AOC, other Dems drowned out by screaming protesters at NYC migrant crisis news conference

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and other Democrats were loudly heckled Friday at a press conference in New York City regarding the migrant crisis there. The Democrats, speaking outside of a hotel in Manhattan that has become a relief center for asylum seekers, were drowned out by shouting protesters chanting “send them back!” and “close the border!” “My name is Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. I’m here alongside Representative Adriano Espaillat, and we’re incredibly thrilled and excited to be here…” Ocasio-Cortez started saying as the crowd started growing in noise outside the Roosevelt Hotel. “We have geographic diversity here, including representative from California, Texas, Illinois and New Jersey,” she added. “Close the border! Close the border! Respect the constitution AOC! I am your constituant!” a man was then heard shouting into a megaphone. “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” Ocasio-Cortez continued saying before man weilding the megaphone shouted over her, saying “Illegal immigration is not right! Respect the constitution, close the border!”  This is a developing story. Please check back for updates.
