Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) made quite the claim Monday that she was “physically and sexually” threatened by Customs and Border Protection agents.

On Monday, AOC — seeing a chance to cash in politically with a crisis — headed to the U.S.-Mexico border in El Paso, Texas, to view a housing center for foreigners who have tried to sneak into America or have claimed political asylum.

This is when she took to Twitter to claim she was ‘threatened’ by federal agents.

“I see why CBP officers were being so physically &sexually threatening towards me. Officers were keeping women in cells w/ no water & had told them to drink out of the toilets. This was them on their GOOD behavior in front of members of Congress,” AOC wrote Monday on Twitter.
