Ocasio-Cortez slams Trump’s border security funding request

♪ ♪ >> Emily: A LOT OF A REACTION TO THE PRESIDENT’S SPEECH LAST NIGHT BUT NONE MORE WORTHY OF ITS OWN SEGMENT THAT NEW DEMOCRATIC CONGRESSWOMAN ALEXANDRIA OCASIO-CORTEZ. >> THE PRESIDENT SHOULD NOT BE ASKING FOR MORE MONEY TO AN AGENCY THAT HAS SYSTEMATICALLY VIOLATED HUMAN RIGHTS. THE PRESIDENT SHOULD BE REALLY DEFENDING WHY WE ARE FUNDING SUCH AN AGENCY AT ALL. BECAUSE RIGHT NOW WHAT WE ARE SEEING IS DEATH. RIGHT NOW WHAT WE ARE SEEING IS A VIOLATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS. >> Emily: SHE DIDN’T JUST STOP AT THAT, SLAMMING I.C.E. SHE TOOK IT TO A WHOLE ‘NOTHER LEVEL WITH THIS. >> HE’S FIGHTING AGAINST ALMOST EVERY WAY PEOPLE CAN ACTUALLY LEGALLY ENTER THIS COUNTRY, FORCING THEM TO BECOME UNDOCUMENTED. THEN HE’S TRYING TO ATTACK THEIR UNDOCUMENTED STATUS. IT’S SYSTEMATIC. IT’S WRONG. IT’S ANTI-AMERICAN. THOSE WOMEN AND CHILDREN TRYING TO COME HERE WITH NOTHING BUT THE SHIRTS ON THEIR BACK TO CREATE AN OPPORTUNITY AND PROVIDE FOR THIS NATION ARE ASKING MORE IN AN AMERICAN TRADITION IN THIS PRESIDENT IS RIGHT NOW. >> Emily: ALL RIGHT, JESSE. SHE WAS SUBJECTED TO SOME JOURNALISTIC CRITICISM OVER THIS OBVIOUSLY AND DEFENDED HERSELF AGAINST IT. HOW DO YOU RECONCILE, HOW WOULD SHE RECONCILE THAT WHICH SUCH SEEMINGLY ARGUABLY MINDLESS COMMENTS. >> Jesse: I GETTING AOC FOR TAG. — FATIGUE. SHE’S EVERYWHERE. SHE’S ALL OVER THE INTERNET. I’M KIND OF OVER IT ALREADY. THINK ABOUT WHAT SHE IS SAYING. SHE IS SAYING ILLEGAL ALIENS ARE MORE AMERICAN THAN THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES. SHE IS A REVERSE BIRTHER, THE OPPOSITE OF WHAT TRUMP SAID. NOW SHE IS SAYING THAT I.C.E. AGENTS ARE COMMITTING HUMAN RIGHTS VIOLATIONS. I.C.E. AGENTS ARE THE ACTUAL PEOPLE WHO — SHE IS SAYING IN THE MIDST OF DECADES, BEST WAGE GROWTH, GDP GROWTH. CAPITALISM ISN’T WORKING. LET’S TRY SOCIALISM? IT’S THE KIND OF STUFF YOU HEAR YOUR AVERAGE COLLEGE DEMOCRATS SAYING YOU KIND OF ROLL YOUR EYES. NOW SHE IS A MEMBER OF CONGRESS. THE TRAINING WHEELS ARE OFF. SHE IS POPPING WHEELIES THROUGH THE COUNTRY, THROWING HAND GRENADES OUT THERE. SHE IS A PROBLEM NOT FOR REPUBLICANS. SHE IS A PROBLEM FOR PELOSI. THAT’S WHAT I THINK. CHUCK OR NANCY, HOWEVER. SHE’S GOOD FOR RATINGS HERE AT FOX. >> Juan: I THINK ALL OVER THE CONSERVATIVE MEDIA UNIVERSE, THEY SEEM TO DELIGHT AND WHAT DO THEY CALL HER, AOC. I MUST TELL YOU, GUESS WHAT, THE AMERICAN PEOPLE AGREE WITH HER. >> Greg: WE ARE A SOCIALIST COUNTRY NOW? >> Juan: THE AMERICAN PEOPLE SAY THE REPUBLICANS ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THEIR SHUTDOWN AND SECONDLY WHEN IT COMES TO SEPARATING FAMILIES AND CHILDREN FROM PARENTS, AMERICANS DON’T LIKE IT. AMERICANS THINK — >> Greg: THEY WANT OPEN BORDERS. >> Jesse: THEY WANT TO ABOLISH I.C.E.? >> Juan: THESE PEOPLE CALM. FAMILIES AND WORKERS. REMEMBER WHEN REPUBLICANS SAID JACKBOOTED THUGS? IF YOU ARE AN IMMIGRANT AND YOU SEE YOUR COUSIN BEING RATED AND TAKEN AWAY. >> Jesse: I THINK REPUBLICANS HAVE THAT WHEN THE GUNS WERE SOLD TO MEXICAN — KILLED THE BORDER AGENTS. >> Emily: DANA, YOU ARE SAYING IT’S MORE OF A PROBLEM FOR SCHUMER. >> Dana: DEMOCRATS TRYING TO GET THEIR 2020 