At a press conference about the crisis involving illegal immigrants in New York City, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a member of the Democratic Party, was drowned out by protesters. Protesters shouted slogans such as "Close the border" and "Send them back."
The protesters are probably blaming themselves for the Democrats' failure to address the issue of illegal immigration. The truth is that most of the people who are coming into the country are not fleeing environmental disasters or violence, but are simply leaving countries that are dysfunctional. They're coming here to take advantage of our country's generous social welfare program. National security is also at risk due to the influx of migrants.

Some politicians in blue-state cities are starting to realize the severity of the situation regarding illegal immigrants. In New York City, Mayor Eric Adams warned that the number of migrants entering the city could destroy the area. It’s time for Democrats to start listening to the people who are affected by the situation.
It's amusing to see sanctuary cities, which were supposed to be virtuous by adopting lenient immigration policies, now being held accountable for their actions. Hopefully, this will serve as a wake-up message that they should prioritize the well-being and safety of their citizens instead of political correctness. But I'm not convinced that they'll listen to the people affected by the crisis.
