Ocasio-Cortez’s attack on Abbott follows the governor on Thursday tweeting: “The Biden-Harris administration continues ignoring and denying the historic crisis at our southern border.”
Abbott also said Texas will continue sending migrants to sanctuary cities like Washington, D.C., until President Biden and “Border Czar Harris” step up and do their jobs to secure the border.
Ocasio-Cortez whose brand includes engaging in Twitter battles, tweeted in response: “You do seem to be struggling at your job … . Maybe you should consider if this is the right work for you.”
Since April, Abbott has sent thousands of migrants to Democratic-run cities including New York, Chicago, and Washington, D.C. The latest buses to D.C. arrived the day after Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis sent two planes of migrants to Martha’s Vineyard in Massachusetts.
