OMG, they were told to drink from the toilets because there was NO RUNNING WATER TO DRINK.

 

 

"There was a toilet but no running water for people to drink," Castro said. "One of the women said she was told by an agent to drink water out of the toilet."

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

The most alarmingRep. Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez

"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."

Her claims were disputed by the 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.

Interesting to see Fox supporters attack someone who repeated what she was told.  Kinda makes one wonder why they often repeat the nonsense they're told by Fox.....

 

Here's another account from one who visited the concentration camps yesterday.....

 

"If you want water, just drink from a toilet." That's what border patrol told one thirsty woman we met on today's #DemsAtTheBorder trip. These are the same CBP personnel who threatened to throw burritos at members of Congress. Changes must be made. #DontLookAway
