Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, against Joe Biden for reopening a center for immigrant minors

Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, voice of the most progressive wing of the Democratic Party, has harshly criticized the opening of a center for immigrant minors, the first activated during the Joe Biden Administration, who criticized then-President Donald Trump during his campaign for the construction of facilities for these purposes.

“This is not right, it was never right, it will never be right – no matter the administration or the party,” Ocasio-Cortez wrote on her Twitter account of hers, linking an information from The Washington Post.

The new center operates in the town of Carrizon Springs, Texas and has a capacity to house 700 minors between the ages of 13 and 17.

“This Administration has only been in place for two months and our unjust and dangerous immigration system has not been transformed in that time,” the congresswoman, of Puerto Rican origin, has written, emphasizing that the Department of Homeland Security should not exist and the Immigration Service and Customs Control “go away”.

For AOC, as it is also known, the US immigration system stands on a “prison framework” and calls for solutions.

The White House spokeswoman, Jen Psaki, has come out in defense of these facilities that are already in operation and has tried to downplay the matter by ensuring that their operation will be only temporary.

“It is a temporary reopening during the Covid-19, our intention is to close it, but we want to be sure that we can follow the covid protocols,” Psaki assured.
