From the men and women protecting and enforcing our border to President Trump to our Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) holding facilities, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) loves to denounce and condemn the best.
One thing she refuses to denounce, however, is a terror attack that was attempted on an ICE facility just a few days ago. In a video from Rebel Media, a reporter asks AOC and fellow Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) if they denounce the attack on the ICE facility.
People, particularly politicians, refuse to answer very straightforward questions when the answer will incriminate them, or worse, make them unelectable. Just like when @Ilhan could not say "I did not marry my brother", she can not say "Terrorism is bad, even if it is Antifa." pic.twitter.com/nLnime5Q44— Keean Bexte (@TheRealKeean) July 15, 2019
The reporter also asks if AOC feels "responsible" for the attack after the rhetoric she had used in an Instagram video -- where she called ICE facilities concentration camps -- had shown up in the accused terrorist’s manifesto.

The terrorist used "concentration camps" 4 times.
Ocasio-Cortez is the person who started the lie that the detention facilities are "concentration camps"
Now that federal officers were targeted, AOC is silenthttps://t.co/AgCUGMtaVt
At the writing of this article AOC has still yet to condemn the terror attack but has found more than enough time to attack the president regarding recent tweets of his, even holding a full on press conference declaring him as being racist.
Until Republican officials denounce yesterday’s explicitly racist statements (which should be easy!), we sadly have no choice but to assume they condone it.— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) July 15, 2019
It is extremely disturbing that the *entire* GOP caucus is silent. Is this their agenda? https://t.co/NXIUiPAPls
