Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, (D) New York., arrived on Capitol Hill for freshman orientation Tuesday, not to speak with the office of House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, (D) California, but rather to join climate change protesters.
“You vote for a child…you get a child!,” seems to be the consensus from many who have turned to Facebook in order to express their frustration with Ocasio-Cortez.
Ocasio-Cortez has vowed that after Democrats take control of the House, she will reinstate a special committee on climate change.
In a November 8, video, Ocasio-Cortez addressed a crowd about climate change.
There were 51 protesters arrested Tuesday.
Pelosi told the media that she welcomed the activists.
