(RightWingAmericans.Com)- Far-left congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez demanded last week that illegal aliens be given free money to help them through the coronavirus pandemic. The New York representative said that illegals should be given a cut of the federal stimulus funds because they are entitled to a “fair share”.
“Undocumented people pay taxes,” she said. “So these folks, the folks that are working the farms to feed us, the people that are delivering our groceries and driving us from one place to another or doing our laundry and cleaning our clothes and our homes – these people pay taxes.”
AOC claimed that illegals pay for the recovery funds that they’re being cut out of, and that she thinks “we have to make sure they get their fair share and that they are included.”
AOC did not, however, discuss the fact that illegal aliens only reside in the United States because the Democrats protect them. If Donald Trump and the Republicans could enact the will of the people, illegal aliens would be deported as a result of their illegal entry into the United States. The fact that Democrats afford them the right to stay, under their sanctuary state policies, is the only reason why some illegal aliens pay taxes.

In a tweet, Ocasio-Cortez asked, “If you don’t believe undocumented workers should have access to relief during #COVID19, does that mean you’re willing return [sic] the billions they pay in taxes each year? Will you defund your schools?”

Or, in this moment, will we recognize that we should just take care of each other?

Republicans would likely argue “yes…as long as they’re deported.”
AOC’s argument is also flawed, according to researcher Matt Palumbo who publishes at bongino.com.
“The myth that illegal aliens in any way “pay for themselves” because they pay taxes is a myth that I had debunked years ago when AOC was still employed as a bartender,” Palumbo recently wrote.
“Illegals are taxpayers – but they aren’t even close to being net taxpayers. And they certainly aren’t keeping our public schools afloat,” he added, in a piece that breaks down the numbers.
Does AOC ever get anything right?
