Rep. Crenshaw: AOC Wants a Fight, Not Solutions

By    |   Monday, 22 July 2019 12:36 PM

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's continued protests about the border crisis are because she wants to add "fuel to the fire" and does not want to find real solutions for the issue, Rep. Dan Crenshaw said Monday.

"Notice that they never come up with a solution," the Texas Republican told Fox News' "Fox & Friends."

"They talk about over-crowded facilities. They never have a solution. They don't have a solution for our immigration system."

The United States has an immigration policy that says migrants can't come into the country illegally, added Crenshaw, and "we need to enforce it."

Saturday, Ocasio-Cortez called for a commission like the one that was formed to investigate the Sept. 11, 2001 terror attacks to be put in place to probe the border crisis. Crenshaw said Democrats, however, would rather find ways they can "call the president evil" than find solutions to the crisis.

"I'm worried that the Democrats like this crisis too much," Crenshaw said. "I'm worried, as I've seen them fight against every single, even the smallest measures to help fix our immigration problem, they fight against. They don't want walls. They don't want a fix to the asylum loopholes. They're talking about decriminalizing illegal border crossings."

Also on Monday, Crenshaw criticized a push by Sen. Bernie Sanders and other Democrats for a $15 minimum wage, calling the demands "ill-conceived" and "bad economic policy" that would hurt, not help workers.
