A Border Patrol agent debunked AOC’s claim that migrants were forced to drink from the toilet in the Border detention facilities.
The agent on scene said the congresswoman misrepresented why a person in custody had drunk from a toilet.
â€œSo this is what happened with the migrant and drinking water from toilet: she wanted water, didnâ€™t know how to use the faucet in the cell, and drank from the toilet. She never told AOC that we made her drink from the toilet. AOC, of course, changed it â€¦ This was when she [the migrant] was apprehended and brought into the facility,â€ according to the agent.
A Border Patrol official familiar with the sectorâ€™s media and congressional visits said the cityâ€™s congresswoman, Veronica Escobar, has been through stations â€œ15 timesâ€ but did not respond in the same way as her colleague on Monday. Later in the visit, the first official said Escobar “yelled” at El Paso Chief Patrol Agent Aaron Hull about its care of detainees.
â€œWeâ€™ve never hidden anything from her,â€ the official said.
It is clear that AOC is blatantly removing context from events for political advantage. This witness proves to us two important things.
The first is that this never occurred. It is clear that AOC’s version of events never happened.
The second is that this isn’t a widespread policy. By lying she actually helped our argument. It is clear that there is no policy at the border making anyone drink from toilets.
