Freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), appearing on MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow Show following President Trump’s address to the nation on the crisis at the U.S. Southern border, attacked Americans opposed to illegal immigration and glossed over the recent murder of a legal immigrant police officer Cpl. Ronil Singh of the Newman, California police by an illegal alien named Paulo Virgen Mendoza. Singh immigrated from Fiji and became a U.S. citizen so he could fulfill his dream of being a police officer in the United States.
The Gateway Pundit reports:
Mendoza was helped in his attempted escape back to Mexico by a web of seven family and friends, six of whom are admitted illegal aliens.
Ocasio-Cortez’s comment dismissing the murder of Cpl. Singh came in the midst of an impassioned uninterrupted two-minute-plus rant responding to Trump’s speech in which he spoke about the murder of Singh the day after Christmas during a traffic stop by the criminal illegal alien Mendoza.
During his Oval Office speech, President Donald Trump spoke about Cpl. Ronil Singh, a Newman police officer who was killed during a traffic stop Dec. 26. The man charged with killing Singh was in the country illegally, but it’s unknown exactly when he entered the U.S. pic.twitter.com/5vAKj5YPeC

Trump’s somber, presidential demeanor in his Oval Office address was in stark contrast to Ocasio-Cortez on MSNBC.
Ocasio-Cortez wouldn’t mention it was a police officer, nor would she even say he was murdered, let alone by an illegal alien. She dismissively said of Singh’s murder: “He (Trump) talked about what happened the day after Christmas.”
Ocasio-Cortez then talked at length about the tragic death of a migrant child due to illness while in ICE custody on Christmas Eve (not Christmas Day as she said) and called for abolishing ICE.
AOC just went TF off on Maddow.
