Daily Mail published this video item, entitled “‘You are right, brother’: Protester shouts at VP Kamala Harris during ‘Build Back Better’ speech” – below is their description.

She was discussing President Joe Biden’s Build Back Better agenda and its impact on climate change when the heckler, 23-year-old Jose Vega, pointed out that earlier action could have possibly mitigated the devastating effects of flash floods the city saw during Hurricane Ida. He confirmed his identity to DailyMail.com, and said: ‘People aren’t drowning because of global warming in Queens. They are drowning because of illegal apartments in Queens.’ Also in attendance at Harris’ speech were prominent New York Democrats Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Mayor Bill De Blasio and Governor Kathy Hochul.
