This isn't the first time that Ocasio-Cortez has criticized ICE.

Nearly every major new economic initiative proposed by Democrats - the Green New Deal, Medicare for all, debt-free college - has a common feature: Unlike most current social programs, it would benefit younger Americans at the expense of older Americans.

Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is being criticized by conservatives after she outlined the goals of a "Green New Deal" to combat climate change.

The resolution, which calls for World War II-style mobilization efforts to cut down on the nation's carbon emissions, also originally sought to tackle cow flatulence, which happens to be a big source of methane emissions.

During Nielsen's heated exchange with Representative Luis Gutierrez (D., Texas), which Ocasio-Cortez referenced, the secretary distinguished between a comprehensive family-separation policy that would apply to all migrants and the zero-tolerance enforcement policy, which applied only to migrants who were being prosecuted for crossing the border illegally.

"Now that this resolution is released, we're taking the fight to districts across the country to build the political and public support for the Green New Deal, and get thousands of organizations signed on to back the resolution", said Stephen O'Hanlon, spokesman for the Sunrise Movement, which has pushed for the Green New Deal and staged protests at the Capitol, including a sit-in at Pelosi's office.

It warns freezing rain Thursday and high winds early Friday could cause more problems, like downed wires or other safety hazards. Environment Canada has issued a freezing rain warning for Waterloo region and Wellington county for all day Wednesday .

Ocasio-Cortez, who wept as she lamented the impact of restrictionist immigration policy, stressed the importance of adherence to law to justify her opposition to migrant-detention facilities.

The freshman congresswoman made the remarks alongside fellow Democratic Reps. Use of wind and solar power would be dramatically increased under the plan.

The self-described Democratic socialist spoke on Thursday alongside several liberal groups, including MoveOn and United We Dream, a pro-immigration group that calls for ICE to be abolished. Linking climate and social issues highlights how environmental change and measures to counter it are likely to hit hardest the people who can least absorb the damage. "And so that's really what we're trying to accomplish with the Green New Deal".

Most of the Democratic presidential candidates, including Senators Kirsten Gillibrand of New York; Kamala Harris of California; Elizabeth Warren of MA; and Cory Booker of New Jersey have also broadly endorsed the idea behind the Green New Deal.

"Even the solutions that we have considered big and bold are nowhere near the scale of the actual problem that climate change presents to us", Ocasio-Cortez told NPR's Steve Inskeep during an interview on Thursday morning. Ed Markey held to unveil their resolution calling for a "Green New Deal".
