Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D) is still front-and-center in the “concentration camp” controversy, and along with some of her Democratic colleagues in the U.S. Congress, is continuing to claim that detention centers housing illegal immigrants are in deplorable conditions.
How deplorable are the centers, or “camps,” as she refers to them?
According to Democrats, many detainees are having to sleep on the floor.
It has been reported that detainees – because of the over-population of some detention centers – have been forced to sleep on floor mattresses, or just plain rags.
The logical solution would be to furnish the detention centers with beds, right?
That is not good enough. Ocasio-Cortez is now supporting and promoting a walkout by employees of bed manufacturer Wayfair, in protest of the ongoing immigration crisis along the U.S. southern border, specifically where illegal immigrant children are housed.
“Wayfair workers couldn’t stomach they were making beds to cage children, said Ocasio-Cortez
AOC said that employees decided to walk out when the company CEO denied their request to stop making beds to send to the centers.
“This is what solidarity looks like – a reminder that everyday people have real power, as long as we’re brave enough to use it,” added Ocasio-Cortez
Wayfair workers couldn’t stomach they were making beds to cage children.
They asked the company to stop. CEO said no.
Tomorrow, they‘re walking out.

What Ocasio-Cortez is basically saying is that Americans should protest a bed manufacturing company that wants to send much-needed beds to detention facilities, where the very same immigrants she’s lobbying for are currently sleeping on a cold concrete floor.
