After years and years of being told about how racist we are because we want the border closed, it seems the moment that the left gets some skin in the game, things change rather dramatically:. The Daily Wire reports:

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and other New York Democrats were shouted down during a press conference on Friday while speaking to constituents about the flood of illegal aliens that have hit the streets of New York City. “Close the border!” protesters shouted at the officials. “Close the border! Close the border!”

Other protesters became so aggressive in their confrontation with lawmakers that security personnel had to move them back.

Frankly, I find it difficult to summon any sympathy for this situation. In fact, the chief response here is dry amusement.

They were willing to inflict this situation on Texas and Florida and every other red state. Red States responded by shipping these illegals to self- proclaimed “sanctuaries”, and the result is what we see here.

They literally voted for this. The question is, will the consequences of what they voted for be enough to get them to reverse course, and not vote Democrat next time.
