Meet the ‘anti-AOC’ millennial running for Congress


TRISH: KATLINA IS A SMALL BUSINESS OWN AND LEGAL IMMIGRANT. SHE IS BEING CALLED THE ANTI-AOC. SHE IS MOTIVATED BY LOVE FOR HER COUNTRY, AND SHE SAYS SHE BELIEVES IN EVERYTHING THAT AMERICA STANDS FOR. BUT NOT HATE JOINING ME NOW ILLINOIS CONGRESSIONAL CANDIDATE, KATLINA. WHAT DO YOU MEAN YOU ARE THE ANTI-AOC?>>YOU KNOW, I’M NOT ANTI-ANYONE. I AM PRO AMERICA. IT’S TIME WE ELECT PEOPLE WHO ARE GOING TO BE STANDING UP FOR EVERY DAY AMERICANS AND STANDING UP FOR THE VALUES OUR COUNTRY WAS FOUND UPON. TRISH: YOUR MOTHER CAME HERE FROM GAWTD DROM GAWTD DFRM GAWTD DFROMGAWTD DFROM GWTD DFROM GUAD DFROM GUATEMALA?>>YES. WORKED THREE JOBS, LEARNED ENGLISH AT NIGHT JUST TO MAKE IT BY. AND WAS ABLE TO LIMB GRATE AND WAS ABLE DO LIMB GRATE AND WAS ABLE D WLIMB GRATE AND WAS ABLE D WASMB GRATE AND WAS ABLE D WAS A GRATE AND WAS ABLE D WAS ABLRATE AND WAS ABLE D WAS ABLEATE AND WAS ABLE D WAS ABLE TE AND WAS ABLE D WAS ABLE TO IMMIGRATE HERE LEGALLY. TRISH: SHE WATCHED YOU GROW YOU HAVE AND WATCH YOU RUN FOR CONGRESS ONE DAY YOURSELF. IS THAT GETTING LOST IN TODAY’S POLITICAL WORLD?>>IT IS. IT’S SO SAD WE HAVE SUCH DIVISIVE RHETORIC COMING FROM THE LEFT. AND THE SENSE OF ENTITLEMENT ON PEOPLE WHO HAVE IMMIGRATED HERE. WOMEN LIKE MY MOTHER WHO IMMIGRATED HERE WORKED THREE JOBS AND LEARNED ENGLISH, THEY HAVE A PROFOUND GRATITUDE. THEY CAME HERE BECAUSE IT WAS THE LAND OF OPPORTUNITY. PEOPLE FORGET THAT. WE NEED TO GO BACK TO THAT AND RECOGNIZE WHY PEOPLE WANT TO COME HERE. WE LIVE IN THE GREATEST COUNTRY IN THE WORLD. TRISH: I THINK THE WAY IN WHICH WE HAVE ALWAYS SORT OF PRESENTED THAT AMERICAN DREAM OR TURN THE IS VERY MUCH AT RISK. IF YOU GRAVITATE TOWARDS FRANKLY VENEZUELA-STYLE SOCIALISM BECAUSE THAT’S WHAT ALL THE SOCIALISTS ECONOMIES DETERIORATE INTO. IF YOU SAY WE ARE GOING TO OPEN UP OUR BORDERS. WE’LL HAVE FREE COLLEGE, YOU NAME IT. THAT SYSTEM JUST DOESN’T WORK. I’M ACTUALLY VERY PRO IMMIGRANT WE NEED TO BRING MORE PEOPLE LIKE YOUR MOM TO CAME HERE LEGALLY AND BELIEVED IN THE STURNT THIS COUNTRY COULD PROVIDE HER AND HER CHILDREN. BUT SOMEHOW THE LEFT HAS TAKEN THIS AND REALLY TRANSFORMED IT INTO SOMEHOW AMERICAR TODAY OWES YOU — THAT AMERICA OWES YOU SOMETHING. DOES AMERICA OWE ANYBODY ANYTHING?>>NO. WE WERE ABLE TO MAKE IT HERE BECAUSE OF PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY. YOU DEFINE YOUR DESTINY. A GOVERNMENT DOESN’T DO THAT FOR YOU. WHEN YOU LOOK AT THE ECONOMY AND THE COUNTRIES THAT ARE SOCIALIST, THAT’S NOT WHAT OUR COUNTRY WAS FOUNDED UPON AND WE NEED TO RECOGNIZE THAT. IT’S SO SAD THAT TO MILLENNIALS TBIEN THIS IDEA THAT SOCIALISM WORKS. IT DOESN’T. READ A HISTORY BOOK. LOOK AT THE COUNTRIES LIKE TO VENEZUELA THAT YOU MENTIONED. WE HAVE TO INSURE THAT IN ORDER TO PRESERVE THE AMERICAN DREAM WE ARE STANDING FIRM IN OUR VALUES AND STANDING FIRM WITH AMERICA. TRISH: I WISH YOU SO MUCH LUCK
