Democratic New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez called illegal immigrants her constituents.
Ocasio-Cortez asked Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross a question at a House Oversight and Reform Committee hearing Thursday.
She led with a quote from Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, a Republican.
“Mr. Kobach later emailed to you on July 14 writing that the lack of the citizenship question ‘leads to the problem that aliens who do not actually reside in the United States are still counted for congressional apportionment services,'” she said.
“Of course they do reside in the United States. They reside in my district. They’re my constituents,” she added. (RELATED: Bar Hopping With Liberals On Election Night)
