New York socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s latest left-wing economic policy proposal would provide welfare benefits to illegal aliens.
She has introduced a set of legislation – six bills in total known as “A Just Society” – which has been described as a “socialist nightmare” by some.
“A just society provides a living wage, safe working conditions, and healthcare. A just society acknowledges the value of immigrants to our communities. A just society guarantees safe, comfortable, and affordable housing,” a website promoting the legislative package reads.
To nobody’s surprise, AOC has clearly chosen the wrong four-letter adjective, because this ‘dumb’ proposal includes something called the ‘Embrace Act.’
The description provided for the Embrace Act reads:
Our nation must recognize that our history–immigrants, enslaved peoples, and refugees built this country. We all do better when we create a just society that embraces our most vulnerable populations and paves a path to prosperity for all.
This bill would ensure that all persons in need are eligible for the largest programs of the social safety net, regardless of their immigration status.
She wants to take back tax cuts to the Middle Class and give taxpayer dollars to illegals.

Ocasio-Cortez’s bill states, “Notwithstanding any other provision of law … an individual who is an alien (without regard to the immigration status of that alien) may not be denied any Federal public benefit solely on the basis of the individual’s immigration status.”
Benefits by federal government standards include – among many other social aid programs – welfare, food stamps, disability, public housing, etc.
AOC followed up her sweeping proposals by trying to explain the mindset to a crowd of supporters last week.
The Embrace Act, she explained, is “a piece of legislation that ends similar discrimination based on documentation status.”
It’s discriminatory, you see, to expect people who wish to accept benefits from a nation to actually follow their laws.
“It’s kind of a next-level piece of legislation, and it is something that people are going to say, ‘Why would you do that?’ I believe that we need to acknowledge the contributions that immigrants make in America,” she continued.
Everybody in America acknowledges those contributions. What they don’t acknowledge is that some immigrants are, in fact, illegal, of which, numerous have been involved in gang activity, drunk driving episodes, or more reprehensible crimes and as such, do not deserve benefits.
“If you, if you, contribute to our society, I believe that you should benefit from our society,” she said.
What she fails to note is that illegal aliens commit identity theft at an exorbitant rate. Are they contributing to society?
It comes as no surprise that Ocasio-Cortez is hard at work in Washington trying to fight for the rights of illegals to the detriment of Americans.
During a House Oversight and Reform Committee hearing this past March, the New York Representative now leading the Democrat party, referred to illegal aliens as “my constituents.”
It’s pretty obvious who she’s working for.
