Ocasio-Cortez: U.S. Is 'Native Land' for All Latinos

Ocasio-Cortez: U.S. Is 'Native Land' for All Latinos

Ed Markey of MA on the policy, which aims to achieve net-zero greenhouse gas emissions in 10 years and create thousands of jobs in renewable energy.

"Now that this resolution is released, we're taking the fight to districts across the country to build the political and public support for the Green New Deal, and get thousands of organizations signed on to back the resolution", said Stephen O'Hanlon, spokesman for the Sunrise Movement, which has pushed for the Green New Deal and staged protests at the Capitol, including a sit-in at Pelosi's office.

The so-called Green New Deal proposed by progressive U.S. Democrats is vague, flawed and controversial.

The New York Representative tied her open borders claim to her denunciation of funding for the Department of Homeland Security.

Pelosi also told reporters that on Wednesday she appointed members to the newly formed House Select Committee on the Climate Crisis. Ocasio-Cortez didn't seem to mind Pelosi's remarks on her flagship climate change proposal.

It goes on to say that "a new national social, industrial and economic mobilization on a scale not seen since World War II and the New Deal" is an opportunity to tackle systemic injustices of minority groups, create millions of high-wage jobs and "provide unprecedented levels of prosperity and economic security for all people of the United States".

Ocasio-Cortez's racial claim would allow hundreds of millions of Latinos to migrate to the United States, regardless of USA laws and voters' preferences.

Several Democratic presidential hopefuls have embraced the idea of a Green New Deal without saying exactly what it means.

"Not only will we not agree to fund [ICE], but we are here to say that an agency like ICE, which repeatedly and systematically violates human rights, does not deserve a dime", she continued.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., tweeted Thursday that she was proud to join Ocasio-Cortez and Markey "on a #GreenNewDeal resolution to fight for our planet and our kids' futures".

Freshman progressives and other Democrats who have come to support the Green New Deal were frustrated when it was previously revealed the committee would lack much of the power that other congressional committees possess.

Ocasio-Cortez had wanted the select committee to be given legislative and subpoena powers but it was not.

The legislation is already backed by more than 40 House Democrats, Bloomberg reports, including House Rules Committee Chairman Jim McGovern. There are specific flaws, too, including the neglect of nuclear power as a potentially important bridge between fossil fuels and the ideal of all-renewable energy. Trump and the Republican-controlled Senate are likely to oppose this one, too.

The Green New Deal proposal is named after President Franklin Roosevelt's sweeping "New Deal" economic and labor reforms during the Great Depression.
