Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) said that illegal immigrants were her constituents during a House Oversight and Reform Committee on Thursday.

Ocasio-Cortez was questioning Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross about adding a citizenship question to the 2020 census when she made the remarks.

“Mr. Kobach later sent an email to on July 14th, writing that the lack of the citizenship question ‘leads to the problem that aliens who do not actually reside in the United States are still counted for congressional apportionment services,'” Ocasio-Cortez said. “Of course, they do reside in the United States, they reside in my district. They are my constituents.”
