Actor Michael Rapaport called out Rep. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez (D-NY) for ignoring New York City’s surge in shootings on her watch, instead choosing to focus on what she called the “family separation” that occurs after illegal aliens are apprehended at the U.S.-Mexico border.
“It’s astounding that after a massive family separation operation, mass sexual assault of detainees, trapping immigrants in COVID-infected detention centers, and now reports of mass hysterectomies (which the US has done before), abolishing ICE is controversial,” Ocasio Cortez wrote on Twitter. “Where’s the line?”
Although Rapaport did not disagree with her concerns, the Atypical star argued that Ocasio Cortez was being selective in the issues she was choosing to raise on behalf of her constituents.
“Definitely & the 177% Increase in Shootings in NYC is also astounding and heartbreaking but you never bring that stuff up for some reason & you Rep NYC,” Rapaport said to Ocasio Cortez.
