Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Goes Full Open Borders: “U.S. Is Native Land For ALL Latinos”

All Latinos have a race-based right to migrate to the United States, Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said Thursday.

β€œWe have to have … respect for the right of human mobility,” Ocasio-Cortez told a press conference on Capitol Hill.

She continued, β€œIt 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. β€œI will not commit one dollar – not one dollar β€” 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.

She also argued that the U.S. Constitution protects migration. β€œWe are a land of laws, and what that means is that everyone who steps on this soil … deserves to have access to our bill of rights. And that is what makes America special,” the New York representative said.
