Politics: Immigration: Explaining In Sixty Seconds What Most Leftists Can’t Comprehend (But AOC Got It): Twitter Video

Transcript (involving yet another uninformed (Millennial) law-maker who doesn’t know the law but yaps about it anyway)…

Homan noted that, while he did not write the policy, he had made “numerous recommendations” to Homeland Security, including implementing a “zero tolerance” policy for illegal border crossers.

“Which includes family separation,” Ocasio-Cortez interrupted.

“The same as it is with every U.S. citizen,” Homan shot back. “Parent [who] gets arrested with a child.”

After a brief pause, a seemingly rattled Ocasio-Cortez said, “Zero tolerance was interpreted as the policy that separated the children from their parents.”

“If I get arrested for DUI and I have a young child in the car I’m gonna be separated,” Homan said. “When I was a police officer in New York and I arrested a father for domestic violence, I separated that father from his family.”

“Mr. Homan, with all due respect, legal asylees are not charged with any crime,” said the congresswoman.

But Homan was ready, with a specific U.S. code no less: “When you’re in this country illegally, it’s violation 8, United States Code 1325.”

“Seeking asylum is legal,” she insisted.

“If you want to seek asylum, you go through a port of entry,” he responded. “Do it the legal way. The Attorney General of the United States has made that clear.”

“Okay,” said Ocasio-Cortez.
