AOC heckled in fiery town hall: 'all you care about is illegal aliens and their votes' | 24 Feb 2024 | A town hall hosted by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y. touting the apparent benefits of the Green New Deal ended up turning some attendees red with anger on Thursday. The socialist lawmaker was speaking at an event in Queens in New York City where she was heckled by two attendees who accused her of caring more about illegal immigrants than those whom she was elected to represent. One of the hecklers, Jonathan David Rinaldi, said he is challenging Ocasio-Cortez for her congressional seat. "My name is Jonathan David Rinaldi and I'm running for Congress against AOC. The Green New Deal is a scam," Rinaldi shouted as Ocasio-Cortez was championing environmental justice provisions and climate change policies under the deal. "Secure the border now," the man barked at Ocasio-Cortez while waving his finger at her. "You haven't said one word about violent Venezuelan migrants, illegals." "You don't care, all you care about is illegal aliens and their votes. You don’t care about your constituents."
