During an interview with MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow, newly-elected Democrat Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez claimed that those crossing the border into the United States illegally are more American than U.S. citizens who want to see the border secure.

“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,” she said, apparently ignorant of the fact that people who cross the border illegally are, by definition, criminals.

She also accused Trump of being bigoted against anyone “non-white” without providing any evidence to support her allegation.

Here’s video of her statement:

She had much more to say, as the following two-minute rant reveals:

While many cheered her, one person noted:

“Emotion, ignorance and nonsense” pretty much sums up Ocasio-Cortez.

And let’s not forget that the police officer killed Dec. 26 was a legal immigrant murdered by alien in the country illegally.  Worse yet, we later learned the suspect had help from even more illegals.
