Source: Ocasio Screamed At Border Agents ‘In A Threatening Manner’ During Visit



Democratic Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is not only a stone-cold liar… she’s a despicable excuse for a human being. Nothing demonstrates that more than the propagandic and dishonest way she (sort-of) toured immigrant detention facilities in Texas on Monday. Not only did she misrepresent the conditions there… she got into it with Border Patrol agents and screamed at them in a threatening manner to boot. Disgraceful. Who the bloody heck does she think she is?

Examiner reporter Anna Giaritelli tweeted Monday that Ocasio-Cortez “screamed at law enforcement agents ‘in a threatening manner'” during her visit with other members of the House of Representatives. Ocasio-Cortez denies it but there were a ton of witnesses and given her actions and personality, I absolutely believe it.

From TheBlaze:

“Ocasio-Cortez’s own description of her visit, while not addressing whether or not any screaming occurred, painted a picture of tensions with Customs and Border Protection agents over their behavior and treatment of detainees.

“Just left the 1st CBP facility,” Ocasio-Cortez wrote on Twitter. “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.”

“The freshman Democrat also recounted a conversation she had with one of the detainees after she “forced” her way into a cell.

“After I forced myself into a cell w/ women & 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. Tell me what about that is due to a ‘lack of funding?’

“Now I’m on my way to Clint, where the Trump admin was denying children toothpaste and soap,” she continued. “This has been horrifying so far. It is hard to understate the enormity of the problem. We’re talking systemic cruelty w/ a dehumanizing culture that treats them like animals.”

“Ocasio-Cortez’s visit to facilities in El Paso and Clint, Texas, included more than a dozen other representatives and was organized by the Congressional Hispanic Caucus.”

The toilets she is speaking of are connected to drinking fountains that use potable water to save space. It’s the same system used in other detention centers to cut down on costs, etc. They are not drinking from the toilets and she knows it. Clean drinking water is dispensed above the toilets. Ocasio-Cortez feigned anger and screamed at agents for forcing women and children to drink from toilets – it was all for show… for the cameras and it was all a lie.

Fox News reported this: “She comes out screaming at our agents, right at the beginning [of the tour] … Crying and screaming and yelling,” one witness said. “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 … They were like, ‘Hey, you need to kinda step back.’”

Ocasio-Cortez lashed out on Twitter: “To these CBP officers saying they felt ‘threatened’ by me – They were literally discussing making a GoFundMe for an officer who attacked my on my tour.” She added: “They confiscated my phone, and they were all armed. I’m 5’4”. They’re just upset I exposed their inhumane behavior.” Bull freaking crap. She was not singled out to have her phone confiscated – that is standard protocol and of course, they are armed.

The Examiner report also said that Ocasio-Cortez refused to even tour the facility, choosing to stay with a family in a holding area instead. Probably to pose for the cameras. The freshman rep previously tweeted about her visit to border facilities, writing that people of all ages were being mistreated and were “drinking out of toilets” as the guards laughed at the migrants’ plight right in front of her.

More from Fox News:

“Brian Hastings, deputy chief of Border Patrol, denied Ocasio-Cortez’s allegations during an interview on “The Story.” He unequivocally stated fresh drinking water is provided to people in custody.

“Earlier Monday, the congresswoman accused CBP of having a “violent culture” after a report from ProPublica surfaced about a secret Facebook group where Border Patrol agents allegedly posted graphic and vulgar jokes about the Democratic lawmaker as well as illegal immigrants.

“Some of the posts were graphic, doctored images of Ocasio-Cortez, including one that shows a smiling President Trump forcing her head toward his crotch. Other comments refer to Ocasio-Cortez and Rep. Veronica Escobar, D-Texas, as “hoes,” and one member encouraged agents to throw a “burrito at these b——.”

“Ocasio-Cortez said she wasn’t surprised by the posts, especially after the treatment of migrants she said she witnessed at the facility. “It’s just indicative of the violent culture that we saw,” she said.

“The purported posts were slammed by the head of Border Patrol on Monday as “completely inappropriate.”

“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 said. “Any employees found to have violated our standards of conduct will be held accountable.”‘

First off, I would need to see the posts to believe them – I wouldn’t take anything on Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s or ProPublica’s word – they are communists. If agents were behaving that way on Facebook they should be reprimanded but honestly, I’m not sure you can blame them much on it after the abuse they have taken from those on the left… especially Ocasio-Cortez. Just my two cents on the matter. It doesn’t make it right but it does make it understandable.

The border is no place for political grandstanding and Ocasio-Cortez is using those people as props to push Marxism. She is thin-skinned, uninformed, vicious, dishonest, and frankly moronic.

From The Washington Examiner:

“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.

“A second official said that while she was around agents, Ocasio-Cortez commented at another point about an unofficial Border Patrol Facebook page that was exposed earlier Monday for offensive content about those in custody and lawmakers, including the congresswoman.

“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 said. “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?’”’

All of this is happening during escalating tensions concerning illegal immigrants that has increased every month since January on the border. There have also been more than 100,000 encounters with illegal immigrants at the southern border in both March and April, setting the border crisis on track to be the worst it has been in a decade. And this woman is trying to make it even worse. What should not be allowed is behavior such as Ocasio-Cortez’s.

Joe Biden Claims Obama Admin Didn’t ‘Lock People Up in Cages’ – Here Are The Facts




* By

The left continues to spew propaganda. And of course, MSM doesn’t fact-check them.

Via Breitbart:

CLAIM: Former Vice President Joe Biden claimed, on immigration: “We didn’t lock people up in cages.”

VERDICT: FALSE. The “cages” were built by the Obama-Biden administration.

Univision moderator Jorge Ramos asked Biden at the third Democrat debate at Texas Southern University in Houston, Texas, why Latinos should trust him after the Obama administration continued deporting “undocumented immigrants.”

Biden claimed that the Obama administration’s policies were more humane than those of President Donald Trump: “We didn’t lock people up in cages,” he said.

In fact, the “cages” were built by the Obama administration to deal with a surge of unaccompanied minors who crossed the border illegally in 2014.

Originally, the Obama administration was “warehousing” children — literally — in overwhelmed Border Patrol facilities. Breitbart News broke the story of the surge, which was partly triggered by Obama’s policy of allowing illegal alien children who entered the country as minors to stay in the country (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA).

The above photo was published by the Associated Press in June 2014, and the photo below is of Obama’s Secretary of Homeland Security, Jeh Johnson, touring a Border Patrol facility with “cages.”

The “cages” are chain-link enclosures in Border Patrol processing facilities that are meant to protect children from adults in custody. They are not permanent accommodations.

In mid-2018, as the Trump administration began enforcing a “zero tolerance” policy that stopped the “catch-and-release” policy of letting illegal aliens go after they were arrested. Detaining adults and children meant that children had to be processed separately; the enclosures prevented adults from harming children.

As Breitbart News reported at the time, children were not housed in “cages.” They were processed and then taken to shelters, where they were given medical care, toiletries, education, recreation, and counseling, and where staff attempted to find relatives or sponsors to whom they could be released.

Democrats began tweeting images of “kids in cages” to condemn the Trump administration. Journalists, too, shared those images.

One problem: they were taken during the Obama administration.

Public outrage at the images led President Trump to end the policy, and require families to be detained together. Continue Reading
