In many ways AOC is a lot like Trump:

- They both have a base of supporters that will march off a cliff with them.
- They both give a powerful voice to a substantial portion of the population who felt unheard, disrespected, and ignored.
- They both speak through Twitter, and do not hesitate to viciously lash out at their critics.
- They both project righteous anger and copious indignation.
- They both command media attention disproportionate to their accomplishments.
- They both have caused their parties to shift their positions a lot.
- They both came in with no experience in politics.
- They both cause people on the opposite side of the political spectrum to hate their guts with foaming-at-the-mouth passion.

I suspect (with great trepidation) that this is the future of national politics.

They are different in that she's way, way smarter and much more articulate than Trump, and likely less vain and shallow. Plus she's not a big fat disgusting pig.

Even more serious, the imprisoned illegal immigrants, over a five-year period, had been arrested for 33,300 homicide-related offenses and 1,500 terrorism-related crimes.

In terms of cost, federal taxpayers shelled out more than $15 billion during the period studied or $2.5 billion a year to keep criminal aliens behind bars in federal, state and local facilities.

Many are repeat offenders. Of about 146,500 criminal aliens who finished a federal prison term, about one in six around 24,800 already had been imprisoned again at least once.

One of the most intellectually dishonest pieces Ive ever read. GromsDad level stupidity.

Heres the link to the GAO report, so you can figure out on your own why:

https://www.gao.gov/assets/700/693162.pdf

Heres a highlight for you: GAOs analyses found that 92 percent of the criminal aliens incarcerated in federal prison from fiscal years 2011 through 2016 were convicted of primary offenses related to immigration or drugs[.]




Here are the stats from the report

Lotta violent crime there

Not sure why youd want to pretend otherwise


Table 2: Estimated Number and Percent of Attempted or Committed Offenses for Which Criminal Aliens Incarcerated in Federal Prisons from Fiscal Years 2011 through 2016 who had an FBI Number Were Arrested/Transferred from 1974 through 2017

Drugs 336,600
Traffic violations 204,400

Yes, over a 43-year period, over 75% of the arrests, not convictions, were for immigration offenses, drugs, traffic crimes, and obstruction of justice. The op-ed in your post was ridiculously dishonest. Want to guess what the statistics are for US citizens?

The reason 1 in 5 federal prisoners are immigrants is because about 25% of federal prosecutions are for immigration offenses. About 7% of federal prosecutions are for violent offenses. More than 90% of non-citizens federal inmates are removed after their sentence is up. You are way more likely to be the victim of a violent crime committed by a US citizen than committed by an illegal alien.

You want to debate the topic, at least be honest about it.

Would you consider yourself an idealist?

On a side note, all my friend's that are rich businessmen sold coke in their 20s.

Mostly so they could have their own free supply.

If those guys got caught they would have been in jail.

Those guys are all 1%ers and you want them in jail.

I can see that.

Aristotle says in tragedy it's always someone near and dear who takes you out.

She might be able to do something else if her popularity keeps rising.

Her popularity is rising because the republicans are raising it. This the the plan. Make a complete nut case the leader of the democrat party.

Really? You think getting a bunch of uneducated street people to vote for you under the promise (lie) of free stuff is an accomplishment? Exploitation used to be frowned upon.

What notable thing has she done?
