AOC: Climate Change Is a 'Major Factor' Driving the Migrant Crisis

Was Pelosi Mocking Ocasio-Cortez?

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez blamed the migrant crisis on climate change Tuesday night, just hours after suggesting that the USA would "have blood on our hands" if climate legislation - like her Green New Deal - doesn't get passed.

"The far-right loves to drum up fear & resistance to immigrants", Ocasio-Cortez tweeted on Tuesday.

He also scrutinized Republican inaction on addressing climate change.

"So I think what we have laid out here is a very clear moral problem and in terms of leadership, if we fail to act or even if we delay in acting, we will have blood on our hands?" asked Ocasio-Cortez. "Let me begin by saying, congressman, there are a lot of different proposals about how to proceed, I don't know that any of them are coming from your party or your side of the aisle".

"We all have some difference of one piece of legislation or another but in proposing what she has proposed, along with Sen. This is not due to climate change".

Redacted Mueller report to be released within a week
The attorney general also addressed media reports that alleged members of the Special Counsel were not happy with his letter. Mr Giuliani not only insisted that there was "nothing" in the report but also that it should be brought before Congress.

In response to a question about Ocasio-Cortez urging her almost 4 million followers to "pause" donations to the DCCC if it "blacklists" radical Democratic primary challengers, DCCC Chair Rep. Cheri Bustos took a moment to put Ocasio-Cortez in her place, saying her strategy "worked so well that we had record fundraising numbers in the first quarter".

Mr Corbyn and Ms Ocasio-Cortez held "wide-reaching" telephone talks in February on topics including climate change and migration, the congresswoman said at the time. Kerry was serving as a witness at the hearing as was former senator and Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel. When the two announced the deal Ocasio-Cortez called it a "major watershed moment".

The video AOC shared from The Leap said that numerous reasons people are forced to leave their homes - including wildfires and hurricanes - are caused by climate change.

However, it has been criticized by many, including by some Democrats, for being too ambitious and too expensive.
