After a group of lawyers that visited one of the detention centers housing migrant children called the conditions inhumane, the public called for action from the federal government. Democratic Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York joined a congressional delegation and visited the same facility in Clint, Texas to see conditions firsthand.

What they reported back was not good.


Representative Ocasio-Cortez tweeted:

"Just left the 1st CBP facility."
"I see why CBP officers were being so physically &sexually threatening towards me [in a social media group for CBP employees]."
"Officers were keeping women in cells w/ no water & had told them to drink out of the toilets."
"This was them on their GOOD behavior in front of members of Congress."

After the congressional delegation spoke about what they saw, Counselor to the President Kellyanne Conway went on Fox and Friends to accuse the Congresswoman of lying.

"Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez going down to one of these facilities and making this outrageous claim that a woman’s drinking from a toilet, which everybody who has control over that facility, or control for the border patrol has said that’s not true, they’ve not heard of this."

But AOC fired back against the woman who once claimed lies were just "alternative facts."

Democratic Representative Judy Chu of California backed AOC's claims, including Customs and Border Protection officers telling a woman who asked for water to drink from a toilet.

Multiple members of the congressional delegation stated CBP officers were openly disrespectful.

AOC also pointed out that some of the children are Indigenous to the Americas, descended from peoples who lived in South, Central and North America for tens of thousands of years.

People had issues with Conway calling anyone else a liar.

But some people see no issue with the potential human rights violations.

The overflowing temporary detention facilities, longterm housing and tent city concentration camps are the result of the Trump administration's zero tolerance policy, drafted by Stephen Miller and issued by former Attorney General Jeff Sessions. As part of the new policy, the Trump administration enacted a family separation policy to discourage migrants from seeking asylum in the United States.

Former Vice President and current 2020 Presidential candidate Joe Biden erupted at a man during an Iowa town hall who accused him of actively working to get his son Hunter a board position on the Ukrainian energy company Burisma Holdings. Biden called the man a "damn liar" before challenging him to pushups.

Republicans seized on the moment as an opportunity to discredit Biden as a candidate, but Fox and Friends cohost Ainsley Earhardt's reaction may be the most deluded yet.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has repeatedly made clear that, after President Donald Trump solicited Ukrainian leaders to announce investigations that personally benefitted him, the decision to launch impeachment proceedings wasn't a political maneuver, but a constitutional mandate.

The move came after years of Trump's supporters, as well as some critics, insisted that impeachment would be political suicide for the Democrats.

Since shortly after the inquiry's announcement in September, support for impeachment outweighed its oppositon as more revelations surfaced of Trump's dealings with Ukraine, but his 2020 campaign manager Brad Parscale attempted to show that Pelosi's move to impeach would lose Democrats their House majority.

The House Judiciary Committee, in its public impeachment hearing against President Donald Trump on Wednesday, consulted four constitutional scholars for greater insight to the legal implications of the President's Ukraine scandal—and whether they merit impeachment.

Three witnesses, called by Democrats, each made compelling arguments for the articles of impeachment with which Trump could be charged.

George Washington University professor Jonathan Turley—invited by Republicans—was the lone dissenter.
