Socialist Democrat candidate for Congress Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in New York’s 14th District says the caravan of between 7,000 and 10,000 migrants is comprised of “refugees” who have a right to claim and seek asylum in the United States.

SUBSCRIBE Oct. 25, 2018 / 8:07 PM GMT By Jonathan Allen WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump accused Democrats of trying to strip health insurance from the vast majority of Americans who have it Thursday, as he rolled out a regulatory proposal aimed at driving down drug prices for domestic consumers. "Sadly, a majority of Democrats in the House of Representatives have cosponsored a very socialist health care plan that would destroy Medicare, terminate Medicare Advantage and outlaw the employer-sponsored health care plans of 157 million Americans," Trump said in remarks delivered at the Department of Health and Human Services headquarters here, echoing claims he has often made on the campaign trail, and in a widely-criticized op-ed earlier this month.
