House Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in a recent Instagram post decided to finally address the border crisis and influx of illegal immigration.
To no surprise, she made her statement racial and pulled the commonly used card of “white supremacy.”
AOC states that using the “term” surge is a “white supremacist” idea and rooted in “white supremacist philosophy.”

Representative Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) has been accused of avoiding the press’s border questions for quite some time.
This might shock some people because of her vibrant activism during the Trump Administration for the border.
Including the infamous photoshoot of Cortez sobbing in front of a parking lot that was supposed to be the children that were put in “cages.”
See the pictures below:
Cortez went so far during the Trump Administration to call the border facilities concentration camps, but the same border facilities being over filled by 1000% get crickets.
Initially, Ocasio-Cortez seemed triggered when asked during an Instagram Live “ask-me-anything” session why she was “not addressing the border crisis and the kids in cages like you used to.”
Cortez responded to the question by saying, “Are you for real?”
Completely dodging the kids in cages question, AOC proceeds to rebrand the problems along the border with different “woke” names.
She says, “It’s not a border crisis. It’s an Imperialism crisis, it’s a climate crisis, it’s a trade crisis. And also it’s a carceral crisis.”
“But people don’t want to have that conversation. They want to say, ‘But what about the surge? – Well, first of all, just — gut check. Stop. Anyone who’s using the term ‘surge’ around you, consciously, is trying to invoke a militaristic frame,” she continues.
“And that’s a problem, because this is not a surge. These are children and they are not insurgents and we are not being invaded… Which, by the way, is a white supremacist philosophy. The idea that if another is coming in the population that this is an invasion of who we are,” she insists with her “woke” logic.
Labeling the “surge” of immigrants as a “white supremacist” idea has sparked outrage online.
The people experiencing the crisis firsthand are the most outspoken against AOC’s remarks, while Cortez STILL has not visited the border.
The term surge has been used because many more immigrants are crossing the border than usual ILLEGALLY, which is a tremendous problem for border patrol.
Do you think border security is rooted in “white supremacy”?
