Ocasio-Cortez Calls To Be Sworn In At Immigration Hearing

Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez asked to be sworn in at an immigration hearing Friday, causing the committee chairman to do a double take.

“I would like to be sworn in,” Ocasio-Cortez said, after Democratic Rep. Elijah Cummings, chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Reform, recognized her to speak. (RELATED: Ocasio-Cortez Thinks Committee Assignments She Requested Are A Party Plot Against Her)

“I’m sorry?” he replied.

“I would like to be sworn in,” she repeated.

“Oh, alright. We usually don’t require a swearing in, uh, but you want to be sworn in?” he said.
