Perhaps it’s time for someone to remind freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) that she was elected under our founding system by American citizens to represent American citizens after her latest scheme to fleece taxpayers.

During a town hall event in the Bronx, Ocasio-Cortez told attendees that Americans should be on the hook for untold billions of dollars in payments and benefits to migrants who broke our laws to enter the country illegally.

Specifically, AOC said that taxpayer money should be utilized to make a “lifelong commitment” to illegal aliens who have been separated from their parents at the U.S.-Mexico border (which isn’t happening much anymore) to provide “mental health services” to them “for the rest of their lives.”

She argued that the U.S. government is now obligated to support migrant children because “even if you separate a kid from their parents for two days, you have already created life-long lasting trauma.”

“I believe we have responsibility to provide mental healthcare services to those children for the rest of their lives,” Ocasio-Cortez said.

She added: “And there are children who have been separated that we have reunified, and it took about a year to reunify some of these kids with their parents. Lifelong trauma for which we, the United States, are responsible… And it chills me to my core to think about 20 years from now, when these kids grow up, the story that they will have about America.”

While this may play to her tiny constituency in New York, it’s not a popular position for the rest of the country.

According to a new Marist poll which shows POTUS Donald Trump’s approval ratings the highest ever (in that survey) following his Twitter war with “AOC + 3” last week in which the unhinged media claimed he was racist for telling them to go back to their countries of origin and fix them before advising him how to fix America, by far most Americans are not at all enamored with giving free anythingto illegal aliens.

Least of all health care.

Though all 2020 Democratic presidential contenders have said publicly, on the debate stage, that they would support such legislation, the Marist poll found that only moderate Democrats remotely favor the idea (43 percent support/47 percent don’t). Other demographics, not so much, according to One America News Network‘s Ryan James Girdusky:

What about decriminalizing illegal entry into the U.S.? Again, only ‘moderate’ Dems come close to supporting that:

In fact, thanks to the wildly impractical views and policy preferences of Democrats, immigration, in general, has become ‘an issue’ again in 2020, according to a different survey from Gallup:

Gallup has asked the “most important problem” question since 1939, and has done so on a monthly basis since March 2001. Over the past 19 years, only five other issues have been mentioned at some point by at least the 27% who named immigration this month. These include the economy in general, unemployment, the situation in Iraq, terrorism and the government.

The pollster added, “Americans’ concern about immigration has reached a high point in Gallup’s measurement of the issue, at least based on the percentage of U.S. adults who perceive the issue to be the most important problem facing the country.”
