NYC Residents Blast AOC for ‘Abandoning’ Constituents amid ‘Unbearable’ Migrant Crisis

New York City residents in Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s (D-NY) district have blasted the congresswoman for being “obsessed with climate change” while her constituents are left battling with an “unbearable” illegal migrant crisis.

AOC’s constituents are expressing outrage over the surge in illegal aliens and crime in their Queens, NYC neighborhood.

Residents say they feel let down by AOC, arguing that the celebrity Democrat is “abandoning” the people who got her elected to the House of Representatives.

“Fox & Friends Weekend” co-host Rachel Campos-Duffy visited residents in Jackson Heights, in the heart of AOC’s district.

Campos-Duffy spoke with concerned voters about how the influx of illegal immigration and crime has impacted their neighborhood.

“Things have just really gone into overdrive,” Campos-Duffy told “Fox & Friends” host Steve Doocy on Wednesday.

“It’s unbearable they say.

“The other thing is just this giant disconnect between what AOC cares about … and what they as a community care about.”

Ocasio-Cortez’s constituents argue that the congresswoman is too busy with globalist issues to address their concerns.

“You see AOC obsessed with climate change,” Campos-Duffy explained.

“They just want the trash… from these illegal vendors…that’s piling up, cleaned up.

“They’re worried about the public urination by these vendors even in front of children.”

The Jackson Heights neighborhood has battled illegal flea markets recently.

The issue has had a detrimental impact on small businesses trying to compete with the ultra-low street prices.

Crime in the area has also spiraled out of control, prompting some to fear for their safety as “murders” and “robberies” have escalated dramatically.

“There’s so much immigration,” one resident said.

“There’s so many Venezuelans, Ecuadorians, Mexicans that crossed over… due to Biden.”

The local added that crime has surged in the area.

Campos-Duffy translated for many of the district’s Spanish-speaking residents.

Many said they haven’t felt safe in their neighborhood recently and are desperate for things to change.

“After 7 p.m…. You cannot walk around here,” one woman told Campos-Duffy.

“I feel very unsafe, truly,” another woman said.

“I’ve had three times someone try to assault me, try to pull… my gold chain.”

“Brick-and-mortar businesses are suffering a lot,” Ramses Frias, a former Democrat who is running for State Assembly District 39, said.

“We have a lot of closed doors, a lot of businesses that are just closing every single day because they can’t compete with the prices of… the street vendors outside are giving everyone.”

Frias previously shot a video that showed how the once-vibrant community in the Democrat’s 14th Congressional District has essentially deteriorated into a large flea market with trash overflowing on street corners.

The issue has led to third-world-like scenes with unsavory and unhygienic conditions.

In response to the video, AOC issued a statement claiming that “anti-immigrant policies” are to blame for the crisis.

The congresswoman said:

“What we are seeing here is the result of anti-immigrant policies that deny immigrants proper work permits and vending licenses, and drive them into the shadows of undignified conditions.

“This is just one way of many that anti-immigrant policies hurt all of us.

“Paths to citizenship and work documentation can solve this problem – but Republicans would rather block those so they can film people in their worst moments for views.”

However, the issue is related to illegal aliens, not legal immigrants, flooding the city and is unrelated to Republican policies.

Residents told Fox News that businesses in the area are suffering as a result of the illegal migrant influx and related crime.

Many have been forced to close their doors early.

Others, meanwhile, have been forced to shut down permanently.

“We take pride in our place,” one woman said.

“We work really hard.

“We are immigrants who came here for the right reasons to work, and we just wish that those who aren’t complying with the law would be held accountable.”

Campos-Duffy asked the voters what message they wanted to send to AOC amid the current challenges on city streets.

“We would ask her to do her job of taking care of this neighborhood,” one resident said.

“She is never here,” one woman told Campos-Duffy.

“I was a volunteer for her. She completely abandoned our community.

“I hope that she sees this interview because we all helped her get elected.

“She said she only cares about Washington and her money.

“Nobody loves her here anymore.”

Campos-Duffy even paid a visit to AOC’s office, but she was nowhere to be found.

She was told the congresswoman is only there one day a week because it’s a “satellite office.”

“This is a total disconnect between what AOC, who is rarely ever there, is ensconced in her… penthouse in Washington, D.C., and what the people of this community care about,” Campos-Duffy said.

“They say the conditions are simply unlivable.

“It’s dangerous, and they want something to change.”
