FNC's Campos-Duffy: Does Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Work For The Terrorists Or The American People?

|

FOX News contributor and conservative personality Rachel Campos-Duffy told FNC's Martha MacCallum that Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), a colleague of her husband Rep. Sean Duffy (R-WI), you have to wonder if she is "working" for terrorists or the American people.

"AOC likes big federal agencies, the bigger the better," Campos-Duffy said Wednesday. "Her concern is with the mission of DHS. She doesn't just want to eliminate DHS, she wants to abolish ICE. She wants to get rid of Border Patrol. She agrees with Julian Castro in decriminalizing illegal border entry."





"We're looking at someone who basically wants to give you the wish list for terrorists, the wish list for criminal cartels, and sex traffickers. And you have to wonder, is she working for them or is she working for the American people?" Campos-Duffy asked.

MARTHA MACCALLUM, FOX NEWS: Let's just put up that quote again. And then, I want to hear Rachel's response.

RACHEL CAMPOS-DUFFY, CONTRIBUTOR: Sure.

MACCALLUM: We're going to listen to it again, just to be clear.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Would you get rid of Homeland Security too?

REP. ALEXANDRIA OCASIO-CORTEZ, D-N.Y.: I think so. I think we need to undo a lot of the egregious -- a lot of the egregious mistakes of the Bush administration did. It is a very qualified and supported position, at least in terms of evidence and in terms of being able to make the argument that we never should have created DHS in the early 2000s.

MACCALLUM: Never should have created DHS in the early 2000s, just right in the wake of 9/11.

RACHEL CAMPOS-DUFFY, CONTRIBUTOR: I think that Juan, no offense, but I think you're being disingenuous about her concerns about DHS. She's hardly concerned about, you know, many conservatives were worried that -- you know, we're creating this big federal agency when Bush create it.

WILLIAMS: That's right.

CAMPOS-DUFFY: That is not the concerns that AOC has. AOC likes big federal agencies, the bigger the better. Her concern is with the mission of DHS. She doesn't just want to eliminate DHS, she wants to abolish ICE. She wants to get rid of Border Patrol. She agrees with Julian Castro in decriminalizing illegal border entry.

So, we're looking at someone who's basically wants to give you the wish list for terrorists, the wish list for criminal cartels, and sex traffickers. And you have to wonder, is she working for them or is she working for the American people?

The American people, especially, those constituents that she represents in New York City want the border secure where we already know, Juan, that not -- it's not just desperate economic migrants from Latin America, we have seen people from terrorist countries come across, from hostile countries come across the border, from Africa, from the Middle East. This is an -- this is not a -- this is -- this is this national security issue.
