Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez this week visited two housing facilities at the U.S.-Mexico border, then held a press conference in which she made outrageous (and unsubstantiated) claims that residents were forced to drink out of toilets.
The mainstream media lapped it up like lapdogs, but Brandon Judd said it just ain’t true.
“As the president of the National Border Patrol Council, the union representing 16,000 Border Patrol agents, I am personally and professionally offended by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s outrageous, inflammatory and false claims about the dedicated law enforcement officers I represent,” Judd wrote in a Fox News piece.
Judd noted that on Tuesday, Ocasio-Cortez once again described the housing facilities for foreigners who are caught illegally entering America as concentration camps – “absurdly comparing these facilities to the death camps run by the Nazis who murdered 6 million Jews and millions of others during World War II.
“This is a horrible insult to the memories of the innocent men, women and children slaughtered by the Nazis, and to our Border Patrol agents – implying that our agents are no different from the Nazi butchers. The outrageousness of this vicious slander is breathtaking – especially coming from a member of Congress.”
