AOC Has Meltdown At Border Patrol Facility, Says She Wasn't Safe From Officers

U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez flipped and screamed at border patrol agents during a tour of an El Paso facility.

Washington, DC – U.S. Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-New York) threw a fit and screamed at Customs and Border Protection (CBP) personnel during her tour of the Border Patrol facility in El Paso, Texas on Monday.

Afterwards, Ocasio-Cortez’s chief of staff, Saikat Chakrabarti, defended the freshman congresswoman’s behavior and tried to paint the controversial former bartender as brave for having even visited the facilities, The Washington Post reported.

“Imagine all your hateful trolls online, but with guns.Imagine walking into a fenced area full of them. No exit. You don’t get to take any cameras or phones with you. And those trolls with guns? They’re the ones in charge of protecting you. That’s what AOC faced today,” Chakrabarti tweeted.

Ocasio-Cortez was one of 14 House Democrats who visited the El Paso Station on Hondo Pass Drive at about 11 a.m. on July 1, the Washington Examiner reported.

Shortly after the delegation arrived, as they were being briefed inside a holding area, witnesses said Ocasio-Cortez suddenly flipped.

“She comes out screaming at our agents, right at the beginning [of the tour],” a witness told the Washington Examiner. “Crying and screaming and yelling.”

He said the outburst happened in front of about 40 other people and that Ocasio-Cortez behaved in a threatening manner toward Border Patrol agents in the facility.

“The agents, they wanted to respond, but they held back because she’s a congressional delegate,” the witness said. “But when you have someone yelling at you in a threatening manner… They were like, ‘Hey, you need to kinda step back.’”

Rather than staying with the group and listening to the presentation, Ocasio-Cortez kept wandering off to talk with detainees in other cells.

Another witness told the Washington Examiner that the young congresswoman kept returning to the group and interrupting them to share info she had learned from detainees, including that one woman claimed to have drunk from a toilet.

She was also quick to erroneously tweet about how the woman was doing so because the Border Patrol made her do it.

“Now I’ve seen the inside of these facilities. It’s not just the kids. It’s everyone,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted. “People drinking out of toilets, officers laughing in front of members Congress. I brought it up to their superiors. They said 'officers are under stress & act out sometimes.' No accountability.”

“Just left the 1st CBP facility. I see why CBP officers were being so physically &sexually threatening towards me,” she continued. “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 a border patrol agent who was there told the Washington Examiner that the entire scenario was being mischaracterized.

“So this is what happened with the migrant and drinking water from toilet: she wanted water, didn’t know how to use the faucet in the cell, and drank from the toilet,” the agent explained. “She never told AOC that we made her drink from the toilet. AOC, of course, changed it… This was when she [the migrant] was apprehended and brought into the facility.”

After her meltdown, Ocasio-Cortez refused to tour the facility with the rest of the delegation and instead stayed behind to visit with detainees in the holding area, the Washington Examiner reported.

A spokeswoman from Ocasio-Cortez’s office disputed the witness accounts of the congresswoman’s behavior as an “inaccurate depiction of events” in a statement, The Washington Post reported.

“The Congresswoman spoke sternly to a CBP agent that tried to take a stealth selfie with the Congresswoman in a mocking manner, despite the gravity of the situation,” the statement said.

Ocasio-Cortez told reporters later in the day that she was “not safe from the officers in the facility,” The Washington Post reported.

She also made much of a newly-reported private Facebook group that purportedly contained sexist, derogatory, and generally inappropriate remarks about illegal immigrants in custody.

The group is made up of former and current border patrol agents plus civilians, and is not representative of CBP, officials said.

"These posts are completely inappropriate and contrary to the honor and integrity I see — and expect — from our agents day in and day out," Border Patrol Chief Carla Provost told FOX News. "Any employees found to have violated our standards of conduct will be held accountable."

Funny how her (AOC's) first concern was the toilet condition. Maybe it was from her familiarity from her previous employment. And, hopefully, her future employment, too.

So a congresswoman has trouble following the rules set forth while touring a CBP facility, which apply to ALL people in the facility... screams at officers who are doing their job... modifies stories she is told to make things sounds horrible (without even getting the rest of the facts).. and HOW DARE AN OFFICER LAUGH IN FRONT OF A MEMBER OF CONGRESS!!!! That should be a terminatable offense.

