Audio: Union Chief Says AOC Lying About Border Agents
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) is taking some much-deserved heat after attacking border patrol agents in Texas, claiming that the agents are forcing migrant women to drink from toilets. She also claims agents were "threatening" towards her during her visit along with other members of Congress.
The head of the border patrol union says AOC is lying, and is now calling on Customs and Border Protection to release video footage of the visit. Brandon Judd, president of the National Border Patrol Council, fired back at AOC in an explosive interview now posted on Breitbart News (his comments start at roughly the 4:40 mark):
He said that cameras that film the facilities would show that Ocasio-Cortez was lying: “I’m calling on CBP to release that footage so they clearly show that she was treated with the utmost dignity and respect,” Judd said.
“Nobody is forced to drink out of a toilet and nobody is told to drink out of a toilet,” Judd explained. “Its completely and totally a baseless and ridiculous allegation and frankly it needs to be investigated and she needs to be exposed.”
Meanwhile, even liberal Senator Jon Tester (D-MT) was defending the migrant detention centers during a townhall meeting in the state's capital of Helena on Tuesday morning, as Mike Dennison reports for the Montana Television Network:
But when an audience member suggested that the holding facilities should be closed, the U.S. Immigrations and Custom Enforcement abolished and the United States should have “open borders,” Tester said he doesn’t support that.
“I don’t think that the majority of Montanans would say, `Let them come into the United States free, we’re going to open up the border,’” he said.
