Biden open Kids cage camps!

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., had some strong words for President Biden’s administration after news surfaced that it was reopening a child migrant detention facility in Texas.

“This is not okay, never has been okay, never will be okay – no matter the administration or party,” the progressive icon tweeted on Tuesday.

She added: “It’s only 2 mos into this admin & our fraught, unjust immigration system will not transform in that time. That’s why bold reimagination is so impt. DHS shouldn’t exist, agencies should be reorganized, ICE gotta go, ban for-profit detention, create climate refugee status & more.”

Our immigration system is built on a carceral framework. It’s no accident that challenging how we approach both these issues are considered “controversial” stances. They require reimagining our relationship to each other and challenging common assumptions we take for granted.

Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., piled on, tweeting: “Multiple administrations have made the callous choice to lock up thousands of children seeking refuge in the United States of America.”

“As long as we see people seeking a better life as ‘aliens’ instead of fellow human beings, our immigration system will continue to fail us,” she added.
