AOC says she confronted Border Patrol agent over 'stealth selfie'

"Imagine how they treat the women trapped inside", she said, adding that women had told her they had only been allowed to move inside the facility and shower after the group's visit was announced last week.

Her face is hidden to protect her identity and not undermine any potential immigration case.

Similarly, Washington Examiner also published a statement from a border agent who denied the claims made by Ocasio-Cortez. "It was ugly in there".

The sexist posts published by ProPublica came in response to Monday's visit by members of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, including Democrats Ocasio-Cortez of NY and Veronica Escobar of Texas, who toured a Border Patrol facility near El Paso, where attorneys said they had found migrant children living in fetid, filthy conditions.

In the video, the girl recounts details of being held at the facility, to Alison Griffith, an attorney at The Advocates for Human Rights. "They were like, 'Hey, you need to kinda step back'".

"They slept on just the floor, they would only give us one blanket".

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) is criticizing "a violent culture" within U.S. Customs & Border Protection after an alleged secret Facebook group was exposed in a new report. One member encouraged agents to throw burritos at them during a facility tour Monday.

"We lucked out with some overcast", said U.S. Sen.

"The agents found to be responsible for these vile comments should no longer have the privilege of representing the United States of America in uniform", he said in a statement. And that's them knowing a congressional visit was coming.

During the visit, Ocasio-Cortez posted various claims about what she had seen and heard inside the facility.

"They should be given water".

Both comments drew sharp criticism.

Ocasio-Cortez hasn't responded to Lahren's jibes, but has continued to speak out about the "inhumane behavior" she says she experienced.

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.

The story generated widespread revulsion on social media, with more than a dozen members of Congress expressing horror and disgust at the posts. "All of them separated from their families".

Congressman Joe Kennedy III told Vice that after seeing so many terrible things, the whole situation was going "off the rails". USA border officers apprehended almost 99,000 people crossing the U.S. southern border in April, the highest monthly figure since 2007.

Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has not responded to the politicians' comments. At the Central Processing Center in McAllen, Texas, Cruz related how roughly 50 percent of the adult men crossing into the Rio Grande sector have a child with them.

"The problems with the 10-15 page have been going on for years", said one current Border Patrol agent who asked to remain anonymous for fear of retribution.

CBP announced the matter was turned over to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security's Office of Inspector General to investigate.

Levy said she helped reunite the 12-year-old girl and her sister with their mother.

"I'm very confident that we are meeting, and most of the time, exceeding these standards", the CBP official said.

"I'm so hungry that I have woken up in the middle of the night with hunger". More than 50 women were crammed in one cell created to hold 40 male juveniles when investigators visited in June.

Chu and Rep. Joaquin Castro also said one woman suffering from epilepsy had not been given access to her medication. They cried for their aunt.
