Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez: The U.S. Is ‘Native Land’ for all Latinos… Cannot be criminalized for identity because they descend from Native Americans.
“We are standing on Native land, and Latino people are descendants of Native people. And we cannot be told and criminalized simply for our identity and our status. Period.”
“We have to have … respect for the right of human mobility,” Ocasio-Cortez told a press conference on Capitol Hill.
She continued, “It is a right. We are standing on native land, and Latino people are descendants of native people. We cannot be told and criminalized simply for our identity or our status.”
Ocasio-Cortez’s racial claim would allow hundreds of millions of Latinos to migrate to the United States, regardless of U.S. laws and voters’ preferences. Her argument would also deny similar race-based migration rights to people who are not Latinos.
The New York Representative tied her open borders claim to her denunciation of funding for the Department of Homeland Security. “I will not commit one dollar – not one dollar — to an agency which dived when they were trusted to take care of Jakelin Caal.”
Caal was a Guatemalan child who died in early December 2018 after her father carried her across a remote stretch of the U.S-Mexico border. He was part of a large group of economic migrants who illegally entered the United States.
Ocasio-Cortez’s racial argument is different but also complementary to the open borders claims by American progressives who argue that the United States is a nation of and for immigrants, not a nation of and for Americans and their children. More
Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez gets upset when anyone criticizes her for saying moronic things and yet she just won’t stop. She’s a product of our disgraceful education system.
More cultural appropriation from the Democrats. Historians who really care about the truth will hit her hard on this one. She should get a trusted adviser to run everything she’s going to say past. Sadly, she’s too arrogant to do that.
