis” and that the only solution was to send thousands of caseworkers to help the illegal aliens in the migrant caravan.
What if instead of sending 5k troops to the border, we had sent 5k caseworkers to review + process visa applications?
In addition to averting moral crisis, it also would‘ve saved enormous amt of resources. But we don’t talk about the financial recklessness of GOP admins, do we?

Just like she has no earthly idea how to pay for the $218 trillion socialist giveaway plan she supports, Ocasio-Cortez didn’t say who would be paying for the caseworkers.
Why would they help illegal aliens who are storming the border, attempting to illegally enter the country, and chunking rocks at U.S. Border Patrol officials.
As bad as her tweet was on Monday, what she said the day before may have been even worse.
On Sunday, the 29-year-old socialist argued that the migrant caravan swarming the border is comparable to Jews fleeing Nazi Germany during the Holocaust.
A large group of migrants were throwing rocks and attempting to barge into the country at the port of entry connecting Tijuana, Mexico and San Diego, California.
In response, Ocasio-Cortez took to Twitter to condemn the U.S. for securing the border and forbidding the migrants from entering the country.
Asking to be considered a refugee & applying for status isn’t a crime.
It wasn’t for Jewish families fleeing Germany.
It wasn’t for targeted families fleeing Rwanda.
It wasn’t for communities fleeing war-torn Syria.
And it isn’t for those fleeing violence in Central America. https://t.co/qhv7Rr1itn

U.S. Customs and Border Patrol, with assistance from troops President Donald Trump sent to the border, closed the port of entry and used tear gas to send the migrants back toward Mexico.
A Twitter account called The Reagan Battalion shared a video of several migrants throwing rocks and other objects over the border toward U.S. Border Patrol agents and troops.

Ocasio-Cortez was comparing migrants who tried to storm into the country and tossed rocks at U.S. officials to innocent Jews who attempted to flee during World War II to escape being murdered by the Nazis.

Her sickening comments have drawn scorn from many, but this is hardly the first time she’s made controversial remarks.
Last Friday, Ocasio-Cortez cautioned that “people are going to die” if the U.S. government does not address climate change.
Last week, the socialist complained that the 16 Democrats who signed a letter vowing to oppose House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s bid to become Speaker of the House are not “diverse” enough and that’s there’s too many males.
Earlier this month, she urged her supporters to help ensure Democrats take back “all three chambers of Congress.”
The three branches of government are the legislative, executive, and judicial, and it was quite obvious to many that the socialist darling had no idea what she was talking about.
The Democratic socialist also previously attacked the electoral system because she can’t receive her congressional salary until she’s officially sworn in as a member of Congress.
With all of her comments considered, she will begin receiving $174,000 a year when she’s sworn in as a member of Congress in two months.
