Fox News contributor Lara Trump, the daughter-in-law of former President Donald Trump, just called out Democrats like Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) for their hypocrisy regarding the border crisis that many say was created by Joe Biden.
Lara Trump Sounds Off
“We had the most secure border under my father-in-law, under President Donald Trump that we have had in decades, and I think the best thing possible is to discourage people from making that really dangerous, awful journey north through our southern border,” Trump said.
“The problem is that the Biden administration has said, ‘Well, if they come, we’ll take you in,’ So guess what’s going to continue to happen,” she added. “You’re going to continue to have all of these children, you know, flooding our southern border.”
“It is so sad. It is so hard to watch, but we have to get this under control,” Trump continued. “This is not fair to these kids. It’s not fair to Americans who are footing the bill now. $86 million to pay for hotel rooms for illegal immigrants.”
“People that are breaking our law, coming to America, we are paying $86 million for hotel rooms,” she said. “It is totally unacceptable, but you know what? We don’t expect to see that change because this seems almost like it’s part of the Biden plan, sadly.”
Trump Doubles Down
Not stopping there, Trump went on to call out the “total hypocrisy” that is happening here.
“It’s total hypocrisy. You bring up a great point,” she continued. “The way they covered this under the Trump administration versus the Biden administration is total hypocrisy.”

“Where is the outrage from the folks on the left? Where is AOC down there doing a photo op crying in front of a wall?” Trump said. “Because I have news for her, it’s much worse right now than it ever was under the Trump administration, yet it has been crickets from those folks. I think it tells a very scary story.”
‘They know that they have millions of illegal immigrants coming to America,” she added. “They are trying to change our voting laws. They are hoping one day that all of these folks can go in and vote with no ID because that’s one of the things in HR-1 that they are proposing.”
“These are their new voters, and it is a terrifying prospect,” Trump concluded. “If we let everybody flee flow over our southern border guys, we lose our country. It is a very, very scary thing going on.”
