Radical Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) has called on illegal aliens to apply for Joe Biden's taxpayer-funded child tax credit.

The new credit plan was passed by Congress and signed by Biden in March and is intended to help struggling American families.

While speaking to reporters during a media briefing Thursday, Ocasio-Cortez urged illegal immigrants to apply for the grant.

During the presser, held at an IRS office in New York City alongside NY Democrats Sen. Chuck Schumer and Rep. Jerry Nadler, AOC outlined what applicants needed to do in order to make sure they would receive the payments.

She also touted centers where they could receive help applying online.

"These centers are also offering help to undocumented folks with eligible children," she said.

"So any child with a Social Security number is eligible," Ocasio-Cortez explained.

"Do not count yourself because a parent and guardian is undocumented.

"You just need your individual tax identification number or your ITIN.

"So please help us help you, help us help each other, and make sure you access the tools," she added.

"These checks are supposed to be hitting our bank accounts next week."

The child tax credit will deliver payments to eligible parents of children on a monthly basis starting July 15.

The payments will phase out for higher-earning families.

The full credit is available for single parents earning up to $75,000, and for couples earning up to $150,000.

Democrats have touted the claim that the payments would present an opportunity to cut child poverty in the United States by half.

"These payments represent the largest anti-poverty program in a generation!" Ocasio-Cortez said excitedly at the briefing.


The program is expected to cost more than $110 billion.

It will only last for one year but Democrats are seeking to extend the tax credit and make it a permanent part of the budget.
