AOC calls for end to federal funding for military recruitment in schools

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) has introduced a pair of amendments to a defense appropriations bill that would bar federal funding for the military to recruit in middle and high schools. The New York Democrat explained to The NYT that the amendments are intended to curb a trend of military recruiters targeting low-income students.
