Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez visits border detention facilities
More than a dozen congressional members, including Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, visited detention centers at the border Monday.
The trip comes after reports of deplorable conditions at some facilities, and new reports about border patrol agents posting vile and threatening comments in a secret Facebook group.
The US Customs and Border Patrol confirms it is investigating a social media page group that may have had several thousand border agents.
The agency calls it disturbing and inappropriate, with officers reportedly ridiculing members of Congress and their ethnicity.
