Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) visited two migrant detention centers near the Texas border with other members of Congress this week.
Since touring the facilities, Ocasio-Cortez and others in her group have been vocal about the squalid conditions, with harrowing descriptions of overcrowded cells, abusive guards, and detainees told to drink from toilets.
The members of Congress who viewed the facility were told to surrender their electronic devices, but Representative Joaquin Castro (D-TX) was able to smuggle his into the center, revealing the appalling conditions.
Americans across the country were outraged by what they saw. Others—like infamous far-right commentator Tomi Lahren—weren't.
Lahren chose to call out Ocasio-Cortez instead.
Lahren's comments came less than a day after a 9,500 member border agent Facebook group proved to be rife with jokes regarding immigrant deaths and lewd doctored images of Ocasio-Cortez.
It didn't go well at all.
People immediately began sticking up for Ocasio-Cortez.
As she often does, however, Lahren stayed mad.
Some had theories as to why Lahren's ire for AOC was so strong.
Meanwhile, Ocasio-Cortez and other members of Congress who have actually visited the facilities, continue to get the word out.
