Ocasio-Cortez, Tlaib Added to Oversight Committee Before Cohen Hearing

One woman also said she fully supports Ocasio-Cortez's efforts to abolish ICE.

While the New Yorker campaigned on eliminating ICE, she hasn't prioritized the proposal since her election to Congress.

The bill ultimately passed 229 to 184, with only six Republicans voting in favor.

Ocasio-Cortez's middle-of-the-road position has sparked ire from the national Democratic Socialists of America, who have called on her to stand against "American imperialism" and the "coup" in Venezuela. "We're hearing back a lot from our local community and they're uncomfortable with any vote on funding for ICE". The shutdown, which is the longest on record, has dragged on for 34 days as of Thursday, leaving around 800,000 federal workers furloughed or working without pay.

Rising Democrat star Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has become the first congressperson to appear on Twitch after joining a stream held in support of trans rights.

Despite support for the bill, Trump rejected it because it did not meet his demand for around $5.7 billion in funding for the construction of his long-promised border wall between the USA and Mexico.

"And so I know in my heart that all of the New Yorkers that are coming down here and downtown are coming in that spirit and not in the other spirit" (of antisemitism), she said.

But the White House has frequently sought to cast the 29-year-old Cortez as a distraction.

Our country's celebrated young social warrior is never going to be elected president of the United States - not even if she lives to be Hillary Clinton's age and gets lots of free help from Stephen Colbert, the Russians or the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Ocasio-Cortez's second "no" vote was on a larger appropriations package that funded agencies through the end of the fiscal year, but not the DHS.

Cummings said while Cohen will have a chance to publicly air his side of the story, the committee is going to "make sure that we do absolutely nothing to going to interfere with the Mueller investigation". "We have to give it all we got".

Billionaires, CEOs, and other people who have devoted their lives to money are gathered in Davos, Switzerland, and they all seem to have one thing on their mind right now: Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
