AOC: Climate Change Is a 'Major Factor' Driving the Migrant Crisis

Was Pelosi Mocking Ocasio-Cortez?

Former Democratic Congressman Joe Crowley reportedly could have shoveled political dirt on current New York Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, but made a decision to say nothing about it.

Earlier Tuesday, Ocasio-Cortez discussed the role of global warming and national security at a House Oversight Committee hearing with John Kerry, the former Secretary of State, and Chuck Hagel, the former Secretary of Defense.

Representative James Comer asked Kerry about paying for the Green New Deal, a progressive plan aimed at lowering emissions, creating clean energy jobs, and moving to renewable energy and away from fossil fuels.

The two politicians held "wide-reaching" telephone talks in February on topics including climate change and migration, she previously said.

"I represent kids that go to jail for jumping a turnstile because they can't afford a MetroCard", Ocasio-Cortez told Morgan CEO Jamie Dimon.




"We all have some difference of one piece of legislation or another but in proposing what she has proposed, along with Sen".

Ocasio-Cortez tweeted a clip of the interaction with a quote from Kerry and said she was "Honored and humbled", and thanked the former presidential candidate and Massachusettes senator.

"I don't know if you're allowed to agree with that, Secretary Kerry or Secretary Hagel..."

Ocasio-Cortez also called out Republican critics of the Green New Deal, saying she is "incredibly flattered that the ranking member and many members across the aisle seem to be so enamored with a non-binding resolution presented by a freshman congresswoman sworn in 3 months ago", but that "despite that fixation, it doesn't seem that they've actually read the contents of" the resolution. "Check out our new video on why the climate movement must fight for migrant justice to win the world we want".

However, it has been criticized by many, including by some Democrats, for being too ambitious and too expensive.
