New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez made a spectacle of herself when she visited a migrant facility this week.
The latter claim was directly contradicted by one of her own fellow Democrat Congresswomen who said she did not see that.
But one of the most disturbing things to come from her visit on Monday was accusations that she threatened Border Patrol agents, The Washington Examiner reported.
“She comes out screaming at our agents, right at the beginning [of the tour] … Crying and screaming and yelling,” a witness said.
“The agents, they wanted to respond, but they held back because she’s a congressional delegate. But when you have someone yelling at you in a threatening manner … ”
“They were like, ‘Hey, you need to kinda step back,’” the same witness said in an interview with The Examiner.
“Something under her breath, ‘Oh, all these guys in here are gonna f–k me.’ The agents are standing there behind the computers.
“One of the agents laughed at something he was saying to another agent, and she got irate and flipped out,” another Border official said.
“Now they’re under investigation for it. She took it as they were laughing at her and screams at them and says, ‘What’s so funny?’” they said.
Rep. Ocasio-Cortez took to her favorite medium, Twitter, to fight back against the reports but her argument is not believable.
“To these CBP officers saying they felt ‘threatened’ by me – They were literally discussing making a GoFundMe for an officer who attacked my on my tour [sic],” she said.
“They’re just upset I exposed their inhumane behavior,” she said. They confiscated my phone, and they were all armed. I’m 5’4”.
And to these CBP officers saying they felt “threatened” by me –

Here’s another photo from inside taken by @JoaquinCastrotx, where we’re trying to comfort women trapped in cells.
This woman was telling me about her daughters who were taken from her – she doesn’t know where they’ve taken them.
We held & listened to them. They were distraught.30.2K2:43 AM – Jul 2, 201913.5K people are talking about thisTwitter Ads info and privacy
