Border Facility Officials Claim AOC Was ‘Screaming and Yelling’ at Agents and Refused to Finish Tour

Freshman firebrand Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) allegedly screamed “in a threatening manner” at U.S. Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) agents during a visit to a migrant holding facility, the Washington Examiner reported.

In a report published Monday, two witnesses of the event alleged that Ocasio-Cortez yelled at CBP agents while visiting the migrant holding facility in El Paso, Texas, with 13 other House Democrat lawmakers and aides.

While the other lawmakers were being briefed on facility operations at the start of the tour, Ocasio-Cortez broke away to sit with a migrant family in a nearby holding cell. She allegedly returned “screaming” at the CBP agents in front of approximately 40 people, according to one witness.

“She comes out screaming at our agents, right at the beginning [of the tour] […]. Crying and screaming and yelling,” said the witness. “The agents, they wanted to respond, but they held back because she’s a congressional delegate.”

The agents added, “But when you have someone yelling at you in a threatening manner […], they were like, ‘Hey, you need to kinda step back.’”

A second official told the Examiner that Ocasio-Cortez would enter and exit the holding areas and relay things she learned from the migrants back to the others on the tour, such as how one drank water from a toilet

A second official also said that the New York congresswoman made comments about the recently-brought-to-light unofficial Border Patrol Facebook page made known on Monday.

“Something under her breath, ‘Oh, all these guys in here are gonna f**k me.’ The agents are standing there behind the computers. One of the agents laughed at something he was saying to another agent, and she got irate and flipped out,” the second Border Patrol official told the Examiner. “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 freshman Democrat recounted the story differently in a tweet posted after the tour.

Ocasio-Cortez said that she would stay with the family in the holding area and not continue on the tour of the facility.

The congresswoman also appeared to respond to the report on Twitter, posting a tweet claiming that her phone was “confiscated” by CBP agents that she had “exposed their inhumane behavior.”

One agent on the scene said that the congresswoman’s claim that a migrant drank from a toilet was misrepresented, explaining that the migrant who did “didn’t know how to use the faucet in the cell” and “never told AOC” that the agents made her drink from the toilet.

She has proven time and again that she is a liar and demagogue, ready to use any underhanded, dirty tactic to TRY to denigrate the President and his administration. What she in fact really does, however, is show (time and again) that she’s nothing more than a piece of sh*t!!

when AOC visits her constituents someday, maybe they can have a toothpaste and soap fundraiser. a woman with no idea what a faucet is, isn’t that lovely. my dog drinks out of the toilet but she’s a dog. hundreds of thousands of illegals that are stupid like her,send them all back.

Just curious AOC, toothpaste and soap are pretty cheap. Did you take some to hand out to these poor people? I don’t make a Congresswoman’s salary but I’m pretty sure I could scrape up enough for maybe 100 tubes of toothpaste and 400 bars of soap. Did you try to remedy any “suffering” or get back in your air-conditioned car and start typing. In fact, if you get the word out to the right people (providing it’s the truth) I’m sure we can have soap and toothpaste there shortly.

AOC lacks the intelligence, the mentality or the composure expected of an adult to be in Congress. Even though she may want to mimic Hillary Clinton’s obscene actions, that in no way excuses her childish behavior towards adults trying to do a difficult job she wouldn’t do. She needs to resign from Congress; go home and grow up until such time she reaches adulthood.
