Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is urging illegal immigrants to fill out the 2020 census, with the understanding that they’ll be given political representation in federal programs and in the House of Representatives by submitting census data.
Ocasio-Cortez made the appeal for illegals to fill out the census on an appearance on Late Night with Seth Meyers. She sought to reassure those who are in the country illegally that they wouldn’t face legal repercussions for participating in the census, despite not having authorization to be in the country.
“Every single person- no matter your documentation status… determines how many members of congress each commmunity gets.”
Illegal immigrants are not eligible to vote in federal elections, although lax voter verification in liberal states sometimes enables them to get away with it. But if they’re counted on the census, they’re counted towards the population of congressional districts regardless. This means that illegal immigrants who fill out the census can help ensure liberal states such as California have more members of the House of Representatives.
“Your census data is not shared with any other federal agency at all.”
AOC was relatively shameless in advocating for illegal alien representation on the census.
The Census comes once every 10 years. From school💰to representation, it shapes many aspects of our lives.
*Everyone* counts in the Census, no matter who you are or where you’re from. You will NOT be asked about immigration status.

The Trump administration has sought to include questioning about citizenship status on the census, a question that would assuredly prevent illegals from utilizing it. The immigration question has thus far been delayed by the court system, and the administration appears to have given up on the premise of asking census respondents whether they’re US citizens or not.
American citizenship is merely a pointless bauble for leftists akin to Ocasio-Cortez. The federal programs that the census provides advisory information for aren’t obligated for Americans, but mere giveaways to anyone and everyone who arrives in the physical United States to make use of them.
Former Mexican Defense Minister is Arrested in Los Angeles for Allegedly Protecting a Drug Cartel
More Proof that Mexico is An Institutional Dumpster Fire
Retired Mexican General Salvador Cienfuegos was arrested on October 15, 2020.
According to allegations from U.S. prosecutors, General Cienfuegos received bribes from a powerful Mexican cartel and allowed to smuggle drugs into the United States.
An indictment that was unsealed on October 17, revealed that from December 2015 to February 2017, while he served as Mexico’s Secretary of National Defense, Cienfuegos allegedly worked on behalf of a drug cartel. In working with this drug cartel, Cienfuegos earned the nickname of “El Padrino” (The Godfather) by helping the H-2 Cartel move drugs from Mexico to the U.S.
“The defendant [Cienfuegos] abused that public position to help the H-2 Cartel, an extremely violent Mexican drug trafficking organization, traffic thousands of kilograms of cocaine, heroin, methamphetamine and marijuana into the United States,” prosecutors contended in a letter sent to a U.S. District Court judge in New York.
“In exchange for bribe payments,” the letter argued, he allowed the cartel “to operate with impunity in Mexico” while it operated distribution networks in cities such as Los Angeles and Las Vegas and in other states such as Ohio, Minnesota, North Carolina and New York.
U.S. agents took the retired general into custody on October 15 at Los Angeles International Airport. Cienfuegos is expected to be transferred to New York.
Cienfuegos served as defense secretary from 2012 to 2018 under the administration of then-President Enrique Peña Nieto.
“The main problem in Mexico is corruption,” López Obrador declared during a news briefing on October 16 regarding the incident.
In López Obrador’s view, it is “regrettable” that someone in such a high position of government has deep connections to drug cartels.
“This is a process of progressive degradation,” López Obrador continued, “and we are trying now to figure out how deep the corruption goes.”
As of now, Cienfuegos is the most prominent Mexican official to have been arrested on drug trafficking charges. In 2019, U.S. authorities arrested Genaro García Luna, the Secretary of Public Security under the administration of former President Felipe Calderón, for allegedly being involved in drug trafficking.
According to the U.S. indictment, Cienfuegos was working with H-2, an alleged branch of the Beltrán-Leyva criminal cartel. On top of that, prosecutors claims that the retired general received bribes to shield the cartel and its leaders. He then proceeded to inform them beforehand of military actions planned against them and even used troops to attack a rival cartel.
Mexico is clearly on the ropes institutionally. With a current president (AMLO) who wants to take a “hugs not bullets” approach to crime, the country will continue to spiral into chaos as drug cartels become even more powerful. President Trump has been right all along in building a wall to protect America from the potential spillover effects of Mexico’s drug war.
