Photo: Ocasio-Cortez's 'Drinking Out of Toilets' Claim Drastically Falls Apart

Written By BlabberBuzz | Source: Breitbart | Tuesday, 02 July 2019 18:27
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) visited migrant shelters in the El Paso area Monday and adamantly claimed that women were instructed to “drink out of toilets.”

However, a recently surfaced photo shows what appears to be a basic detention center toilet unit with an attached sink and fountain, and an agent who was present at the time of the congresswoman’s visit added context to AOC’s remarks, casting doubts on her harrowing claims.

Ocasio-Cortez tweeted about her experience at the shelters Monday and made a number of distressing claims, accusing U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers of physically and sexually threatening her and claiming that migrants were instructed to drink out of toilets.

“Officers were keeping women in cells w/ no water & had told them to drink out of the toilets,” she tweeted. “This was them on their GOOD behavior in front of members of Congress”:

However, Ocasio-Cortez has failed to prove her worrying claim. She did not say she actually heard an officer instruct migrants to drink out of a toilet, and when asked if she actually witnessed the action firsthand, she rolled up a car window.

A photo has surfaced, showing a picture of the toilets commonly at migrant shelters “taken from court filings and other inspections of detention facilities,” according to Business Insider. They appear to be one whole unit– a toilet featuring a sink/fountain at the top.

Daily Mail’s David Martosko confronted Ocasio-Cortez over the photo on Twitter.

The New York lawmaker responded and confirmed this was the style toilet she saw in a cell. However, she claims the one she saw did not have a functioning sink, although many people are questioning her methods of attempting to get the water to flow.

“PUSH to open the water flow,” one Twitter user wrote, attaching a picture of the unit’s specs.

Martosko pointed out that Ocasio-Cortez was basing her claim on a story told by one of the migrants – not from an official. She, he argues, left out many key details, leading to confusion.

“Your tweets suggested you personally heard the guard tell them this today, but Rep. Chu said one of the women told you that story,” Martosko replied.

“Some reports suggest they were moved inside just today from outdoor tents, so it’s unclear how long they’d been in that cell. What did you witness?” he asked.

A CBP agent present at the time of Ocasio-Cortez’s visit added much-needed context to the lawmaker’s “drinking out of toilets” narrative.

“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,” the agent said, according to the Washington Examiner.

The agent reiterated that the woman never told the congresswoman that she was forced to drink out of the toilet bowl.

“She never told AOC that we made her drink from the toilet,” the agent added. “AOC, of course, changed it. This was when she [the migrant] was apprehended and brought into the facility.”

Brandon Judd, president of the National Border Patrol Council, spoke to Breitbart News’ Rebecca Mansour and Joel Pollak on Breitbart News Tonight on SiriusXM Monday and dismissed Ocasio-Cortez’s claims.

“Nobody is forced to drink out of a toilet and nobody is told to drink out of a toilet,” Judd said. “Its completely and totally a baseless and ridiculous allegation and frankly it needs to be investigated and she needs to be exposed.”

LIARS! Video Confirms AOC and Liberal Media Were Complicit in STAGED CRYING HOAX IN EMPTY PARKING LOT

Photos were released on Tuesday of Democrat Socialist leader Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez sobbing at a border entrance gate.

The horror of the experience moved her to tears. It was suggested that AOC was sobbing presumably at the sight of migrant children being inhumanely detained.

The sobbing Ocasio-Cortez was holding her hands over her face to hide her pain.

AOC posted the sad photos to her Twitter page.

However new photos show Ocasio-Cortez was crying in an empty lot. It was ALL STAGED!

Here’s another shot from the empty lot.

Hispanic Pastor Visited Same Border Facility as AOC, Conclude She’s Misinformed

This article was sourced from Political Insider

To be fair, you don’t have to travel anywhere to come to the conclusion that AOC is misinformed. That’s proven every time she opens her mouth.

At a press briefing on Monday, Hispanic pastors who had toured the same facility in which Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her contingent did this week came to a vastly different conclusion about the conditions.

The New York Democrat emerged from her visit making numerous dubious claims, among them that she had to “force” her way into a “cell” to speak with those detained at the facility, that she witnessed women being forced to drink water out of toilets, and that she feared for her personal safety amongst the brutish border patrol officers.

Rev. Samuel Rodriguez, who toured the same exact facility, said that what he and a fellow group of pastors saw was “drastically different.”

Ocasio-Cortez Lied

The group traveled to a Texas Border Protection facility following reports that conditions there were deplorable, causing nationwide outrage and leading to the congressional delegation’s visit.

“To my surprise, I saw something drastically different from the stories I’ve been hearing in our national discourse,” Rodriguez reported.

“We found no soiled diapers, no deplorable conditions and no lack of basic necessities,” Rodriguez said. “We toured the entire facility.”

You mean to tell me AOC … lied?! Say it ain’t so!

Rodriguez was slightly more diplomatic, claiming the politicians and agenda-driven doctors who visited the facility were simply misinformed.Visit our friends at WHATFINGER NEWS: The Internet’s Conservative Homepage

“Even as a veteran of immigration advocacy in the U.S., I was shocked at the misinformation of the crisis at the border,” a beleaguered Rodriguez stated.

The Democrats’ fabricated claims about these facilities are sickening. Does anyone actually believe border patrol officials threatened a congresswoman and forced women to drink out of toilets in front of lawmakers?

He Has No Agenda

Rodriguez has been an adviser to President Trump and former presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama on immigration reform. His agenda isn’t political – it involves solving the humanitarian crisis at the border.

AOC, on the other hand, has different motivations, via Fox News:

In fact, some told him the sources from whom the negative coverage originated “never toured the areas of the facility that we toured” and speculated they might have had political motivations.

You mean Ocasio-Cortez placed her perceived moral values above facts?

The anti-ICE, anti-intellect socialist was recently caught sharing “staged” photos of her weeping and collapsing in horror as she stared at an empty parking lot at another migrant detention facility.

Rodriguez has implored the President and Democrats and Republicans in Congress to work toward an immigration solution. He also seeks to convey that border patrol agents “care about these kids and have a passion for [their] calling.”
