“Seth Barron, we are connoisseurs of irony, but if you claim to care about the environment,” Carlson said, before pivoting to commonly-used right-wing tactic of absurdly exaggerating the policy implications of a Green New Deal. “You think that the little piece of America you are responsible for that you represent and Congress will be clean, but hers isn’t. Why?”
Carlson’s guest responded by launching a direct, xenophobic broadside against her constituents.
“Part of the reason is because her district is actually one of the least American districts in the country,” Barron claimed. “By that, I don’t mean it’s not part of America, but it is occupied by relatively few American citizens. It is a very high percentage of her district is, in fact, illegal aliens.”
In fact, Barron does not know nor did he try to provide an exact number or percentage of people in AOC’s district who are non-citizens or “illegal aliens.”
