AOC is Dangerous for America
AOC Speaks on the $2.2 trillion stimulus package,
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez gained national recognition when she won the Democratic Party's primary election for New York's 14th congressional district on June 26, 2018. Since then Americans have witnessed the greatest threat to rational discussion in congress, in the form of a young, incompetent spitfire socialist.
The bartender-turned-Congresswoman began her career at the beginning of 2019 throwing the entire nation into her entertaining spiral of ignorance and irrationality. Whenever she would not be heard, she would yell. When yelling would not work, she would call for the dissolution of key government agencies. Under the guise of "progressivism" Cortez has "led" the fight for Illegal immigration, repeatedly calling for the removal of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS),
The DHS does far more than deal with immigrants, they:
1. Secure the cyberspace of the United States
2. Watch for and neutralize terrorist threats in the states
3. Respond to natural disasters through its sub-agency FEMA
4. Protect US water-ways
5. Analyze all trades for dangerous materials
6. Protect the president and members of congress day-to-day through the sub agency known as the Secret Service
It's obvious that calling for the removal of the very agency that protects her during her rants seems counter-intuitive.
Ocasio-Cortez said she opposes giving any more money to agencies "who are enforcing President Donald Trump's immigration policies," namely Immigration and Customs Enforcement, repeatedly warning communities about ICE raid's and providing information on how to evade the agency tweeting:
So is it any wonder that in the throes of voting on one of the most historic bills in history AOC took to twitter to go on a rant denouncing the $2.2 trillion stimulus package because it leaves out illegal aliens?
"To clarify, $1200 checks are ONLY going to some w/social sec numbers, NOT immigrants w/ tax IDs (ITINs). Thanks to GOP, these checks will be cut off the backs of *taxpaying immigrants,* who get nothing. Many are essential workers who pay more taxes than Amazon."
The Internal Revenue Service issues ITINs to taxpayers who are ineligible for a Social Security number, mostly - though not exclusively - because they are present in the country illegally.
As Americans from both parties, we need to ask ourselves if AOC is someone to be trusted. Is she simply ignorant or is she a narcissist vying for attention? can someone who continuously calls for the removal of Departments crucial to American safety be allowed to occupy a seat in one of the most respected institutions of the United States? Can we sit back and watch her bash the decisions made for the future of our country, with our tax dollars?
