    It's more that she's down playing actual state sponsored and led genocides with economic migrants. Even in the worst cases, it's people fleeing crime.
    They're not remotely the same thing.
    As far as offensiveness, your mileage may vary, but it's totally inaccurate.

Honestly in our discourse would be helpful.
    The RAISE act that the republicans tried to pass would make our system resemble Australia and Canada's which would prioritize high skilled highly educated single people.
    So mostly imigrants from China and India, who are screwed by the current "Diversity system" that puts quota's on how many people from any country can enter.
    The people who would be helped the most would be BROWN people.

    If you want honesty in discussion, why don't you be honest and say what you really mean from the above quote.....
    I wish people I don't like would come out and say they were racist so I wouldn't have to debate the merits of their ideas, and I could just call them racist.

    Fleeing from organized state sponsored violence, and fleeing from poverty and lack of opportunity aren't remotely the same thing.

    Those two things are not mutually exclusive. You are aware of that. Right? One can even...checks notes...cause the other... GASP!

    Fleeing from state sponsored organized violence and fleeing from organized violence are similar. But you believe what you want buddy.

    Since when does poverty and lack of opportunity lead directly to government organized murder of minority groups?
    There are lots of poor countries that never experience genocide.

    No, they're not. They're only tangentially similar, in the sense that there is violence in both cases.

    When a government does it, it's much more effective and much more through than when criminals just engage in violence.
    That's why the US government was so successful at wiping out the native Americans, and gangs kill only a few thousand a year.
    They're not remotely similar.

    Also, the vast majority of these people aren't "fleeing violence" they're economic migrants, it's not remotely the same thing as what Ocasio-Cortez described.

    I have regularly heard Conservatives, when people complain about there being a lack of opportunities where they live, suggest "Why don't you just move." Completely ignoring the poverty of the people.

    Now when people are fleeing from violence you have "you're just fleeing poverty."

    You know what I say:¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    So it's not the same... except the violence part. Brilliant!

    Are you saying that 300,000 bananas is not remotely similar to 300 bananas?

    Do you know what tangential means?

    Also how can something be tangentially similar and also NOT REMOTELY similar? You should stop hitting yourself.
