This is just getting silly. America's socialist Barbie doll posted a video yesterday to Twitter that suggested the migrant crisis flowing over our border is mainly Puerto Ricans and Canadians from Alberta fleeing from climate related disasters like hurricanes and wild fires.
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., claimed climate change is a “major factor” of the global migrant crisis after earlier suggesting that the United States would have “blood on our hands” if legislation is not passed to tackle climate change.
“The far-right loves to drum up fear & resistance to immigrants,” the freshman congresswoman tweeted on Tuesday. “But have you ever noticed they never talk about what‘s causing people to flee their homes in the first place?
Again, the accompanying video detailed the tragedies of wild fire in Canada and a hurricane that took place in Puerto Rico in late 2017.
This is just an absurd claim. Nobody flooding over our Southern border is coming from Puerto Rico or Canada for a number of reasons. And nobody in the GOP is trying to keep Puerto Ricans or Canadians out of the country. Hell, Puerto Ricans are already Americans citizens. They're already here.
The immigration crisis at our Southern border involves Central Americans fleeing from violent crime and extreme poverty. They're not worried about Canadian wildfire.
AOC's ridiculous video also suggested illegal immigrants will help improve our economy by providing us with more jobs. Surely she's not silly enough to believe the illegal migrants exploiting our immigration policies are bringing jobs and new opportunities with them in their duffel bags. That's literally the opposite reason why they're coming here.
Amazingly this satire-like video posted by AOC has been retweeted almost 10,000 times between her own account and the account where it originated from.
This claim is so absurd it doesn't even seem real. We thought it was a parody Twitter account when we first saw AOC post the video.
We were wrong.
