Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) said Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) is “getting bolder with her lies” about the crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border. Crenshaw said Ocasio-Cortez’s colleagues are operating off a false premise and are misinforming the public for “political ends.”
“It’s sad to see,” Crenshaw said of Ocasio-Cortez’s performance at a border facility on Monday. “She’s getting bolder with her lies on this. And this is what is actually happening and this is what the American people need to understand. People like AOC are operating off of a false premise, and it’s deliberately designed to misinform the American people for her political ends.”
“Remember, first there was no crisis at all. Then it was a manufactured crisis, then it was a crisis completely created by Trump, then there were concentration camps, then people are Nazis. Now she’s saying border patrol agents harassed her and forced migrants to drink out of toilets,” Crenshaw said.
“This is insanity,” Crenshaw told FNC host Martha MacCallum. “This is not true. There’s no one else corroborating this kind of reports yet she’s using it to try to make her case that we shouldn’t have any enforcement and that we should have open borders. This is really dishonest behavior from a member of Congress and I honestly can’t believe it.”
