Democrat Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez held a press conference regarding the major influx of illegal migrants flooding almost every borough of New York City.
Instead of calling for the Biden administration to put an end to their open border policy, AOC called for the Federal government to expedite the process to allow the illegal immigrants to have the correct paperwork in order for them to legally work in the United States.
AOC’s speech was quickly drowned out by angry New Yorkers who had seen their city turn into a third world overnight.
Watch AOC get drowned out by protestors here:
JUST IN: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez tries giving a press conference on the migrant crisis in Manhattan but gets absolutely drowned out by angry New Yorkers.
Surprised she's not just crying about it at the border like she did when Trump was in office.

Per Fox News:
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., and other Democrats were loudly heckled Friday at a press conference in New York City regarding the migrant crisis there.
The Democrats, who spoke outside the Roosevelt Hotel in Manhattan, which has become a relief center for asylum seekers, were drowned out by shouting protesters chanting, “Send them back!” and “Close the border!”
“Close the border! Close the border! Respect the constitution, AOC! I am your constituent!,” a man was heard among the angry crowd, shouting into a megaphone.
“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,” Ocasio-Cortez said before the man wielding the megaphone shouted over her, saying, “Illegal immigration is not right! Respect the constitution, close the border!”
Rep. Adriano Espaillat, D-N.Y., said the delegation was there to “see for themselves what the migration dynamic is in our nation,” and that they saw children, families, “people that want to work, people that are fleeing violence, people that are fleeing environmental disasters.
