Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) didn't take too kindly to questions about why she has been silent about "kids in cages" under the Biden administration, while, under Trump, she made it her battle cry against Republicans.

An Instagram Live video shows AOC responding to the question that asked:

"Why are you not addressing the border crisis and the kids in cages like you used to?"

The progressive congresswoman responded by getting angry about the term "surge," before ranting about the climate, and white supremacy.

"Are you for real?" Ocasio-Cortez exclaimed in response to the question.

"So, let's talk about this because much of our national conversation, which is not a conversation about immigration, is driven by people who could not care less about immigrants," AOC continued.

"So often, people want to say, 'Why aren't you talking about the border crisis?' or 'Why aren't you talking about it in this way?'"

"Well, we're talking about it; they just don't like how we're talking about it."

She then claimed the term "surge" is a "white supremacist" attempt to "invoke a militaristic frame."

"Just — gut check. Stop."

"Anyone who's using the word 'surge' around you, consciously, is trying to invoke a militaristic frame.

"And that's a problem. Because this is not a surge, these are children, and they are not insurgents."

"And we are not being invaded, which, by the way, is a white supremacist idea, philosophy, the idea that if an 'other' is coming in the population, that this is an invasion of who we are," she asserted.

Earlier this week, Donald Trump's daughter-in-law Lara Trump slammed AOC for being hypocritical about the surge of unaccompanied minors at the border.

"Where is AOC down there doing a photo op crying in front of a wall?"

"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."
