Human Traffickers Raked in Billions in 2017

The Left’s open borders agenda has been busted with the latest nonpartisan report from the Rand Corporation detailing how illegal immigrants being smuggled from Central America to the U.S. shelled out about $2.3 billion to traffickers in 2017. RAND researchers suggest that the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) ratchet up expanding its financial investigations of payments, including those being sent out from within the United States.

Ocasio-Cortez has been on a two-week campaign against a bill that would require major reforms to take place within the Department of Veterans Affairs healthcare system, calling the VA’s care “high quality,” and claiming that even semi-privatization of the system would plunge it into chaos because of the “for-profit healthcare industry,” according to The Washington Examiner.

In a series of remarks, Ocasio-Cortez insisted that “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it,” and that complaints about the VA mishandling patients and misappropriating funds, and of long waits for substandard care, are all “myths.”
