    Life is like a fire hydrant- sometimes you help people put out their fires, but most of the time you just get peed on by every dog in the neighborhood.

    Photo shows hybrid of toilet and drinking fountain in migrant detention centers, where Ocasio-Cortez says women had to drink from the bowl


    • On Monday, Rep. Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez was one of a group of lawmakers who visited a Customs and Border Protection migrant detention facilities near El Paso, Texas.
    • She said in a tweet that migrants were being held in appalling conditions and "drinking out of toilets."
    • Critics accused her of misrepresenting the situation. CBP said migrants were using toilet units with built-in drinking fountains for clean drinking water.
    • Ocasio-Cortez hit back, saying that, on the visit, they found the fountains weren't working, and "women were told they could drink out of the bowl."



    After New York Rep. Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez visited a US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) detention facility for migrants in El Paso, Texas, on Monday, she described shocking conditions and said officials were using "psychological warfare" against detainees.

    The most alarming claim was that migrants were made to drink from toilets.

    "Now I've seen the inside of these facilities. It's not just the kids. It's everyone," she wrote on Twitter.

    "People drinking out of toilets, officers laughing in front of members Congress. I brought it up to their superiors. They said 'officers are under stress & act out sometimes.' No accountability," she added.

    Her claims were disputed by CBP.

    An official told the New York Post that migrants are not drinking out of toilet bowls.

    Instead, the official said, the facility has prison-style toilets where drinking water is dispensed from a fountain attached to the toilet as part of a single unit.

    "'No one is drinking toilet water," an official said. "They're drinking potable water from the sink attached to the toilet."



    Aaron Reichlin-Melnick, an immigration lawyer and policy analyst at the American Immigration Council, tweeted pictures of the toilet-drinking-fountain combos taken from court filings and other inspections of detention facilities.

    The photo shows one of the units from a 2016 Arizona court filing.

    Other pictures showed filthy conditions in toilets and out-of-order drinking fountains.

    Ocasio-Cortez's description of the facilities echoes claims made in court documents filed on Monday by migrants detained in CBP facilities.

    "They would tell us to drink from the sink above the toilet," said a migrant named as Cristobal, who was detained with his 7-year-old son in June near El Paso. "We did not get any clean water the entire time."

    Seizing on the pictures, though, critics accused Ocasio-Cortez of misrepresenting the situation. David Martosko, the US politics editor for DailyMail.com, was among them.

    "I haven't seen photo of the Clint, TX facilities that @AOC described today, but it would be interesting if 'drinking from the toilet' meant drinking from an attached sink marked 'potable water,'" he tweeted, along with the 2016 photo.

    In response, Ocasio-Cortez said the photo did show the type of hybrid unit she saw in Texas.

    However, she said that in the facility she visited, the drinking part was broken, and the migrants had been told to drink from the toilet itself.

    She said: "This was in fact the type of toilet we saw in the cell. Except there was just one, and the sink portion was not functioning - @AyannaPressley smartly tried to open the faucet, and nothing came out. So the women were told they could drink out of the bowl."

    Business Insider has contacted Massachusetts Rep. Ayanna Pressley for comment on Ocasio-Cortez's claims. On Monday night, she shared Ocasio-Cortez's tweet.

    CBP did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Ocasio-Cortez's new claim.

    SICK: 8-Year-Old 'Mini AOC' Has to Delete Parody Accounts After Doxxing, Death Threats Against Her Family



    Source: PJmedia

    In a sign of the stupid times in which we live, a family has had to delete all social media accounts for their little girl's hilarious Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez impersonation after receiving death threats and being doxxed. Her stepfather announced the sad news on Twitter Friday:

    Ava will not being doing any more MINI AOC content.

    The Left's Harassment and death threats have gone too far for our family. We have been getting calls on our personal phone numbers.
    For our safety and for our child's safety, we deleted all Mini AOC accounts.


    Mini AOC, whose Twitter account had 87,000 followers before it was deleted, was played by Ava Martinez. She brought so much laughter and fun to the internet with her harmless parodies of Big AOC. Most recently, she dressed all in white in front of a fenced play park feigning crying because it's always closed when she goes there. She's so cute.



    "Every time a plan a visit to the park it’s closed. Can everyone see how sad this makes me?" she wrote in a Twitter post accompanying the photos. The rest of them are unavailable now that her accounts have been deleted.

    In an interview on Gateway Pundit in May, her father explained that Ava has no interest in politics. "No, Ava’s just a sweet, adorable 8-year-old girl who happens to be a very talented performer and has no interest in politics at all like most kids her age. She loves to sing, dance, cheer, and really enjoys joking and acting and that’s why these videos have been so much fun because she just loves to entertain and make people laugh." She began doing the parody when friends and family noticed how much she looks like grown-up AOC.

    If the following video doesn't make you laugh out loud, something is wrong with your funny bone.



    But the harmless and popular act this little girl was having fun doing (better than most Saturday Night Live professionals) is now over because the rabid left put her in their crosshairs. Thanks to commenters like this guy, her family was targeted for harassment. It's interesting to me that what Ava was doing is called "exploitation" (for making harmless, G-rated comedy skits) but that Desmond Is Amazing drag kid who strips and gets dollars thrown at him in nightclubs is totally fine and not exploited at all, according to these people.



    If the real AOC had any compassion at all, she would invite Mini AOC to do a livestream with her in a sign of support for a little girl who doesn't deserve to live in fear because she poked fun at a congresswoman. (Then again, Congresswoman Frederica Wilson thinks she can write anti-mocking legislation and put parody creators in jail, so I won't hold my breath.)
