Controversial Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) is calling for Congress to "eliminate" Customs and Border Protection (CBP).

Radical lawmaker Omar blasted the federal law enforcement agency during a Wednesday interview, demanding that it is shut down.

CBP has recently come under fire over allegations of unconfirmed conditions at detention centers along the US Southern Border.

The agency has also taken heat over revelations involving a Facebook group where Border Patrol agents allegedly made derogatory posts about immigrants and several lawmakers, including freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY).

Omar made the remarks during an appearance on the BET digital series "Black Coffee," and grouped CBP with other "rogue agencies" lacking in accountability and transparency.

"We know that they have spoken in the most vile ways about immigrants," Omar explained.

"We know that they have certain views of what brown and black people deserve.

"And so we should be having a conversation about eliminating their existence [and] reforming the agencies that deal with the most vulnerable, who are children and women."

She added, "We are continuing to allow for them to terrorize people who are running away from the most horrific circumstances, and that's... inhumane and that can't sit well with the American values we have ... about dignity and humanity."

Omar previously called for the elimination of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

She also backed Ocasio-Cortez's claim that the U.S. is essentially "running concentration camps" along the southern border.

However, current and former immigration officials have blasted Democrat Rep. Ocasio-Cortez's high-profile accusations of cruel treatment at a Texas border facility, rejecting her claim that agents forced detainees to “drink out of the toilets” and slamming the celebrity lawmaker for "misinforming" the public.

Ocasio-Cortez traveled to the border on Monday with almost a dozen members of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus.

She later blasted border officials as “violent” and “inhumane” -- while claiming agents forced migrant women and children being detained in cells to drink toilet water.

“They are not drinking out of the toilet—no Border Patrol agent is going to make anyone drink out of the toilet,” former U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) director Tom Homan said on Fox News' “America’s Newsroom” Tuesday.

“It’s just ridiculous on its face.”

Homan alleged that Ocasio-Cortez was “clearly, intentionally misinforming the American public.”

“She’s lost all credibility,” he added.
