Democratic congresswoman says they were 'concerned' for their safety during border facility tour

Rep. Norma Torres told CNN that the members of the congressional delegation that visited a border detention facility were concerned for their safety because of the Border Patrol agents.

They were concerned after a ProPublica article reported on a Facebook page that included some Border Patrol agents who had shared memes degrading migrants, and some members of Congress, including Democratic California Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, were among those targeted.

“Well, I was definitely concerned. We were disrespected when we were there. We had a conversation with management about this article before we entered the location. Now, we were told that our staff had to stay outside and that we had to keep either our phones there at the entryway or we had to leave them in the car," the California Democrat said on Tuesday.

"Now, I don’t trust to leave my cellphone with these individuals that would threaten members of Congress while we are in the process of doing our job. Let me remind these people that this is our job. Oversight is our job, and that’s what we were doing. And to threaten members of Congress, I certainly did not feel safe to be inside this location," she added.

Well, the DEMS are starting to at least acknowledge that there IS indeed a problem at the border.  Their fearless leaders, Nancy and Chuckie have been lying to them. 

For anyone that thinks that the crisis at the border is manufactured, they really need to go down there and take a look and judge for themselves.
I Believe in the United States of America as a Government of the people, by the people, for the people; whose just powers are derived from the consent of the governed; a democracy in a republic; a sovereign nation of many sovereign states; a perfect union, one and inseparable; established upon those principles of freedom, equality, justice and humanity for which American patriots sacrificed their lives and fortunes. I therefore believe it is my duty to my country to love it; to support its Constitution, to obey its laws; to respect its flag; and to defend it against all enemies.

Sure they were 'concerned' that their canard would be exposed.
