Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez @AOC Congresswoman for NY-14 (the Bronx & Queens). In a modern, moral, and wealthy society, no American should be too poor to live. 💯% People-Funded, no lobbyist💰. Jan. 12, 2019 1 min read

Actually, the real way out is for GOP Senators to vote to reopen government, give people their paychecks, and fight for their wall another day.

To the aide that deemed nat’l emergency an “elegant” solution: tell that to the 1000s of US immigrants endangered by such a decision.

Do people realize how insanely dangerous of an idea it is to support *this President* in fabricating a “national emergency” over immigrants, especially when Homeland Security officially assessed the threat level at the southern border “minimal?”

No way. Pressure your Senators.

These are some GOP Senators blocking gov, but workable.

Call them, @ them, visit them, & ask they give workers their paychecks without the wall:
- WV: @SenCapito
- AK: @lisamurkowski
- GA: @SenatorIsakson
- FL: @marcorubio
