On ABC’s Nightline, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez argued this week that President Trump is “targeting” illegals during the coronavirus pandemic and making them afraid to go to the doctor if they have symptoms.
“He has been contributing to the health inequities by targeting communities like ours. He’s made people afraid to go to the doctor because they are concerned that ICE will pick them up in the E.R.,” the open-borders Ocasio-Cortez said. Well, if they weren’t in the country illegally, that wouldn’t be an issue.
“When you don’t have health insurance and you are scared to go to the doctor, your decisions around your own health become primarily financial decisions,” Ocasio-Cortez said. And it becomes gambling.” She called for “system solutions to systemic inequalities” because “inequality” and “poverty” are “pre-existing conditions.”
The “system solution” Ocasio-Cortez would prefer is socialism. There is no more crushing systemic inequality than that.
