Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is now claiming that Latinos have the same status as Native Americans.
Democratic New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez claimed on Thursday that Latinos have a right to migrate into the United States because they descend from Native Americans.
“We have to have respect for children, respect for families, respect for human rights and respect for the right to human mobility because it is a right,” Ocasio-Cortez told a crowd while speaking out against Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and Customs and Border Protection (CBP).
“It is a right because we are standing on native land, and Latino people are descendants of native people,” she continued. “And we cannot be told and criminalized simply for our identity or our status.”
The self-proclaimed Democratic Socialist joined three of her fellow progressive congresswomen in calling for Democrats to reject any measure that funds additional appropriations to immigration enforcement.
