It is now America’s burden to liberate migrants from their illogical drive to self-imprison.

Or so implied Ms. Cortez last week.


Sharing a photo of hundreds of women, men and small children packed into a parking lot at a Border Patrol station in El Paso, Texas, Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has called on Americans to reflect “on the course of action” the country has chosen to respond to the influx of migrant families arriving at the U.S.-Mexico border in search of asylum.


As in this.


Her drivel continues.  It always does.


“This is America. This is Texas. This is our…course of action, the one we chose. I cannot and will not accept it,” the New York congresswoman said, before adding a string of hashtags, calling for an end to family separation, for the reunification of separated families and for the abolishment of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency, a demand that was a central component of her grassroots electoral campaign.


These people have chosen self-imprisonment as a gesture of aggressiveness.   There is nothing dignified or self-respecting about burdening the United States with their children at their own peril.  No one is “holding” these invaders except their own obnoxious disobedience of law and process which is disastrously emboldened by the symbolism fetish perpetuated on Americans by our leftist politicians.
