The controversial Dem Representative was criticized both by acting and former US officials for “intentionally misinforming the American public”, as well as by a group of pastors who traveled to border detention facilities to get a first-hand account of conditions.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the New York Democratic Representative, is under attack from many sides for her reports regarding allegedly inhumane conditions in Customs and Border Protection detention facilities, a Fox News report says.
After her visit to the facilities, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez posted a number of tweets alleging that CBP agents were “physically & sexually threatening” towards her, confiscated her phone and were all armed, despite the Representative being 5’4”, alleging that CBP agents were “upset [she] exposed their inhumane behaviour.”
Ocasio-Cortez said the agents forced women to drink out of the toilets in front of the members of the Congress, alleging that was the agent’s “good” behaviour and implying that, without visitors, the detained illegal immigrants are subject to even worse treatment.
CBP agents said that the lawmaker was acting aggressively at them.
