AOC Says Migrants Forced To Drink Toilet Water After Tense Visit

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez claims that Border Patrol agents are forcing migrants to drink out of toilets along with other extreme conditions.

What We Know: 

  • After leaving a US Customs and Border Protection facility in Texas, Ocasio-Cortez tweeted Monday “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.”
  • She along with other congressional Democrats are visiting some migrant detention centers along the southern border following reports of terrible conditions and repeated sexual assaults.
  • When she went inside the female cells to ask them directly about conditions, she tweeted that “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?'”
  • 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.
  • Ocasio-Cortez has also apparently been receiving threats from other CBP officers, 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,’” she tweeted. “This is a violent culture.​”​

Something has to be done immediately.
