Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez claims Border Police agents are forcing migrants to drink out of toilets and live under other extreme conditions — while the officers sit back and laugh.
“I see why CBP officers were being so physically &sexually threatening towards me,” the congresswoman tweeted Monday after leaving a US Customs and Border Protection facility in Texas.
“Officers were keeping women in cells w/ no water & had told them to drink out of the toilets,” she said. “This was them on their GOOD behavior in front of members of Congress.”
The New York lawmaker was visiting a number of migrant detention centers scattered along the southern border on Monday with other congressional Democrats following reports of terrible conditions and repeated sexual assaults.
“Now I’ve seen the inside of these facilities,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted. “It’s not just the kids. It’s everyone. People drinking out of toilets, officers laughing in front of members Congress.”
She added, “I brought it up to their superiors. They said ‘officers are under stress & act out sometimes.’ No accountability.”
Ocasio-Cortez claimed that she “forced” herself into a cell with a group of female migrants and began speaking to them.
“One of them described their treatment at the hands of officers as ‘psychological warfare’ – waking them at odd hours for no reason, calling them wh*res, etc,” she said. “Tell me what about that is due to a ‘lack of funding?’”
The freshman legislator was planning to visit detention facilities in Clint — where the Trump administration “was denying children toothpaste and soap,” she said.
“This has been horrifying so far,” Ocasio–Cortez concluded. “It is hard to understate the enormity of the problem. We’re talking systemic cruelty w/ a dehumanizing culture that treats them like animals.”
A CBP official denied the toilet accusations on Monday, insisting that the locations Ocasio-Cortez visited have standard-issue jail-type appliances with sinks that dispense safe drinking water attached to toilets in a single unit.
“‘No one is drinking toilet water,” the official said. “They’re drinking potable water from the sink attached to the toilet.” It’s what you would find in every municipal jail in the United States.”
Ocasio-Cortez has accused CBP agents of making threats to her life on social media — saying a “secret Facebook group” of 9,500 officers discussed making a GoFundMe to harm her and the other Dems during their visits Monday.
“This isn’t about ’a few bad eggs,’” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted early Monday afternoon. “This is a violent culture.”
Rep. Judy Chu, of California, was among the congressional leaders who visited the centers with Ocasio-Cortez and also recounted what she saw on Twitter.
“‘If you want water, just drink from a toilet.’ That’s what border patrol told one thirsty woman we met on today’s #DemsAtTheBorder trip,” Chu tweeted, along with a video in which she described the conditions.
“What we saw was appalling and disgusting,” the congresswoman said. “There seriously has to be some changes.”
Monday’s border visit was met with outrage from local Trump supporters, who were caught on video heckling the Democratic lawmakers in both English and Spanish as they attempted to hold a press conference.
“Go take care of your country!” shouted one man, who repeatedly yelled “Trump 2020” with several others.
“You guys are retarded!” he added. “Cry me a river!”
Ocasio-Cortez, who spoke at the presser, got told to “go back to New York City” at one point.
“Nobody wants you here!” a heckler screamed.
“Did you bring your onion?!” another asked, blasting Ocasio-Cortez for shedding “fake tears.”
Videos from the presser were posted online by the Congressional Hispanic Caucus. Attempts to reach the group were not immediately successful.
What a load of grand standing. What is worse… 90% of the public believes this nonsense.
We should be greatful that these are our demonic enemies.
They are all totally inept and absurd. And it shows to the average person that doesn’t follow current events that closely.
Trump needs to deport this cunt back to Retardland or wherever the fuck she came from.
This divisive politician has NO IDEA what’s is going happening along the southern border of the US!
Remember her outrage over an empty parking lot!
AOC making this outrageous claim is just pandering to the woke, far-left audience whilst stirring up anger against the detention centers (or concentration camps by AOC herself)!
Retardation levels through the roof!
AOC needs to be removed from office.
AOC is a complete shihead who cares more about being a professional victim and eternally offended than she does about her own district. Fuck AOC.
Too bad her district in NYC probably doesn’t speak English well enough to read all of the headlines.
“People drinking out of toilets” What a lying POS. They just want more of their racial kin in the country to get more power.
Go easy on the moron:
She meant the toilet water tank not the toilet bowl.

AOC says migrants forced to drink toilet water after tense border visit

Question for Diarrhea Mouth Pelosi: Will humanitarian aid for migrants pay for dippers?
Not that my comment means a whole lot to anyone but it sure seems like this democrat AOC is describing a crisis at the southern border and a very bad one wouldn’t you agree citizens?
That is quite a contrast from the empty parking lot and ‘nothing to see here’ videos of Acosta and others shooting their ‘proof’ videos so who do we believe? The mouth with no video or the video?
Jury is still out I guess! Without video proof your words are meaningless to Americans’ AOC we don’t trust you or your word! Nothing personal, it’s how we feel about all democrats!
To Sleep: Consider this:
She’s such a fucking liar. I had some idiot friend tell me the other night that Trump is making immigrant children drink toilet water and how evil this is. I had to explain to him that it’s all just political rhetoric and that those kids didn’t matter until it became politically expedient for them to matter. I never felt so alone as I gulped my beer.
A reporter should ask her where the water they drank came from before they crossed our border illegally.
It wasnt as clean as the water in the toilet I’ll bet.
Who the hell would want to get sexual with that troglodyte?
Of course he is! I mean, being in charge of the both the top economy and military in the world isn’t time consuming at all! He’s spending most of his time standing there in front of every impoverished child being used for virtue signaling b.s., saying “drink this or get out!”.
AOC is about as smart as the lady that drank toilet water.
AOC refuses to fund the detention camps so she can complain about the conditions. Then she argues that the Nazi-like guards are making the illegals drink from a toilet even though the illegal always has access to the fountain which is part of the same fixture. Is she really that stupid or does she just think we are?
This cunt never shuts up…
