When Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez won the Democrat primary in New York's 14th Congressional District, she thought she had it made. She unseated Rep. Joseph Crowley (D), the fourth ranking House Democrat at the time.
It didn't matter that she only won by 4,000 votes. Once a Democrat wins in an inner-city New York District, it is next to impossible to defeat them.
But AOC quickly figured out that her biggest threat wasn't from the Left or the Right... it was from the Census.
New York is expected to lose at least one Congressional seat after the 2020 Census is counted. A lot of that is due to the exodus of people leaving New York for more tax-friendly states around the country.
The State Democrat Party will get to redraw the Congressional district maps after the census results are released, and they are gunning for AOC's seat. Part of that is a last-in, first-out mentality, but a lot of it is due to the fact that Establishment Democrats hate AOC.
So, AOC is now taking it upon herself to encourage her district to make sure that all census documents are filled out and returned to the government. And she is so desperate to save her seat that she is even encouraging illegal aliens to participate.
Technically, the census counts all individuals living in the United States, citizens and non-citizens alike. Yes, even including illegal aliens. The Federation for American Immigration Reform estimates that if only American citizens had been counted in the 2000 and 2010 censuses, California alone would have six fewer Congressional seats.
While no one disputes that illegal aliens are, technically, allowed to fill out census forms, it is unbelievable that a Member of Congress would actually campaign for illegal aliens to help her save her seat...
