Sanders and Ocasio-Cortez Team Up on Climate Change Resolution

Sanders and Ocasio-Cortez Team Up on Climate Change Resolution

Ocasio-Cortez also criticized the Democrats who made a decision to vote along with Republicans on the spending plan to address issues at the U.S. -Mexico border.

Omar, Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass., and Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich was against the measure, with Omar, saying that the bill was only throwing more money at the Trump administration that she accused of committing human rights abuses.

The comments were the latest in a string of public digs between Pelosi and the "squad", a collective of progressive lawmakers, consisting of Ocasio-Cortez as well as Reps.

Chakrabarti wasn't the only one to find fault in Pelosi's quotes, with Ocasio-Cortez and Tlaib tweeting about the article, too.

"And I'll tell you right now, we're not going to stand by and sit idly by and allow brown and dark-skinned children to be ripped away from their parents to be dehumanized", she added, obviously suggesting that Pelosi doesn't care about the children as much as she should, because of their race or ethnicity.

"All these people have their public whatever and their Twitter world", Pelosi told Dowd. "But they didn't have any following".

Ocasio-Cortez fired back on Twitter, explaining that "whatever" is "public sentiment". 'And wielding the power to shift it is how we actually achieve meaningful change in this country'.

Trump's approval rating hits record high
Asked how much credit Trump deserves for the state of the economy, 47% of respondents say a "great deal" or a "good amount". In a head-to-head matchup with the Democratic presidential candidates, Joe Biden leads Trump by 14 percentage points, Sen.

Pelosi also dismissed the Green New Deal, championed by Ocasio-Cortez, in a February interview with Politico. "I want to talk to the people that are concerned enough with humanity to say that "Never Again" means something".

A vote for Mitch McConnell's border bill is a vote to keep kids in cages and terrorize immigrant communities. "Hell no", the 29-year-old congresswoman tweeted about legislation which will provide $4.6 billion in funding for operations at the southern border but lacked elements many House Democrats had hoped to include. Despite that, Republicans are tripling down on fossil fuels w/no plan to transition off them, or make the critical infra investments we need to prep for the climate crisis.

Despite the progressive's efforts, the House adopted the Senate bill on a 302-102 vote.

House Democratic leadership has indicated that there will "soon" be a full House vote to hold Attorney General William Barr and Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross in criminal contempt over their failure to comply with subpoenas regarding the citizenship question on the census form, a source told Fox News.
