AOC Calls For Illegal Immigrants to Fill Out the 2020 Census
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.
