Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has a big problem on her hands.
She thought she was about to pick the one fight with Donald Trump that would finish him.
But instead, Ocasio-Cortez was sent reeling after this picture revealed her worst secret.
Now that the Russian collusion hoax has proven to be a bust, Democrats are refocusing their efforts on policy to destroy Donald Trump.
So they circled back to immigration.
There is a growing crisis on the Southern border.
Kevin McAleenan, the commissioner of U.S. Customs and Border Protection, said the agency detained 4,100 illegal aliens in just one day this month.
It’s the largest number of illegal aliens to be arrested in one day in over ten years.
In addition, border arrests are expected to skyrocket to over 100,000 this month.
Because Democrats refuse to change the law, Customs and Border Patrol detention facilities are overwhelmed.
They cannot house the surge of illegal aliens pouring over the Southern border.
Instead of working with the Trump administration to allow Customs and Border Patrol to process deportations quicker and give the agency the resources and legal authority to house illegal aliens, Democrats are showing their true colors.
And leading this charge is Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
Cortez rose to fame last summer by single-handedly pushing the Democrats to adopt abolishing ICE as their main immigration policy.
The New York Democrat pounced on the issue of illegal alien overflow to push her radical agenda.
She retweeted a picture of illegal aliens being kept in a parking lot because Customs and Border Patrol ran out of beds.

Ocasio-Cortez tweeted, “Look at this picture. When you’re looking at this photo, you’re looking at a mirror. This is America. This is Texas. This is our the course of action, the one we chose. I cannot and will not accept it.”
But she gave the game away with the series of hashtags she added to her tweet.
“#EndFamilySeparation& #AbolishICE & #ReuniteFamilies & Stop #BackersOfHate,” Ocasio-Cortez wrote.
She – as well as other Democrats – don’t see this “humanitarian tragedy” as a call for Congress to do its job and secure the border.
Instead, Ocasio-Cortez looks at this crisis as an opportunity to push for open borders and amnesty.
Congress could easily pass changes to immigration laws and put a stop to this situation.
Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen wrote to Congress and asked them to grant the administration the means to detain families while their asylum claims are processed, deport illegal alien children faster, and approve additional resources to house illegal aliens.
The Trump administration is reacting to this crisis wearing handcuffs placed on them by Congress.
The government estimates 1.5 million illegal aliens will be added to the population this year.
Many Americans believe this is an invasion on America.
But Ocasio-Cortez’s tweet exposed the fact that Democrats see it as an opportunity to push for open borders, amnesty, and eventually millions of new Democrat voters.
