Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez claims illegal immigrants are “more American” than the 63 million citizens who voted for Trump.
Responding to Trump’s Oval Office address Tuesday evening, Ocasio-Cortez told MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow that Trump was holding the paychecks of furloughed government workers “hostage” in order to build a U.S.-Mexico border wall.

Breitbart.com reports: “In the actual address, there was falsehood after falsehood and we have to make sure that we get our facts straight. Everyday immigrants commit crimes at a far lower rate than native-born Americans,” Ocasio-Cortez said.

“And not only that but the women and children on that border that are trying to seek refuge and seek opportunity in the United States of America with nothing but the shirt on their backs are acting more American than any person who seeks to keep them out ever will be.”

The freshman congresswoman alleged, without citing any evidence, that the president has a “proven track record of discrimination against anybody who’s really non-white,” saying that “insane amount of dysfunction” has caused Americans to feel “unsafe.”
“No one should feel unsafe in the United States of America and that includes our amazing and beautiful and productive immigrant community. And moreover, the one thing that the president has not talked about is the fact that he has systematically engaged in the violation of international human rights on our border,” she continued. “He has separated children from their families.”
“The president should not be asking for more money to an agency that has systematically violated human rights. The president should be really defending why we are funding such an agency at all because right now, what we are seeing is death,” Ocasio-Cortez added.
In his prime-time remarks, President Trump called on Democrat lawmakers to fund a border wall, stating that it is needed to end a humanitarian “crisis,” blaming drugs and violence in the United States on illegal immigration.
“How much more American blood must we shed before Congress does its job?” he asked.
On Thursday, President Trump will visit the Southern border to highlight his proposal for a wall.
