Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was accused of screaming at Border Patrol agents and accusing them of some of the most heinous acts. She claimed they “physically and sexually threatened her,” along with alledging they ordered a detained migrant to drink out of a toilet. Well, the president of the Border Patrol has heard enough of her “falsehoods,” and he just fired back at AOC. Don’t miss this.
The 29-year-old Congresswoman from New York made a huge mistake yesterday when she reported salacious allegations about Border Patrol agents. AOC’s immaturity and her lack of control may cost her the seat she holds in Congress. That’s how serious this situation has become.
It all started yesterday at the Southern border. Thirteen Democrats including Ocasio-Cortez traveled to the Southern border to tour detention centers. Immediately, AOC became combative toward the Border Patrol agents with reports she was screaming and yelling.
“She comes out screaming at our agents, right at the beginning [of the tour] … Crying and screaming and yelling,” said one witness who said he was stunned by the outburst in front of approximately 40 people.
A witness who was at the facility described Ocasio-Cortez’s behavior toward CBP officials as being “threatening,” saying that she was “crying and screaming and yelling,” the Daily Wire reports.
A second CBP official described one of Ocasio-Cortez’s outbursts, telling the Examiner that the 29-year-old said, “Oh, all these guys in here are gonna f*ck me.”
“The agents are standing there behind the computers,” the official continued. “One of the agents laughed at something he was saying to another agent, and she got irate and flipped out. Now they’re under investigation for it. She took it as they were laughing at her and screams at them and says, ‘What’s so funny?'”
The Washington Examiner specifically disputed Ocasio-Cortez’s claims about a woman, or women, being forced to drink from a toilet.
“Ocasio-Cortez repeatedly claimed without evidence that CBP officials told detained female migrants to drink from the toilet while Ocasio-Cortez was present. Then, when pressed by a reporter if she actually heard a CBP official say that, Ocasio-Cortez refused to answer,” the Daily Wire added.
After accusing the CBP of refusing to furnish detainees with soap or shampoo, Ocasio-Cortez tripped up when she revealed a packet of shampoo a detainee gave her. “CBP made us check our phones. But one woman slipped me this packet to take with me. It says ‘shampoo,’ but she told me that this is all they give women to wash their entire body,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted.
It should be noted that AOC voted against the bill to fund the Border Patrol and yet she complains about soap and shampoo. Many agents donate diapers and toiletries out of their own pocket since the budget is overwhelmed.

It says “shampoo,” but she told me that this is all they give women to wash their entire body. Nothing else.

Well, the president of the Border Patrol was livid about these unfounded allegations, and rightly so.
CBP President Brandon Judd gave an exclusive interview to Breitbart, and he set the record straight. In fact, Judd is so hot over this farce, he wants to make sure AOC is exposed.
He said that the cameras that film the facilities would show that Ocasio-Cortez was lying: “I’m calling on CBP to release that footage so they clearly show that she was treated with the utmost dignity and respect,” Judd said.
“Nobody is forced to drink out of a toilet and nobody is told to drink out of a toilet,” Judd explained. “Its completely and totally a baseless and ridiculous allegation and frankly it needs to be investigated and she needs to be exposed.”
During the interview with Breitbart News Tonight, Judd mentioned a previous statement by Ocasio-Cortez in which she stated that she would rather be morally correct than factually accurate.
Judd disagreed. “How can you have the moral high ground if you are going to throw facts out the window and spew falsehoods?” he asked. “And that’s what she is doing.”
He continued, “She gives absolutely no contexts to these allegations that she is making and by not giving context she is trying to paint a false narrative and a false picture and she needs to be held accountable for that.”
When asked about Ocasio-Cortez’s claim that migrants were subjected to “psychological warfare” by agents who would wake them at odd hours and call them derogative names, Judd said, “Where is the proof? It’s very easy to throw out these allegations and say this is what’s happening.”
Judd continued: “Let the cameras speak …The cameras will prove her wrong and they will prove that she is being false.”
CBP has surveillance cameras operating 24/7 for the safety of the BP agents and detainees.
Is AOC so brainwashed that she actually believes Border Patrol agents are evil? It appears that is her game. The other option is to acknowledge the truth. These migrants volunteered to come to the Southern border, and no one is making them stay.
They are free to leave. They will not be allowed into the United States without a hearing, but they are free to head South and go home. AOC was elected to represent the citizens who reside in the New York Bronx, not the citizens of Guatemala, El Salvador, and Mexico.
