Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez demands to be sworn in for a hearing on migrant children and border security. Rep. Elijah Cummings pushes back on this because being sworn in for that type of hearing is not required. This is just another way that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is showing her inexperience and causing people to roll their eyes at her.The Washington Examiner stated, "Prior to testifying to the House Oversight and Reform Committee on the conditions of the border detention facilities, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez made an unusual request: she wanted to be sworn in. Chairman Elijah Cummings obliged the New York Democrat's request, but noted, "We usually don't require a swearing in." In a tweet explaining why she asked to be sworn in, Ocasio-Cortez said it was because Republicans had been "stating that I am lying about the translated accounts of migrants at the border." It is against the law to lie to Congress, even if someone is not sworn in. “Ms. Ocasio-Cortez is more interested in scoring political points than actually solving the crisis at the southern border," a Republican source close to the committee told the Washington Examiner."
