Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, DN.Y., received a wave of criticism on Tuesday after supporting a workers strike in a company providing bedding for migrants in US detention centers.
Both she and Senator Bernie Sanders, I-Vt, offered their support to Wayfair employees on Tuesday when the CEO refused to stop production. "This is solidarity – a reminder that everyday people have real power, as long as we are brave enough to use them," she tweeted.
While Ocasio-Cortez saw solidarity with migrants, others countermanded the strike by stopping activities in a company that helped to improve the boundary conditions they so often veiled. "Apart from a compromise with the Trump government, AOC would see children being hurt so that Trump gets a black eye and the crisis is getting worse," he said.

both Ocasio-Cortez and Rep. Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass. for the support of the Wayfair strike. "In order for migrants to feel at home while Democrats in Congress are reluctant to provide humanitarian assistance, the Trump administrator has bought bedroom furniture at @Wayfair," the Trump War Room account tweeted. "The fact that concentration camps are now an institutionalized practice in the land of the free is extremely disturbing," she said.
Pressley and Ocasio-Cortez together called on House Democrats to reject additional financing for both immigration and customs enforcement (ICE) and Customs and Border Protection (CBP). It is unclear whether they still oppose this funding, as their opposition to Trump's now-reversed decision to order mass deportations responded.

This additional finance bill has been funded "We do not just have to think about caring for the people in our custody," the former CBP chief said John Sanders. "I have a 60,000-strong workforce that is overwhelmed and sick, and the people at CBP need help with it."
