Americans have incredible freedoms, privileges, rights…and none of them so significant as free elections to positions of authority.
Apparently buckling under the sheer weight of liberty, people in New York thought it would be a good idea to elect a socialist bartender to the House of Representatives.
The result? Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez believes she is the absolute authority on every issue facing our great nation, and thank God…we need truth from our elected officials! She dove head first into illegal immigration to show America, Trump, and the patriarchy what’s what.
Truth is a funny concept from a “socialist” though, isn’t it?
Take a look at “AOC” revealing the despicable conditions of a U.S. Customs and Border Protections facility she toured recently:
Ocasio-Cortez on her CBP facility tour: “These women were being told by CBP officers to drink out of the toilet. They were drinking water out of the toilet”
Reporter: “Did you see somebody actually do that?”

No questions? Oh, ok.
Now I’ve seen the inside of these facilities.
It’s not just the kids. It’s everyone. 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.

“Everyone is drinking from toilets.”
“CBP officers are laughing in front of congressional representatives.”
Naturally, we should turn the focus from political posturing to those responsible for conditions at the border. So responsible media did just that. Daily Wire contributor Ryan Saavedrea writes:
“Multiple CBP officials, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, told the Washington Examiner and the Daily Mail how Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) acted inside the facility and say that she distorted the entire situation.
A border agent who was there told the Examiner: ‘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. 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.’
Daily Mail editor David Martosko tweeted out a photo from inside a CBP detention center that showed a toilet that was connected to a sink that states: ‘potable water.’
Daily Mail reported: “But a CBP official said Monday in the early evening that plumbing fixtures at the locations Ocasio-Cortez visited are standard-issue jail appliances with sinks that dispense safe drinking water attached to toilets in a single unit.”
‘Of course that’s what we have,’ a CBP official told the Daily Mail. ‘No one is drinking toilet water. They’re drinking potable water from the sink attached to the toilet. It’s what you would find in every municipal jail in the United States.'”
The aforementioned photo:
I haven't seen photo of the Clint, TX facilities that @AOC described 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). pic.twitter.com/uDbhy1GPOa

But wait, there’s more.
Not only have CBP officers categorically denied AOC’s allegations, so have a group of pastors from the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference.
Concerned with the inflammatory reports being spread, President of the NHCLC, Reverend Samuel Rodriguez visited the same facility.
His reports were a slightly different version of the truth. Caleb Parke with Fox News:
“’I read the reports, saw the news clips. I just wanted to see what was actually happening in order to better enable our efforts to find a fair and a just solution to our broken immigration system,’ Rodriguez, who has advised President Trump and both Presidents Barack Obama and George W. Bush on immigration reform, noted. ‘To my surprise, I saw something drastically different from the stories I’ve been hearing in our national discourse. Even as a veteran of immigration advocacy in the U.S., I was shocked at the misinformation of the crisis at the border.'”
“’We found no soiled diapers, no deplorable conditions and no lack of basic necessities,’ Rodriguez remarked, adding he specifically asked border agents if they staged the facility in response to the negative press. ‘They unequivocally denied it — we were witnessing the identical conditions the attorneys saw when they toured the facility days earlier.'”
Well, you know what they say; One person’s complete situational misinterpretation and self aggrandizing agenda is another person’s complete obfuscation of the truth.
Reason prevailed on Twitter:
We may all be used to AOC saying very stupid things, but lying about Border Patrol to make them sound like heartless monsters who make women drink out of toilets-
is a horrific and reckless slander, and she should be held accountable for it

A plan to resolve it all even emerged…I just wish I knew why it sounded familiar:
Does @AOC know that if we built a wall, you wouldn’t need detention centers?

Here’s hoping New Yorkers primary Ocasio-Cortez back to the bar…we all need a drink after this one.
