Ocasio-Cortez claims climate change is driving migrant crisis. You can’t make this stuff up …

In a stunning first, on Tuesday socialist congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez managed to exasperate both liberals AND conservatives with her bizarre fact-free tweeting.

First she annoyed conservatives by accusing them of boasting “fear & resistance to immigrants,” and then she irritated both conservatives and liberals by blaming the migrant crisis on climate change.

It’s assumed she meant the migrant/border crisis affecting the U.S.

“The far-right loves to drum up fear & resistance to immigrants. But have you ever noticed they never talk about what‘s causing people to flee their homes in the first place? Perhaps that’s bc they’d be forced to confront 1 major factor fueling global migration: Climate change,” she wrote.


Conservatives took issue with the young congresswoman’s tweet because, one, they have no issue with immigrants who earned entry into the United States the proper way. Immigrants such as an Iraqi man known only as “Johnny Walker.” For six years the Iraqi native worked as an interpreter with the U.S. Navy SEALs. For his service, he was awarded citizenship earlier this year by the Trump administration. FYI, “Walker” supports President Donald Trump’s tough but fair immigration policies.

And two, conservatives believe the migrant crisis is being driven by both the corrupt policies of Central America’s socialist dictators and the freebies being offered by Democrat legislators:

But as noted earlier, AOC’s tweet also drew backlash from her fellow leftists. Why? Because they believe that the United States’ longtime free-market-oriented foreign intervention in Central America is what’s responsible for turning most of the region’s nations into veritable hellholes.

While this theory may sound bizarre, it’s been touted by the mainstream left.


“The migration crisis stems … from American economic development policies designed primarily to promote goals — including anti-communism, unregulated foreign markets and, later, drug control — that have exacerbated the poverty, despair and violence such policies were supposed to alleviate,” a contributor with The Washington Post opined in a column last year.

It appears this theory is shared by a wide number of liberals:

Is there any merit to this theory? Perhaps.

According to Al Jazeera, back in 2009 then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton “threw her support behind the 2009 Honduran coup that ousted democratically elected Manuel Zelaya.”

Honduras has been a hellhole ever since.


In 2006 then-Democrat presidential nominee Clinton congratulated herself on a job allegedly well done: “We managed a very difficult situation without bloodshed,” she reportedly said.

Yet according to data, murder in Honduras skyrocketed by almost 50 percent after the coup …

Regardless, according to Fox News the primary factors spurring the migrant crisis “violent crime and extreme poverty,” both of which have been exacerbated by Central America’s socialist policies, some of which admittedly exist because of intervention by the likes of Clinton … and Obama.
