Latino Pastor Shares ‘Drastically Different’ Story To AOC On Border Detention Conditions

Independent Journal Review

Excerpt:

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) is sharing her experience visiting the southern border, Latino Rev. Samuel Rodriguez is offering a stark contrasting remark on the conditions.

Ocasio-Cortez toured a migrant detention facility on Monday and later claimed on Twitter that the U.S. Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) are making migrants drink out of toilets for water. Following her visit, sources from the facility said that the Congresswoman was yelling at CBP agents “in a threatening manner.”

However, Pastor Rodriguez — who’s advised several presidents, including President Donald Trump, on immigration reform and serves as president of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference — has a different story to tell after visiting the same facility as Ocasio-Cortez.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

Rodriguez said during a press conference on Monday that after hearing reports about conditions at the detention facilities he “wanted to see what was actually happening in order to better enable our efforts to find a fair and a just solution to our broken immigration system.”

“To my surprise, I saw something drastically different from the stories I’ve been hearing in our national discourse,” he said. “Even as a veteran of immigration advocacy in the U.S., I was shocked at the misinformation of the crisis at the border.”

Apart from Ocasio-Cortez’s claims, Rodriguez explained that he found “no soiled diapers, no deplorable conditions and no lack of basic necessities,” adding that border agents have “unequivocally denied it” when asked if the facility was staged.

Rodriguez urged Congress to “address the [immigration] system they created.”

Rodriguez was joined by other Hispanic pastors when he toured the facility, which Pastor Carlos Moran also noted, “… we do call on our political leaders to set aside their personal agendas and begin focusing on resolving this immigration crisis.”


Yeah, more than one refutes what AOC says. Her righteous indignation, in response to this, ought to be good! :popcorn:

While I am somewhat thankful to the Rev for his repudiation of AOC, his line about our "broken immigration system" just pisses me off to no end.
It's NOT broken.
It may not please those who want to allow every Juan and Isabella to enter without question, but that does NOT mean 'broken'!!

Very well said, Jim. The traitorous Democrats are doing everything they can to break it, but they haven't succeeded yet.

Obama built the cages, sinks and toilets.

AOC is a bartender.

Glass, ice, 1 oz of rum fill with coke.

AOC thinks of herself as a NASA mathematician.
