Representatives Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Jerry Nadler got the shock of their lives yesterday as they tried to conduct a midtown press conference as protestors quickly gathered to shout them down. They didn't get the reception they expected. As AOC and Nadler tried to speak they were drowned out by chants of “close the border.” The Roosevelt Hotel was the latest hot spot as illegal migrants were housed there. Some describe the hotel as a "major league shit house."
After yesterday even Kathy Hochul may be wishing that Lee Zeldin had won.
Two weeks ago, Curtis Sliwa was arrested for leading one of these demonstrations.
Speaking at a community meeting last week, New York City Mayor Eric Adams was blunt . “Let me tell you something New Yorkers, never in my life have I had a problem that I did not see an ending to. I don’t see an ending to this,” he said, referring to the influx of asylum-seekers arriving in the city from the southern border.
He warned that every community in the city would be hurt by the crisis, saying, “This issue will destroy New York City.”
