Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) speaks to the press following a congressional delegation's visit to the Clint migrant facility in Texas. The congresswoman railed against conditions at the Texas facility and said she herself did not feel "safe" in the presence of border patrol officers.
"In that last facility, I was not safe from the officers in that facility," Ocasio-Cortez said Monday afternoon.
AOC talked about "abuse in the facilities" and how people were told to drink water out of the toilet. The Congresswoman drove off as a reporter asked if she witnessed the atrocity:
This was in fact the type of toilet we saw in the cell.— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) July 1, 2019
Except there was just one, and the sink portion was not functioning - @AyannaPressley smartly tried to open the faucet, and nothing came out.
So the women were told they could drink out of the bowl. https://t.co/rcu9Rt6B2x
