Yeah, that Brain Hastings guy does not exactly fill me with confidence that the Border Patrol is taking these allegations seriously. 

Courtesy of The Hill:

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) said Border Patrol agents were telling migrants in U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) facilities to drink out of toilets.

During a Monday visit to CBP facilities in Southern Texas, Ocasio-Cortez tweeted, “Just left the 1st CBP facility. 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 lawmaker was on a trip to visit migrant detention centers with more than a dozen other House members Monday, The Washington Post reported. The trip was organized by the Congressional Hispanic Caucus and it included stops in El Paso and Clint, Texas.

Ocasio-Cortez also shared that CBP officials said “officers are under stress & act out sometimes.”

She added, “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?’ “

Ocasio-Cortez said she was on the way to Clint on Monday afternoon after visiting facilities in El Paso, which she called “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.”

This was AOC’s response to agents saying that she was the on making THEM feel unsafe.

I have to say that if you do not want the facility you work at referred to as “concentration camps,” and don’t like being called “Nazis,” then perhaps you should not act like Nazis running concentration camps.

    This is because of belief in a saving god. This is an incorrect understanding. Because of that, there is separation, and from that view of nature one does not and cannot see correctly.

    I’d be willing to bet that Kellyanne Conway hasn’t dragged her skinny ass down there to see for herself what is going on.

      the official said, the facility has PRI$ON-$TYLE toilets where drinking water is dispensed from a fountain attached to the toilet as part of a single unit. “‘No one is drinking toilet water,” an official said. “They’re drinking potable water from the sink attached to the toilet.”

      Pence’s White House spokesperson denied reports – even from Fox News – that there was any emergency.

      “Vice President Pence’s abrupt decision Tuesday to abandon plans to fly to New Hampshire for an opioid event — and instead return to the White House — has prompted confusion and conflicting statements from members of his team, as administration officials refused to divulge the reason for the last-minute change,”

      To make matters worse, some on Twitter recklessly claimed the EU Security Council had been called in to a special meeting as all this was going on.

      The EU Security Council does not exist.

    About time others, other then Neto O’Rourke, get involved with this stain on the USA. BTw I have been to rallies in Ep and McCallen multiple times in the last two years, these people have been forgotten( until a few more elected officials and pres. candidates have gotten involved). But this is not a new problem at all… and it’s shameful, that even on the democratic side it’s taken a presidential election for more people to care.
