U.S. Democratic lawmakers declare climate emergency

U.S. Democratic lawmakers declare climate emergency

Ocasio-Cortez fired back at Pelosi, saying Saturday on Twitter, "I find it odd when members act as though social media isn't important", she tweeted.

Pelosi was referring to Omar, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., and Rep. Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass.

"That public "whatever" is named public sentiment", she tweeted.

Meanwhile, one refrain we've heard is that people are overcrowded in CBP concentration camps because the shelters (which are humane places where families can stay together) are full.

Calling the comparison an "outrage", the vice president asserted that "the Nazis took lives, American law enforcement save lives every day".


Ocasio-Cortez's Green New Deal, a framework for a "10-year national mobilization" to dramatically slash US carbon emissions, already has earned the backing of most leading Democratic presidential candidates. He also accused the Democratic Party of abandoning Israel, saying the party "has been co-opted by people who promote rank, anti-Semitic rhetoric". "This slander of law enforcement was an insult to the six million killed in the Holocaust".

"It's all cases, if you look, people who came from unbelievable poverty, they had no water, they had no anything where they came from, those are people that are very happy with what's going on, because relatively speaking, they're in much better shape right now", he said. "And it should be condemned by every American of every political party everywhere".

"All these people have their public whatever and their Twitter world", Pelosi said in the interview.

How did Ocasio-Cortez respond?

She then defended the exhaust of social media by herself and her fellow learners in Congress, over the extra old - and most frequently costlier and time-ingesting - programs preferred by longer-serving lawmakers.


The new source of friction was the clash over Pelosi's decision to back the Senate border funding bill - instead of the House version - even though it lacked guarantees for humanitarian aid for detained immigrants, particularly children.

Neither Pelosi or Ocasio-Cortez seems likely to back down.

The Green New Deal calls for the U.S.to shift away from fossil fuels such as oil and coal and replace them with renewable sources such as wind and solar power.

Pelosi's letter came after a Sunday announcement of the coming month's floor schedule from House Majority Leader Steny H. Hoyer (D-Md.), which did not include any specific immigration legislation.

"We have to have a solution, not just a Twitter fight", Pelosi told the Times.


Meanwhile, some Republicans and other critics have called Ocasio-Cortez hypocritical for opposing the border bill, which her critics say was created to address numerous problems that she and other far-left Democrats have been complaining about in recent weeks.
