Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez: Illegal Aliens Are ‘My Constituents’

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez: Illegal Aliens Are ‘My Constituents’

U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez took to social media Friday to show her followers how she dealt with what she deemed a "boring" hearing.

Ocasio-Cortez has had a rough couple of weeks as multiple complaints have been filed against her or people on her staff alleging potential campaign finance violations.

"The reason people know more is bc Fox News has turned into "AOC TMZ" (no offense to TMZ), so awareness is growing w/ GOPers", Ocasio-Cortez tweeted.

Democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, whose sudden rise to prominence has made her a target of Republicans and a sometime irritant to her party's leaders, called capitalism an "irredeemable" system that is to blame for income inequality.

"Of course they do reside in the United States".

Ethiopia Finds 'Clear Similarities' Between 2 Boeing 737 MAX 8 Crashes

Oil hits four-month highs with support from tightened supply
Furthermore, the record high US crude oil production continues to threaten the market share of OPEC and Russian Federation . Brent crude oil futures hit a 2019-peak of $68.14 per barrel Thursday, before falling to $67.19/Bbl.

That's up from 26% last September, in the wake of her primary win over longtime Representative Joe Crowley.

In September, Ocasio-Cortez's "favorable" vs "unfavorable" rating was almost deadlocked at 24% and 26% respectively, now it stands at 31% and 41% respectively.

Ocasio-Cortez is a self-declared Democratic socialist and is backing expansive programs, especially as she leads the push behind the Green New Deal, the latest effort by Democrats to solving the climate crisis. "The only more recognizable member so early on was Hillary Clinton in 2001, who was already well-known from the previous decade as first lady", McCarthy added. The fact that Republicans are more likely to have an opinion of her than Democrats helps explain her overall net-negative rating.

Ocasio-Cortez shot back at Fox News for judging what she wore.

"Ocasio-Cortez. created an environment where challenges to incumbents are no longer off-limits", a Bronx political insider said.
