Hypocrite AOC To Migrants: Not In My Backyard

Mayor Moves Migrant Tent City Out Of AOC's Bronx District

At a glance

  • New York City bills itself as a “sanctuary city” for migrants who illegally entered the country. There’s one problem: Not many NYC officials actually want to provide sanctuary for migrants.
  • The latest example: Mayor Eric Adams had planned to place a tent city for migrants in Orchard Beach, which is in Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s 14th Congressional District.
  • One might think this would be a perfect opportunity for AOC to display her compassion for migrants. But instead, she joined with other Bronx officials whose message to Adams was: Not in my backyard.
  • So Adams is “pivoting and shifting,” perhaps moving the tent city to Queens or some other outer borough.
