Controversial Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez trashed the American justice system Tuesday night; saying law enforcement routinely “criminalize poverty” and “target race.”

“Our country has a ‘justice’ system that criminalizes poverty + disproportionately targets race, yet routinely pardons large-scale crimes of wealth and privilege,” posted Ocasio-Cortez on social media. “Moments like these tell us it’s less a justice system, and more a class enforcement system.”

The left-wing legislator’s comments come hours after she called for a boycott against the New York Post; blasting her hometown paper for their response to Rep. Ilhan Omar’s flippant 9/11 remarks.
