With the debate over illegal immigration (or what the Democrats refer to merely as “immigration”) raging on, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez tried to take a swipe at proponents of the enforcement of immigration laws:
Gotta love the rich irony of people who fondly recount stories of how their family’s last names were changed on Ellis Island after their relatives snuck onto a boat escaping some horror now taking fervent anti-immigrant stances & branding innocent human beings as “illegal.”

Err… where to start?
I had no idea immigrants were sneaking into the US via Ellis Island.

Interesting. Please cite an example of an immmigrant arriving at Ellis Island illegally. All the names are available, so it should be easy to supply at least a sample list.

Because no one got turned away at Ellis Island, right?
Oh, wait. https://t.co/OU5abTcydC

We’re still trying to figure it all out too.
All those dang people who snuck right up to the port of entry!

There is no irony – you are just showing us how dim you are

You failed American history, didn’t you.

Level with me, is there some weird thrill for you in being wrong all the time about everything? I mean wow, I have yet to see you be right about anything. lol

I don't think I've ever seen a human on this planet who's as much of a source of painfully daft nonsense as this woman https://t.co/wfEgS2AifG

Even more evidence that we need to abolish the Department of Education. https://t.co/NyQa31ErNL
