My guess is that whoever handles this person is trying to convolute the message about today's issue - not the issue of half a century ago - which is child sex trafficking, children barred in cages for the sex trade.
AOC: "Sexual assault is about the abuse of power. It is always women who are always marginalized. It is the young, it is the interns, it is the immigrant, it is the trans. They are always most at risk because society listens to them the least."
Now it is true that Homeland Security/ICE kept its detainees in "egregious" conditions, in some cases - "open packages of raw chicken leaking blood onto refrigerators, spoiled lunch meat and bread that was already moldy."
When I find myself confused as to why a sitting Congresswoman would promote the sex trafficking of children, by advocating their release into the United States in the hands of untrackable "family" members - I ask myself "what could be her motivation?"
I just can't tell you. Her comments don't make sense to me. But I do know one thing. The more we're triggered by Hitler back then, the less we're talking about child sex trafficking today. Trafficking makes $$$ for people who fund people like AOC.
