Embattled far-left Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez toured an immigration detention center in Texas Monday; telling reporters she was “not safe” from federal agents during her widely publicized visit.

“In that last facility, I was not safe from the officers in that facility,” said Ocasio-Cortez.

Ocasio-Cortez fired-off at Border Patrol Agents Tuesday morning; saying members of the CBP were “disrespectful” during her congressional tour of migrant detention facilities.

“I can’t understate how disturbing it was that CBP officers were openly disrespectful of the Congressional tour,” posted AOC on social media. “If officers felt comfortable violating agreements in front of their *own* management & superiors, that tells us the agency has lost all control of their own officers.”

“And now CBP is pushing easily disprovable lies about members of Congress. Truly nuts. And to think this week the GOP & Dem ‘Problem Solvers Caucus’ fought to eliminate ALL accountability amendments from funding. They just wrote a multi-billion dollar blank check for misconduct,” she added.

Ocasio-Cortez doubled-down on her ‘Concentration Camp’ comments Thursday; telling reporters the Republican Party is running a “torture project” along the US-Mexico border.

“How do you respond to Republicans who are talking about physical barriers being part of any package that deals with the actual crisis in terms of the traffic coming across?” asked a reporter from the Intercept.

“If they want to do that, that’s fine… but they should not be using a humanitarian crisis as a bargaining chip to make sure they pursue their little torture project,” fired-back Ocasio-Cortez.

Yad Vashem, the official Israel Holocaust Center in Jerusalem responded this week to Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’ recent comments; urging the far-left lawmaker to “learn” about concentration camps.

@AOC Concentration camps assured a slave labor supply to help in the Nazi war effort, even as the brutality of life inside the camps helped assure the ultimate goal of ‘extermination through labor.’ Learn about concentration camps,” posted Yad Vashem.
