Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and other Democrats were loudly booed and heckled at a Friday press conference in New York City.
Fed-up New Yorkers blasted AOC regarding the migrant crisis as NYC continues to overflow with illegal border crossers.
As Slay News recently reported, NYC’s Democrat Mayor Eric Adams has even warned that the issue is “destroying the city.”
The Democrats were speaking outside of a hotel in Manhattan that has become a relief center for the migrants.
However, AOC and others were shouted down by protesters chanting, “Send them back!” and “Close the border.”
“My name is Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez,” the congresswoman told the angry crowd,
“I’m here alongside Representative Adriano Espaillat, and we’re incredibly thrilled and excited to be here…” AOC started saying as the crowd let her have it.
“We have geographic diversity here, including representatives from California, Texas, Illinois, and New Jersey,” she said.
The crowd erupted:
“Close the border,” they yelled.
“Close the border,” the crowd continued chanting.
“Respect the constitution, AOC.
“I am your constituant.”
AOC continued on but no one could hear her:
“And what we seek to do is to make sure that all the resources are necessary and that we are joining with the city and state.”
A protester yelled:
“Illegal immigration is not right.
“Respect the constitution, close the border.”

Last week, Mayor Adams told his constituents that Democrat President Joe Biden’s border policies and handling of the migrant crisis “will destroy New York City.”
Adams said the White House has given “no support” for the thousands of illegal border crossers who are arriving in NYC.
The mayor told New Yorkers that they should expect illegal aliens to flood all neighborhoods across the city as authorities are losing control of the situation.
He warned the public that he sees no end in sight to Biden’s self-made crisis.
“I’m gonna tell you something, New Yorkers, never in my life have I had a problem that I didn’t see an ending to,” Adams said.
“I don’t see an ending to this.
“This issue will destroy New York City,” the mayor declared.
“Destroy New York City,” he emphasized.
