The Border Agents Who Threatened AOC Must Be Named and Fired

I make fun of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez a lot, because this is the United States of America and we have the right to mock and criticize our public officials. But whether I like her or not, AOC is a duly elected member of Congress. Even if I disagree with her ideas and her methods, I don’t want her to be placed in any physical danger. If you’re a real American, neither do you.

That’s why I’m outraged by this latest news.

“I was not safe from the officers in that facility.”

AOC’s chief of staff expanded on the charge:

This is a very serious accusation. Border Patrol agents threatening a sitting member of Congress? This cannot stand. There must be an investigation. We must know who did this.

All Americans must stand up and demand the names of these agents, and we must know specifically what they did to threaten AOC. If our immigration system is so out of control that they think they can threaten a congresswoman, there must be accountability. These individuals must be held responsible for their shocking misbehavior. They cannot be allowed to hide behind their badges.

Is anybody following up on this bombshell allegation? Is anybody investigating this threat against a sitting member of Congress?

If not, why not?

And if it didn’t happen, why did AOC say it did?
