For the first 150 years of our nation’s history, those serving in the US Congress were considered by a majority of Americans as being somewhat competent and aware of issues affecting their constituents, both domestic and foreign.
But in 2008 our nation and Capitol Hill changed for the worse with the election victory of Barack Hussein Obama, followed by his disastrous 2 terms in the White House.
Under what many consider to be Obama’s third term, the Biden administration has been intentionally attracting millions of illegal aliens, from over 160 countries, to cross the US/Mexican border.
In 2023, the record number of illegals has even liberal New York City Mayor Eric Adams demanding the federal government take responsibility for the number of illegals settling in The Big Apple.
Adams, a first-term politician insists the city has received over 90,000 migrants since spring 2022, and that the cost of caring for the foreign nationals would destroy the city.
According to the mayor’s office, 57,200 migrants are still in 194 shelters set up by the city as of this week, leaving 8.4 million NYC taxpayers — just 2.5% of the US population — to foot the bill to feed, shelter and provide for an outsize number of asylum seekers, many of whom are staying in the shelter system for months on end.
Radical climate activist and Socialist Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York (AOC) took to Twitter to confirm she’s clueless about the immigration crisis.
In response to a video she uploaded to her page, billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk pointed out the reason for Ocasio-Cortez’s comment mocking Republicans for causing the federal government to a budget shutdown.
“Boy math is needing 15 attempts to count the votes correctly to become Speaker and then shutting down the government 9 months later,” said Ocasio-Cortez.
Twitter influencer Ashley St. Clair replied to AOC’s video:
“Girl math is saying immigrants coming legally through Ellis Island is the same as 3 million undocumented migrants pouring through our border and costing NYC $1,000,000,000 to house migrants for free in hotels.”

The post mocked Ocasio-Cortez for attempting to downplay the migrant crisis by comparing the number of illegal aliens being sent to New York City and the millions of immigrants who had gone through Ellis Island between 1892 and 1954.
“She’s just not that smart,” Musk responded.
In her spastic response to Musk’s reply, AOC didn’t address the migrant crisis but instead touted her accomplishments trying to prove that she is intelligent.
“I wasn’t born rich and became the youngest woman in American history to be elected to Congress. Then I investigated Cohen, authored the largest FEMA funeral assistance program in history, and led creation of a US Climate Corps to create tens of thousands of new jobs. Stay mad,” she responded with an emoji of a woman flipping her hair.

Ms Ocasio-Cortez has previously had run-ins with Musk.
She claimed the owner of X, had meddled with her account.
The neophyte politician complained that following a public argument, her Twitter account had seemingly stopped working properly.
