Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is continuing to push for illegal aliens to receive coronavirus stimulus money, this time by claiming that our public schools are funded using “billions” in taxes paid by illegal aliens.
AOC is rallying against the recently enacted federal coronavirus recovery package. The bill is aimed at helping American citizens and legal immigrants but excludes illegal aliens from receiving payments.
“Yes, undocumented people pay taxes,” Ocasio-Cortez claimed during a video interview posted by The Hill. “Undocumented people pay billions of dollars in taxes every year.
“We send our kids to public school on the taxes that undocumented people pay.”
During the video she also discussed the $2.2 trillion Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act.
“So, this administration in the negotiations for this bill, basically said anything for immigrants is a non-starter,” Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said.
“Undocumented people pay more money in taxes than Amazon or Facebook, or anything combined,” she continued during the video interview.
“So yes, I believe that if you pay into this system, you should benefit from this system.”
“So there is not cash assistance for the undocumented, you have to have a social security number,” Rep. Ocasio-Cortez said.
