The ridiculous comments by New York congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D) can be amusing, but they should be challenged and her stupidity should be exposed. On Thursday, Feb. 7, 2019, Ocasio-Cortez vowed to defund U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE), and said all Latino people must be exempt from immigration laws because they are “native” to U.S. lands as they are descendants of native people.
As a member of Congress, Ocasio-Cortez is irresponsible, un-American, and ignorant to make such comments about ICE and Latinos. She raised her hand to swear (or affirm) that, “I will support and defend the Constitution,” which includes immigration laws and the role of ICE. However, Ocasio-Cortez wants to prevent ICE from protecting the nation against illegal immigration by defunding them.
Ocasio-Cortez also makes the wild assumption that all Latino people are “native” to the United States. Mexicans, Cubans, Puerto Ricans, and Central American IMMIGRANTS, whether legal or illegal, are NOT “native” to the U.S. That’s why they are called “IMMIGRANTS.”
Furthermore, many Latinos throughout both of the American continents do not have “Native American” blood, so how can they even claim to be natives of U.S. lands? I would compare my DNA against Ocasio-Cortez’s to determine who is the “most native.”
Ocasio-Cortez is a divisive politician. Sadly, Democrats, the liberal media, and many Republicans do not challenge her ignorance and or her anti-American positions.
ICE must be supported to protect and secure America’s borders. Immigrants of all races, ethnicities, nationalities, and religions must be checked prior to their entering our nation. Also, the only people “native” to the United States are its citizens and legal immigrant residents.
Ocasio-Cortez is dumb and provocative for making her outrageous comments.
