    Default AOC rips Mayor Adams’ migrant tents in her district: ‘We can get to a place with a be

    The political pleasantries didn’t last long.

    Immediately after appearing together in public for the first time Friday, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., took aim at Mayor Adams’ plan to erect a migrant tent camp in her district, charging that there’s a “better solution” to be had.

    The progressive congresswoman, who’s had a simmering beef with the more moderate-minded mayor for months, offered the rebuke in a brief interview with the Daily News on the steps of City Hall following a press conference with Adams on an unrelated topic.

    “I think we can get to a place with a better solution here,” Ocasio-Cortez said when asked about the tent facilities being built in the Bronx’s Orchard Beach parking lot to house upward of 1,000 Latin American migrants.

    Ocasio-Cortez said she also ”very much“ sides with ”the sentiment” of Bronx Borough President Vanessa Gibson, who raised a number of concerns about the Orchard Beach site earlier this week, including poor transit access and susceptibility to flooding.

    Ocasio-Cortez, who hasn’t previously commented on the tent facility in her 14th Congressional District, said she’s in talks with other lawmakers about “figuring out if there are additional federal resources” that could be allocated to help the city house migrants.......

    Which tent did she rip?

    Did she use a knife?

    Wait?

    So, AOC and this mayor are arguing about tents for illegal immigrants/'migrants'/'asylum seekers'?

    When there are over 52,000 homeless Americans in NYC?
    Including over 16,000 CHILDREN?


    https://www.coalitionforthehomeless....new-york-city/

    Has the left completely lost it's collective mind?

    (not that the right are doing anything on this - but I expect that from them)


    Once again...I DESPISE both parties.

    Maybe if she started demanding more federal resources for Texas and the other border states, they could keep them in the border states instead of sending them to NYC.

    Better yet, reinstate the Trump policies and at least bring a little order to the border!

    AOC was concerned about the area because it is prone to flooding and lacks easy access to public transportation. Her concerns seem reasonable to me.

    it has been corrected

    Following days of rain and criticism over accessibility, Mayor Eric Adams on Monday night announced that the city wouldn’t be moving forward with its plan to temporarily house asylum seekers in tents at Orchard Beach in the Bronx.

    Instead, the tent facilities will be relocated to Randall’s Island, the mayor said in a press release.

    “This new location is less prone to flooding, is closer to public transportation, and will provide temporary respite to 500 asylum seekers,” Adams said in the release.
