- Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez wants fellow Democrat, President Joe Biden, expand his executive order pardoning marijuana possession offenses to include illegal immigrants.
- “Contrary to rhetoric, Biden is not actually pardoning ALL federal simple marijuana possession convictions, only some,” the Bronx bombshell Congresswoman wrote on social media. “His executive order discriminates based on immigration status, which is frankly upsetting and inexcusable.
- “If the assertion here is that these laws should have never existed and were racist in their enforcement and impact, then the pardons should be for all impacted by them. It’s upsetting to see the racial impact of the War on Drugs recognized while perpetuating that impact by excluding immigrants from pardoning, who could significantly stand to benefit from it.”
