Miss Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is outraged that 150 million would-be immigrants, mostly in Africa and Latin America, are being denied their rightful share of the recently-passed stimulus package.
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) is very upset that potential immigrants won’t be receiving $1,200 checks in the $2 trillion emergency relief bill unanimously passed by the Senate Wednesday night.
According to 2018 Gallup polls, approximately 750 million people worldwide, would migrate to a different country if they could. Of these, about one fifth, or 150 million, would migrate to the US.
The only reason they’re unable to do so is poverty, and cruel border policies – which are a legacy of colonialism and white-supremacy.
Miss Ocasio-Cortez has a point. In much of Central America and Africa, roving gangs of violent criminals prey upon the local population. The US is large enough to accommodate the entire population of Central America and Africa, and still have room to spare.
For example, we could clear out these useless trees to make room for apartment complexes:
It’s a shame that all this empty space is not being used for factories to help support our burgeoning immigrant population:
If only we had the political will, there’s no reason we can’t bulldoze these ugly, and uneven, rocks and build shopping malls:
As you can see, we have plenty of space that is not being utilized for the advancement of diversity. I would even say that such waste is a crime against humanity.
In a supposedly advanced, and progressive, society such as our own, it’s mind-boggling that we would limit this 2 trillion dollar windfall to those who were able to make the dangerous voyage to our shores – while neglecting the 150 million people who, through no fault of their own, were unable to do so.
Please join me in supporting Miss Ocasio-Cortez in her noble fight to share the wealth worldwide.
