Ocasio-Cortez SCREWS UP Basic Grade School History, Insults Ellis Island Immigrants

Carrying the torch for Progressive Democrats, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is no stranger to passing misguided and misinformed information along to her fans.

According to The Federalist Papers, in a vain attempt to be woke and sound like she knows what she is talking about she showed how ignorant she is to American history.

The 29-year-old congresswoman from the Bronx said that immigrants who came to the United States via Ellis Island were also undocumented.

“The reason your abuela was ‘legal’ was likely bc there was effectively no ‘illegal’ US immigration when she came, except for the Chinese.

“The US’ first imm law was the Chinese Exclusion Act, & explicit racism was allowed as legal grounds for US immigration laws until *1952.*,” she said in a tweet to someone who said their aunt came legally.
