AOC, Castro, and Other Lawmakers Blast Child Detention Center Conditions, Secret Facebook Group: WATCH

Rep. Joaquin Castro (D-TX), Rep. Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), and 12 other Democratic lawmakers visiting border detention facilities blasted the U.S. government on Monday for its disgusting and criminal treatment of children, and spoke out about the secret Facebook group uncovered by ProPublica.

The Dallas Morning News reports: ‘Some children told stories of toilets with no running water. One mother in a facility in El Paso said she drank water from a toilet, according to the lawmakers. After the tour, the lawmakers held a news conference but were mostly drowned out by about two dozen supporters of President Donald Trump, whose immigration policies the Democratic lawmakers largely blamed for the situation.’
