Yeah, It Looks Like Another Ocasio-Cortez Border Claim Got ‘Royally Busted’

Well, well, well…it was all one massive lie, wasn’t it?
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) reportedly threw
a tantrum at Border Patrol agents while visiting a facility in El
She said the agents didn’t make her safe, whatever the hell that means,
and that they were telling detained illegals to drink from the toilet.
Yeah, that claim was blown up in
about 30 seconds. The drinking fountains are connected to the toilets.
Democrats lie. AOC lied.
And they will do anything to try and stoke anger among
Hispanic voters toward this White House; Trump’s
support among Hispanics is
not too shabby, by the way.
I haven't seen photo of
the Clint, TX facilities that @AOCdescribed today, but it would be
interesting if "drinking from the toilet" meant drinking from an
attached sink marked "potable water" -- like this image from a CBP
holding facility in Tuscon (filed in federal court).
without evidence that CBP officers told women who were locked up in an
immigrant detention facility to "drink out of the toilets" while
"in front" of her and other Congress members
If it was true, why didn't AOC do something to help those poor women?
SCOOP: Rep. Alexandria
Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., screamed at federal law enforcement agents “in a
threatening manner” during a visit to a U.S. Border Patrol facility in El Paso,
Texas, Monday afternoon and refused to tour the facility, according to two
people who witnessed it.
So AOC didn’t actually
tour the facility, abused CBP workers. and made up a bunch of stuff which
sympathetic reporters are parroting without checking.
Great work, folks.
But should we be shocked that this blew up, folks?
the toilet claim is suspect since she refused to take a tour of the facility.
Second, this isn’t the first time one of her border visits was busted for being
Remember the pictures of her crying while touring
another detention facility in Tornillo, Texas last week?
Yeah, well those
photos are old…and they were mostly of a vacant lot.
Oh. yes, liberal
fact-checkers tried to discredit Grabien News, who noted this tidbit. They failed—and what’s more—they
proved them right [emphasis mine].
Before @AOC hit the national stage & was just a
fairly unknown House candidate frm NYC,she took time awy frm her campaign &
came dwn to #Tornillo

Ivan Pierre Aguirre recently posted pictures from AOC’s trip to the border last
year, which depict the congresswoman crying, presumably at the sight of nearby
migrant children being inhumanely detained.

“I’ll never forget this, because it was the moment I saw with my own eyes that
the America I love was becoming a nation that steals refugee children from
their parents,& caged them.”

We need to save these kids.”

actually claims they’ve debunked the report, but their investigation in fact
does the opposite. As
reported above, both the photographer who re-surfaced the photos as well as AOC
suggested the images depict her crying at the sight of nearby “caged” children.
Snopes spoke with the photographer, who confirms that’s not the case.
that the detention of immigrant children has become a major point of national
controversy, and that the obsession with Ocasio-Cortez among right-leaning
media outlets has been fairly constant since her surprise election to represent
New York’s 14th district in 2018, it’s perhaps no surprise that dissecting the
pictures for signs of alleged malfeasance became a new internet pastime.
pictures were ridiculed particularly as there was no sight of actual migrant
children during the protest,” Fox News reported.
no surprise, Aguirre told us. The roadway leading to the encampment was closed
off to news media and protesters. “Obviously,” he said, “there weren’t kids two
confirming Grabien News’ account, Aguirre
provided another photo depicting the roadway that leads to where the
housing facility is. The photo, below, makes clear there were no
children within eyeshot of the protesters.
Liberal fact-checkers are trash and Snopes is trash.
even more importantly, AOC’s lies on this subject are starting to run as the
southern border itself. As our friends at Twitchy put it, her lies on this
matter have been "royally busted."
