(AbsoluteNews.com) – During former President Donald Trump’s administration, the Democratic Party repeatedly attacked him for his zero-tolerance immigration policy. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, in particular, was hostile toward the GOP president. But it doesn’t look like she is expending that same energy to President Joe Biden.
On February 23, after reports emerged that Biden was also detaining immigrant minors, AOC took to Twitter to defend him. She called it “not okay” but said that he is only two months into his administration and the system isn’t going to “transform in that time.” Republicans immediately called her out.
A slap on the wrist from AOC to Joe Biden.

The fact of the matter is that AOC’s position and that of her leftist colleagues is completely hypocritical. Trump was raked over the coals for trying to keep America safe, but when Biden implements a similar policy, there’s either silence from the Democratic Party or excuses. Wouldn’t it be nice if they held themselves to the same standards as they do everyone else?
