Federal Memos Emerge Showing AOC Threw Tantrum During 2019 Border Trip
Far-left congresswoman stomped foot and berated CBP agents
Progressive Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) screamed at a female CPB agent while in an “agitated” state during a visit to a Border Patrol station in El Paso, Texas, in 2019, newly-released government memos have revealed.
The incident occurred when an agent allegedly took a “selfie” with Ocasio-Cortez, which triggered a massive temper tantrum.
According to The Daily Signal:
Ocasio-Cortez said the Border Patrol agent—whose name is redacted in the U.S. Customs and Border Protection documents—used her cellphone to take a photograph of herself with the New York congresswoman in the background. …
Details of the episode are contained in nine pages of documents regarding July 1, 2019, visit by Ocasio-Cortez and 13 other House Democrats to the Processing Command Center of the federal government’s El Paso station.
Ocasio-Cortez later claimed that officer attacked her during the tour, but there was no evidence to back it up.
“And to these CBP officers saying they felt ‘threatened’ by me – They were literally discussing making a GoFundMe for an officer who attacked my on my tour,” AOC claimed without evidence at the time.
“They confiscated my phone, and they were all armed. I’m 5’4”. They’re just upset I exposed their inhumane behavior.”

They were literally discussing making a GoFundMe for an officer who attacked my on my tour.
They confiscated my phone, and they were all armed. I’m 5’4”.
They’re just upset I exposed their inhumane behavior.
The female agent's name was redacted from the memos including those who wrote down what they witnessed.
The memos reveal that agents did not witness any of their colleagues taking photos of AOC.
An agent supervisor reviewed the agent’s phone and did not find any photos on it of AOC.
“During the briefing, Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez began loudly knocking on the window of the processing area and alleged that a Border Patrol Agent (BPA) was taking a ‘selfie’ photo of her,” the Patrol Agent in Charge wrote.
“Rep. Ocasio-Cortez not only verbally voiced this concern, she became agitated and animated as she began to bang on the glass, pointing and screaming at the agent.”
The memo adds that the agent said she had her phone out and showed her supervisor what she was looking at.
The supervisor said it “had nothing to do with interior photos of the detention area.”
The Patrol Agent said OC went on to “personally admonish and berate” the female agent before accusing her of “unprofessional conduct” and demanding the agent “should have no contact with children.”
According to another federal agent, AOC approached two women and demanded the location of a certain cell in the facility.
The memo says AOC was so loud it made it impossible to hear other people.
“Ms. Ocasio became more animated and began to stomp her foot she then said, ‘I as a woman of color do not feel safe here, as women of color none of us feel safe here, nobody of color feels safe here,'” the memo states.
“Ms. Ocasio then stormed out of the” area to confront the female agent."
The agent who was accused of taking a photo of AOC appeared to not even know who she was, the memo added.
“On July 1, 2019, I heard loud banging on the window behind me while I was working inside the processing area. I turned around to this lady shaking her finger at me, I was not sure why she was trying to attract my attention until Patrol Agent in Charge (PAIC) came to me and told me that they were accusing me of taking ‘selfie shots’ of Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez,” the agent wrote.
“At this time, I immediately handed my phone to PAIC to show him I had no photos of Ms. Ocasio-Cortez on my phone, and he confirmed there were no photos of Ms. Ocasio-Cortez. Although my phone was out, I was not taking any photos.”
A federal agent who was right next to the accused agent said they did not witness any photos being taken of AOC.
