Last week, Socialist U.S. Rep Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was brutalized in conservative media after she was caught posting staged photos of herself at a detention facility. AOC posted photos that made it look like she was crying in front of cages that were holding children. Her outrageous tweet also included accusations of children being stolen from their parents and placed in cages.
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.
More kids died after this. To date, no one has been held accountable.
We need to save these kids. https://t.co/HhdMqc5zML

AOC is well known for her histrionics and attention-seeking behavior. On Monday, the United States Congresswoman, who prides herself on her ability to connect with young people by acting like a teenager on social media, visited a detention center in El Paso, TX. Her report on what she saw inside the detention center was consistent with the type of exaggerated gossip you’d expect to find in the girls’ locker room of a high school.
After she left the facility Socialist Rep. Ocasio-Cortez told reporters, “No women should ever be separated from their children.” She also accused border officials of forcing women to drink from a toilet.
AOC also relayed that kids in the detention centers don’t speak English or Spanish. If they don’t speak English or Spanish, where are these kids coming from? It would appear that they’re certainly not coming from south of our border.
Last night, Jesse Watters filled in for Laura Ingraham on her Fox News Ingraham Angle show. Watters spoke with International Border Patrol Council VP Hector Garza, who accused Ocasio-Cortez of lying about what she witnessed in the detention center, and demanded that the US Customs and Border Protection agency release the video of Ocasio-Cortez at the El Paso border facility. Watters started his segment by saying that a lot of people don’t believe AOC’s claims, saying that last week, she accused the same people of running concentration camps, calling them “Nazis.”
U.S. Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX) called bullsh*t on AOC’s outrageous claims.

Breitbart News’ Brandon Darby, who’s spent the last several years reporting on the situation on our US border, posted an actual photo of children in migrant detention centers while Barack Obama was the president.
