Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was on a late night talk show, with Seth Meyers, talking about her dog, Bernie Sanders, and asking everyone - including illegal immigrants - to complete the 2020 census.
The census comes one every ten years and people fill it out if they want to, or not.
Fox News ran a story on this and reported:

"We're all going to get mailed a prompt to fill out the census in the next two weeks or so," she said Thursday on “Late Night with Seth Meyers.” "And so I think what’s really important is that we all fill this out. It happens once every 10 years.”
“Every single person, no matter your documentation status, no matter your housing status, income, etc., is to be counted,” she said, before assuring viewers that the data included is “completely confidential” and not shared with other agencies.
“So don’t worry if you’re having a creative living situation, it’s not going to be told to your landlord or anything crazy like that,” she added.
Some people are criticizing her for asking people to complete a census knowing their living situation might be deemed illegal by the United States government, as it could potentially put them at risk of being deported - which is certainly possible if someone has broken the law and entered the country illegally./ Last Edited by: Frank
