Memo: AOC threw temper tantrum during 2019 border visit
Almost two years since Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (R-N.Y.) visited the border, memos surrounding her visit were obtained by the Daily Wire and revealed the reported temper tantrum she threw when she accused a Customs and Border Protections officer of taking her photo.
“During the briefing, Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez began loudly knocking on the window of the processing area and alleged that a Border Patrol Agent (BPA) was taking a ‘selfie’ photo of her,” the memo reads. “Rep. Ocasio-Cortez not only verbally voiced this concern, she became agitated and animated as she began to bang on the glass, pointing and screaming at the agent.”
But, when the agent showed the phone to their supervisor, there weren’t any photos of the New York representative. In the memo, the agents at the scene also say they did not see anyone take pictures.
“Ms. Ocasio became more animated and began to stomp her foot she then said ‘I as a woman of color do not feel safe here, as women of color none of us feel safe here, nobody of color feels safe here,’” the memo states. “Ms. Ocasio then stormed out of the” area to confront the female agent.
