Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez: “We have to make sure that [undocumented workers] get their fair share.”
“Undocumented people pay taxes. 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,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “They pay for the very recovery funds that they are being cut out of on city, state or federal levels, and so we have to make sure they get their fair share and that they are included.”

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) insisted over the weekend that illegal immigrants are entitled to their “fair share” of federal and state stimulus funds because some pay more in taxes than corporations that have been bailed out.
Ocasio-Cortez also said corporations that are not paying any taxes are getting bailed out while illegal immigrants who pay some taxes are not being included.
She asked: “If these big corporations don’t pay taxes but they’re getting bailed out by the federal government — why are we cutting out undocumented people who are actually paying more taxes than these other folks?”
The New York Democrat also praised California for giving illegal immigrants stimulus funds and said California’s recovery program is “leaps and bounds” better than what New York has done to help illegal immigrants. More
Think about how insane it is to suggest in a time of crisis that the leech cultures in our country think Americans should be paying foreigners.

Americans don’t owe illegals a darn thing. AOC is a complete idiot. Why would illegal aliens get any stimulus money? They are working illegally which means off the books.

If you don’t believe undocumented workers should have access to relief during #COVID19, does that mean you’re willing return 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?
