U.S. Border Patrol head condemns 'completely inappropriate' Facebook posts by agents

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Clapped Back at the Secret Border Patrol Facebook Group by Actually Visiting the Border

Fact finding: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez leads the group of politicians touring the Border Patrol migrant detention centres In Texas.

He added, "They don't want people to know that they have this system of child prisons, that they're locking up children for far more than 20 days, that they're slow-walking their release even when they have sponsors who have gone through the full background check system because they want to keep them in prison rather than releasing them to homes and schools and parks, where they should be". The vile stuff? There's no excuse. CBP employees are expected to adhere to CBP's Standards of Conduct, Directive No. 51735-013A both on and off duty, which states, 'Employees will not make abusive, derisive, profane, or harassing statements or gestures, or engage in any other conduct evidencing hatred or invidious prejudice to or about one person or group on account of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, age or disability. "Hard to assert when the details I shared are corroborated by other members of Congress, court documents, migrant testimony, and now photos released today by the Inspector General".

Responding to Ocasio-Cortez's accusations, multiple CBP officials, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, who spoke to Mail Online and Washington Examiner have denied the congresswoman's claims.

The agent likened the forum to a bar where agents would gather after work and swap stories. He says any agent active on Facebook would have likely received an invitation to join.

Some of the posts were graphic, doctored images of Ocasio-Cortez, including one that shows a smiling President Donald Trump forcing her head toward his crotch.

A prominent Hispanic evangelical pastor says that the conditions at Americas border detention facilities are nothing like what was described earlier this week by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y.

She also posted a two-tweet thread, in which she wrote, "After I forced myself into a cell w/ women&began speaking to them, one of them described their treatment at the hands of officers as "psychological warfare" - waking them at odd hours for no reason, calling them wh*res, etc. Tell me what about that is due to a 'lack of funding?'"

Department of Homeland Security. Of the 806 children, 165 had been in Border Patrol custody for more than a week.

The Border Patrol said after Wilmer's death that it had detained Wilmer and his mother for three days when his mother told agents her son was ill.

According to a screen shot published by ProPublica, the Facebook group had 9,500 members.

Rodriguez said he and his fellow pastors from the NHCLC had full access to the facility for at least one hour. "Some of the posts really bash the older agents".

"President Trump is right. We're talking systemic cruelty w/ a dehumanizing culture that treats them like animals", the freshman congresswoman said in another post.

The union produces a radio show, "The Green Line", that mixes discussions about border security with shoptalk and freewheeling news commentary. They have called the Black Lives Matter activists "domestic terrorists" and Mexico "a corrupt country".

U.S. Customs and Border Protection, the parent agency of Border Patrol, said an investigation into "disturbing social media activity" was underway.

He said that "nobody seemed to care" when group members in 2016 attacked an openly gay agent with homophobic posts when he voiced support for then-candidate Hillary Clinton. "You can change the behavior to some extent". Did you flip the script to accommodate people like me?' And they went 'Pastor Sam, absolutely not. "You can terminate people".
