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.
According to the memo, the confrontation reportedly turned into AOC “personally admonish[ing] and berat[ing]” the agent, who did nothing wrong.

Migrants sick of waiting, surge border after judge temporarily blocks Biden from revoking Title 42
Del Rio Sector Chief Patrol Agent Jason D. Owens tweeted recently, on May 17, that agents under his command apprehended 2,849 migrants last weekend. However, as migrants no longer want to wait for Title 42 to end, they have surged the border.
In a Breitbart exclusive, the media outlet reported the “number will be eclipsed as it appears the total could approach 4,000 this weekend.” Unfortunately, “the migrants did not appear to know or understand that the Title 42 will not end on Monday due to a federal court order. They expressed they were simply tired of waiting” the report adds.
Between April 1st and May 15 of this year, approximately 513,000 migrants illegally crossed the southern border.
Breitbart notes “whether Title 42 ends or not, migrants say they are tired of waiting and surged across the Rio Grande into the Eagle Pass, Texas, area of operations. As many as 3,600 crossed so far this weekend — eclipsing last weekend’s total of just over 2,800 migrant apprehensions in the Del Rio Sector — according to a source operating within U.S. Customs and Border Protection.”
In just a couple of hours on Sunday evening, agents apprehended more than 700 migrants. Agents identified majority of the migrants as Honduran nationals, and some as Colombian.
One source told Breitbart resources were not available to transport migrants from the border to the processing station. It also appears the NGOs who regularly shelter the migrants are overloaded as migrants are reportedly being dropped off at an Eagle Pass Stripes convenience store.
“The crossings are not without danger. On Saturday, seven migrants were swept off their feet in the middle of the night forcing Border Patrol agents to jump into action to save their lives” Breitbart Texas reported. Those seven were lucky, whereas the bodies of three migrants were recovered at the Del Rio Sector.
