House Democrats Rip Ocasio-Cortez’s Chief Of Staff On Twitter, Escalating Feud

Also testifying Friday were Escobar and Rep. Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass., who said federal treatment of migrants has "exceeded a level of degradation we should be ashamed is occurring on American soil".

The latest tweet was retweeted by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's deputy chief of staff.

Earlier this month, progressive firebrand Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., was among a group of House members who visited three Texas border stations.

"When these women tell me that they were put into a cell, and that their sink was not working, and we tested the sink ourselves and the sink was not working, and they were told to drink out of a toilet bowl - I believed them", said Ocasio-Cortez, who asked to be sworn in before testifying before the House Oversight Committee.

The Trump administration has promised to veto the House measure.

"That public "whatever" is called public sentiment", Ocasio-Cortez tweeted Saturday. That amendment was considered key to winning enough support from the most liberal Democrats for the NDAA to pass the House.

The Democratic-controlled House has voted to limit President Donald Trump's authority to make war against Iran.

"For them to call her a racist is a disgrace", he added.

Republican lawmakers blamed Democrats for blocking sufficient aid to improve conditions and posing as helping while doing little.

10 killed, 35 injured in trains collision in Pakistan's Sadiqabad
Six people died last month when a freight train collided with a passenger train in Hyderabad 165 km (100 miles) from Karachi . The engine of the Akbar Express was completely destroyed in the accident while three bogies were also damaged, police said.

Representative Ro Khanna, the Democrat who led the amendment, said the measure showed that the United States was fed up with war. "I think that a group of people are being very disrespectful to her", said the President.

Democrats accuse Trump of tolerating badly overcrowded and putrid holding facilities in a purposeful effort to discourage future immigrants. The hearing came as the number of families, children and other migrants entering the USA from Mexico has surged above 100,000 monthly since March, overwhelming federal agencies' ability to detain them in sanitary conditions and highlighting the issue as the 2020 presidential and congressional campaigns are in their early stages.

The report says some families were broken up even though the parents ended up not being prosecuted. Hundreds were held longer than previously revealed, including 25 kept over a year, and at least 30 remain apart from their parents.

The figures reflected "a deliberate, unnecessary and cruel choice by President Trump and his administration", the report said.

Later Friday, though, Pence visited an outdoor portal at the McAllen Border Station, where 384 single men were being held in cages with no cots.

It began with Chakrabarti tweeting his displeasure with House Democrats voting for the Senate's bipartisan emergency border aid package that progressives opposed for not including humanitarian protections for migrants.

Democrats and Republicans are fighting over the treatment of the arrivals, whose numbers have surpassed 100,000 monthly.

But for Democrats like Rep. Pramila Jayapal, D-Wash, a co-chair of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, Ocasio-Cortez's accusation that Pelosi works to "diminish progressive power" in the caucus struck a chord for her.
