I think the real question we need to ask ourselves. Is drinking out of a toilet worse than the conditions they are fleeing? If not then I would say they are moving up in the world. If so send them back.

How is this not awesome?

Alot of people were accusing her of lying. So she put her butt on the line and swore in to make the statement.

Its admirable if anything.

What would you do?
FALSE.

This is a political stunt, with which Cummings himself said was unnecessary.

ICS has refuted and even displayed a response.

Others have been and saw nothing AOC has said.

She is being cornered and now taking her position for granted, ala Booker playbook.

Kinda sad and pitiful that you're unable to see that, such an easily influence folk you are 🤭


Easy to influence?

I looked at all the facts.

What she said made sense.

The person drinking from the toilet was a lone example.of a situation wherein a single inmates sink stopped working ( the sinks are combined with the toilets as one device). Water would not.flow out of the sink faucet due to the malfunction, but it would.flow through the toilet function. The inmate was denied bottled water, and therefore had to drink from the toilet stream when it wasn't meal time and until the sink was fixed.

Was it a short period of time? Yes

Was it fixed? Yes

Did AOC take advantage of a small one off incident and blow it up politically? Yes

Did it happen? Yes

Was she wrong to do it? Not really... We shouldn't be locking up people coming here to contribute and live a better life.

The detention centers don't have singe-cells like jails.

The toilet drinking allegation by AOC is total BS 😎

The next protest theme:

"Promenade for Lemonade"


"If I can figure that one out, I might get to be Spokesperson for the State Department"

There were other lawmakers in that cell that heard the migrants say that and one of them tried to get water out of the sink. The faucet was broken.
Are they all lying?


Seems legit. Best we close down the detention cent.. I mean concentration camps, and stop gassing millions of mexicans then.

You heard it guys, the faucet was broken. A crime against humanity.

And surely we have evidence of this, as well as sworn testimony from the slighted individuals. Unless those nazi agents already have asylum skin lamps..

They are also locked in cells, maybe this cell only had one broken faucet??
It was the migrants that told them the guard said that.
As far as the bottled water, well, there's another report from a detention facility in Arizona I believe where a group of kids complained about the food being crap and the water being too heavily chlorinated. Instead of the guards handing them bottles water and heading off to test the water, they took away the mats the kids were using to sleep on. This is coming from dept of social services documents I believe.


They're locked in cells? How did they talk to her highness? Through the bars, tapping in morse code? with secret paper folded horses floating down the drain? Wait, that's prison break..

I believe... I believe I can fly...

Honestly, i can't blame her, she was told all along that 'nothing's gonna stop you, nothing's gonna stop you now!" And that you should fake it till you make it

Unfortunately no one told her what to do once you fake it enough that you actually make it! What then?

And here we are

Old parents always know how to teach the way to get up there "because they missed on it and they want better for their kids" However they also fail to explain that once there, you actually have to know what to do on the job, not just believe that all you need to do is understand how to get there

About what?

Drinking out the toilets?

Nothing about that in your article except that AOC made it up, the other mentions of a toilet is its so crowded people stood on it.

Maybe they need a slogan at the border,

Non-yankee go home.

You're kidding right?
Are you trying to justify treating humans like this?
Because they came from a troubled country you think that starving overcrowding filthy conditions are a step up?
Dont be ridiculous.

So when Mike went down trying to prove that conditions were all hunky dory and found filthy conditions I guess he was lying too?

You think she's lying dont you?
You all think she is lying.
So Mikes report was what?
He had cameras following him recording all the horror.
I guess he was lying and so were the cameras.

Keep up the nonsense do.....

And the media will continue to report the truth.

All hail the ostrich society.

I would assume she is pretty sure of what she is swearing to.
I suppose they could allow her to bring a camera in next time then right?
