Another scandal has erupted around New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. She’s making things even more difficult for Democrats.
And Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez demanded one thing from Joe Biden that left him red with rage.
President Joe Biden issued an executive order in the run-up to the midterm elections that pardoned anyone convicted of federal charges for simple marijuana possession.
After years of pressure from leftist activists, the move was an attempt to toss a bone to the Democrat Party’s most radical left-wing before the election.
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and her “Squad” are enraged that the executive order did not go far enough.
President Biden’s pardon only applies to American citizens, but Ocasio-Cortez believes it is insufficient.
“Contrary to rhetoric, Biden is not actually pardoning ALL federal simple marijuana possession convictions, only some,” Ocasio-Cortez wrote on social media. “His executive order discriminates based on immigration status, which is frankly upsetting and inexcusable.
Rep. Ocasio-Cortez wants illegal aliens to benefit from Joe Biden’s latest criminal gift.
Now, AOC and her “Squad” are upping the ante by requesting that President Biden pardon illegal aliens convicted of federal marijuana charges and reassess the immigration status of illegal aliens deported for marijuana offenses.
“Therefore, it is of utmost importance that the Administration pardon all simple marijuana possession offenses – regardless of immigration status,” the Democrats wrote. “Using the power of the pardon is a constitutional imperative and a critical tool in rectifying the compounding racial injustices of draconian drug policies.”
Biden’s marijuana pardon is only an opportunity for Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to advocate for a backdoor amnesty for some illegal immigrants.
“Granting pardons to all simple marijuana possession offenses – regardless of immigration status – demonstrates genuine compassion while ensuring that our country continues to mitigate the inhumane and ineffective drudge policies that have ravaged communities of color for so long,” the letter adds.
Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez asked that Biden reopen “the immigration cases of those who were deported for marijuana-related offenses.”
Unsurprisingly, the Biden administration appears to be caving in to AOC’s absurd demand of pardoning illegal immigrants.
According to a Biden administration official, the pardon only applies to American citizens and green card holders, but others – presumably illegal aliens – might seek for one as well.
“This particular pardon is limited to U.S. citizens and legal permanent residents who committed simple possession of marijuana,” the official said. “Others who believe they have persuasive cases for clemency can apply through the regular pardon process.”
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez will not be pleased until the Democratic establishment caves in to all of her irrational demands.
