Double Standard?

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-NY, offered mild criticism of the Biden administration’s decision to open an immigrant detention center for children. “This is not okay, never has been okay, never will be okay — no matter the administration or party,” Cortez said. “It’s only two [months] into this admin and our fraught, unjust immigration system will not transform in that time.” During the Trump administration, Cortez repeatedly called the facilities “concentration camps.” In June 2019, Cortez covered her head with her hands and protested outside the fence of a migrant detention facility in what many critics called a publicity stunt.
