How crazy are those views?
Is she unable to distinguish between the turmoil caused by individuals pouring over the border now and the legitimate immigration that occurred via a checkpoint back then? That there seems to have been a lot more checking and inspecting back then than there is now, when people are checked for diseases and to see if they are mentally damaged.
“Questionable candidates had to go through more in-depth interviews and medical screenings. If an immigrant showed signs of contagious illnesses, poor health, mental illness, or insanity, they could have been turned away on the basis that they would become a ward of the state.”
“In the years that followed, doctors at Ellis Island even came up with puzzles as well as memory tests to make sure that some immigrants were smart enough to get jobs. People could also be turned away if they were radicals, had a criminal record, or showed other signs of having a bad character.”
Furthermore, in contrast to what we currently witness, one of the things about it was ensuring that the individual wouldn’t end up as a ward of the state.
Elon Musk, who has been quite critical of Biden’s handling of the border problem, has some comments regarding AOC’s lack of historical knowledge.
Wow, that’s unlikely to sit well with AOC. She doesn’t like it when people question her or call her out on her lies, just like Joe Biden.
She said, “I was not born wealthy and ended up being the youngest woman in our nation’s history to get elected to Congress. Then I looked into Cohen, wrote the FEMA program that helped more people with funeral costs than any other in history, and headed the creation of the United States Climate Corps, which created tens of thousands of brand-new jobs. Don’t stop being mad.”