Maybe after she's spent some time in her safe space because she was massively triggered, and has grown up a little bit, she can come back to the adult table and act like an adult.

She has to have someone wake her up, get her bathed, fed, get dressed, etc. She's not capable of taking care of herself less telling border services how to do their job. She's an embarrassment to this country... I wish Fallon & Colbert would use her in their monologues instead of Trump... They'd have so much more to work with . They've been picking on Pres. Trump since elected. Time to change the victims they prey on....

How many illegal aliens did she take back home with her? How could she just leave them there when I'm sure she has a nice home & could host 20-30 or so if she really cared so much.

These agents know her reputation, and would of had their game face on in her presence. I call BS on them treating her poorly and acting out. LEO’s are professionals with integrity, unlike her.

If she had a meltdown, then it is probably because she is angry about the concentration camps. They are causing shame to my country.

She had this planned from the very beginning I guarantee you. She went into the facility with the plan to find anything that she could throw her temper tantrum over. She was too much of a coward to actually tour the facility and find out that all of her preconceived ideas were wrong. She is afraid of the truth and instead choses to live in a fantasy world where she get to be the hero. The people who elected her into officer should be ashamed of themselves. She is a disgrace to herself, her parents, her city and mostly this country. She will be a one term wonder in the House and then go back to being a bartender that is if someone with hire her.

This mindless Twit continues to embarrass herself, but she’s too stoopid to even realize that fact. Reverend Rodriguez was there at the same time & stated clearly, what she said, was as if she was in a “parallel universe.” B/C he saw “absolutely nothing like what she described. Not even close.” The DemonRats are so deluded, they just spew Lies at every parting of their lips. Regardless of the subject matter. THEY are the ones responsible for this crisis, THEY Refused to act on & vote against funds to help them out. Now, THEY blame the best president we’ve ever had, in getting things done! So refreshing to have someone in the WH who actually CARES about America & Americans, B/C he LOVES OUR Country! Keep up the Great work under constant Fire, Mr. President!

Hispanic and colored children separated from their parents because they are illegal or immigrants and kept in camps under strict lock and key by armed white men. Somethings never change, I guess. Who knows what kind of horror those devil's are subjecting those children to? Glad the honorable Ms. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez can hopefully balance things out and bring attention to the subject. I believe in immigrant control and enforcement, but this separating children and parents and holding them in camps? That is disgusting and disgraceful. These whites can be truly soulless and deliberately diabolical. Only Americans can come up with a ethnic interment plan and execute it so efficiently, just like the Nazis. Somewhere out there someone is looking at these camps saying 'Seig Heil' knowing Hitler would be proud.

They asked her if she could speak a little clearer. She said she doesn't speak that language.

I'm guessing she put her bartending skills to use before entering the facility. She acted as a drunk lunatic. Of course she is going to fabricate and impune the integrity of the CBP. That is what she does.

It's the Democrats fault that these cells are so overcrowded. Their stall tactics and prevention from allowing funding for border protection and the 'wall' has caused an influx of illegals to cross and be caught.

We need to fund the 'wall'. We need to give the CBP agents the money and support they need to do their jobs both safely and correctly. We need an expedited legal system when it comes to individuals claiming asylum. We need to deport some of these people expeditiously. This all needs to stop. The Dumocrats need to stop.

What would Jesus do? Torture people that flee pain and make them drink out of toilets.

Having prison guards acting unprofessionally and without oversight, that is troubling. I, like most peope, can imagine the behaviour of these guards when they are not being monitored.

Sexually threatening? I dare say there is not one ICE, CBP, or Border Patrol Agent who would fuck her with someone else's dick or mechanical device!

I do not recommend drinking out of a toilet, however technically and scientifically speaking, the water in the tank is far cleaner than most of the water sources in the countries they came from. In fact he water in a toilet tank (not the bowl) is considered an emergency supply of water by the Red Cross and most Emergency Management Agencies. Having said all of that, I think AOC lied about that and the illegals will not have to resort to this now or in the future.
