Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez suggested that more immigration is a solution to declining birth rates in the United States as people suffer “under the burdens of capitalism.”
The firebrand Democratic representative from New York took to Instagram to express her dismay that young people aren’t having kids and offered a solution.
Births in the United States have remained “broadly stable,” according to the Census Bureau, though annual births have fallen off from roughly 4.1 million births in 1990 to 3.7 million births in 2019.
“There are quite a few countries that are really struggling because young people, under the burdens of capitalism and living in a society that is increasingly concentrating wealth among the rich, we’re not having kids. Or we’re not having kids at the same rate,” Ocasio-Cortez said.
“And we actually need immigrant populations to help balance things out. We can’t continue to fund social security, Medicare, all of this stuff without immigrants. And it’s always been that way. Don’t act like this is some new trend or anything like that.”
