The DailyWire’s Andrew Kalavan highlights that the Democrats have become the big government party bankrolled by big business, and it’s news coming from none other than socialist U.S. Representative-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. More specifically, AOC recently decried the move of Amazon headquarters to New York City, a move highly subsidized at the expense of taxpayers to the tune of $48,000 per Amazon employee. Though she misses the bigger point that this is a mess caused by wealth redistribution and big government, Klavan explained: “Here’s the thing where Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is actually right. She says she was ‘outraged’ that they paid out all this money to Amazon to get them to move to New York. Democrats are guilty of precisely the thing with which they paint Republicans.” And it’s another Democrat who is pointing out the obvious. Weird world.
Here’s more from Washington Examiner…
The Arizona border will have 32 miles of existing wall replaced starting next April.
The $324 million project has been given the green light by federal immigration officials, U.S. Customs and Border Protection announced Thursday.
The project will switch out an old barrier that runs from the Border Patrol’s Tucson Sector west into the Yuma Sector, which is just miles from Arizona’s border with California. The replacement wall is meant to keep pedestrians and vehicles from entering the U.S. Older barriers were largely to prevent cars from driving over, but were only a few feet tall and did little to keep people from trespassing from Mexico.
The undertaking, which will be paid for by congressional funding for CBP from 2018 legislation, is part of President Trump’s January 2017 executive order to secure the country by improving barriers in vulnerable and high-traffic areas.
