When the story broke that Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez reported horrid conditions and evil men during her border patrol facilities visit, my first emotion was confusion. Surely they were smart enough to be on their best behavior in front of the woman who wants to eliminate their livelihood and throw America into a pure open borders situation in which sovereignty is tossed out the window.
Then, the contradictions started popping up. Questions were asked. Statements were debunked. Could a sitting member of Congress flat-out lie about her experience simply to promote her narrative and push her agenda?
The answer, it seems, is “yes.”
Just left the 1st CBP facility.
I see why CBP officers were being so physically &sexually threatening towards me.
Officers were keeping women in cells w/ no water & had told them to drink out of the toilets.
This was them on their GOOD behavior in front of members of Congress.

But reports from witnesses to her visit tell a very different story.
“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.
“The agents, they wanted to respond, but they held back because she’s a congressional delegate. But when you have someone yelling at you in a threatening manner … ” the same person said. “They were like, ‘Hey, you need to kinda step back.’”
A second official said she went in and out of the cell during the group’s briefing nearby and returned to the group several times to share information she had learned from detainees, including that one person had drunk from a toilet.
The congresswoman told the group she would not go with the 13 other House Democrats on the tour of the facility and stayed with the family.
One important note about people being “forced to drink out of toilets.” This is absolutely ludicrous. The facilities have potable water units attached to the toilet mechanisms. This is standard in holding facilities like these across the country. They’re designed to allow people to drink fresh water. If there needs to be more clear instructions on how to use the sink, then so be it. But nobody is being forced to drink out of toilets.
Despite being in the presence of 14 other representatives and staff members, AOC’s account is unique. Is she just such a sharp observer and investigator that she came out with new information nobody else noticed? Or could it be she went in with an agenda?
Perhaps Sebastian Gorka said it best:
“Ocasio-Cortez is just a liar, and she doesn’t care who she hurts.” Sebastian Gorka
I don’t normally call BS on people without clear evidence, but everything about AOC’s border patrol story seems contrived, exaggerated, or outright untruthful. The wise will record her any time she visits or risk being smeared.