GAME GOING ON THEY HAVE — THEY ARE SUPER HOPEFUL. THEY THINK THEY CAN MAKE TRUMP A ONE TERM PRESIDENT. WE WILL SEE HOW THAT GOES. IF THEY DON’T WIN BACK THE SENATE, THEY WILL NOT BE IN A POSITION OF POWER. IT’S REALLY DIFFICULT. I THINK FOR PELOSI, WHERE THE ENERGY IS IN THE PARTY RIGHT NOW, IT HELPS IN THE HOUSE TO HAVE AOC OUT THERE AND ALL OF THESE THINGS. THEY DON’T HAVE TO DEFEND THEM THAT MUCH. IF YOU WANT TO HAVE POWER IN THE COUNTRY, YOU HAVE TO WIN BACK THE SENATE. I THINK THE MORE SHE’S OUT THERE, THE MORE DIFFICULT IT IS FOR CHUCK SCHUMER TO TRY TO MAKE ANY GAINS ON THE REPUBLICANS AND THAT THEY ARE MORE LIKELY IN 2020, REPUBLICANS MORE LIKELY TO KEEP THE SENATE OR EVEN EXPAND THE NUMBER OF SEATS THEY HAVE. >> Emily: GREG. >> Greg: YES. [LAUGHTER] >> Emily: WHAT WITH THE MESSAGING FEE FOR COMPASSIONATE, MORE MODERATE DEMOCRATS WHO DON’T AGREE THAT THE HUMAN RIGHTS VIOLATIONS AND THAT THERE IS DEATH AND SOME TYPE OF MODERATE GROUND THAT INCLUDES THE HUMAN RIGHTS VIOLATIONS BEING COMMITTED — APPREHENDED BY THOSE OF THE BORDER, ET CETERA. >> Greg: I DON’T WANT TO HELP THEM OUT. I WOULD SAY, OKAY. SHE’S THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY’S TRUMP IN THE SENSE THAT SHE HAS GALVANIZING SOCIAL MEDIA VIA EXTREME PRONOUNCEMENTS. EVERY MORNING, SHE GETS UP AND SAYS WHAT’S MY “LOCK HER UP,” OR “BUILD THE WALL.” HE ENDS UP ON SHOWS LIKE THIS. I THINK SHE’S BETRAYING HER CONSTITUENCY. ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION EFFECTS WAGES. IT AFFECTS THE JOB MARKET OF MINORITIES. THAT’S A STONE COLD FACT. IT IS, JUAN. IT IS. >> Juan: I THINK WHAT’S A STONE COLD FACT IS THAT IMMIGRATION HELPS ECONOMIC GROWTH. >> Greg: LEGAL. >> Emily: ILLEGAL, LOW WAGES AND NONCOMPLIANCE. LACK OF THE THINGS PEOPLE ON THE LEFT. >> Juan: THIS REMINDS ME OF MITT ROMNEY’S GARDENERS AND PEOPLE ON TRUMP’S PROPERTY SAYING THAT WE ARE ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS. >> Greg: I DON’T FOLLOW THAT. WHAT I AM SAYING IS THAT CHEAP LABOR HURTS MINORITIES OR PEOPLE THAT ARE ON THE LOWER RUNG OF THE LADDER. THAT’S A FACT. THE PROBLEM IS, AND LET ME FINISH BECAUSE YOU TALKED A BIT. WE HAVE TO GET OVER THE FACT. YOU’RE ACCUSED OF BEING SEXIST IF YOU CRITICIZE HER. IT’S ACTUALLY SEXIST IF YOU DON’T CRITICIZE HER. YOU HAVE TO SAY YOUR IDEAS ARE OLD. YOU ARE REFRESHING IN YOUR DELIVERY. YOU ARE YOUNG. YOU ARE EXCITING. BUT YOUR IDEAS ARE AS DEAD AS THE SOCIALISM OF THE PAST. >> Jesse: SHE’S DOING SOMETHING AND SHE’S NOT TAKING THE TRADITIONAL HEAT YOU WOULD EXPECT WHEN YOU CALL A SITTING PRESIDENT UN-AMERICAN OR YOU ADVOCATE FOR SOCIALISM OR YOU DO MEAN THE LAW ENFORCEMENT. A COUPLE YEARS AGO, I AM OLD ENOUGH TO REMEMBER DOING THOSE THINGS, YOU GET HIT PRETTY HARD. >> Greg: [LAUGHS] SPEESIXTEEN BILL de BLASIO SCHOOL OF DEMOCRATS. >> Greg: I THINK THAT HAD BEEN DONE TO OBAMA. A FEW CONGRESSMEN I THINK WE CAN REMEMBER PRESIDENT OBAMA OF NOT BEING AMERICAN AT ALL THAT STUFF. >> Jesse: AND THEY GOT HURT FOR THAT. >> Greg: THERE IS A MIRROR IMAGE TO EVERYTHING IN THESE PARTIES. THAT’S THE SAD THING. ONE SIDE DOES EXACTLY WHAT THE OTHER SIDE DOES. >> Dana: I THINK THEY SHOULD’VE HAD HAD HER DO THE RESPONSE. TO COMMUNICATE WITH HER AND
