Arizona Border Patrol shared a video tour of their facility this week, directly refuting claims about the conditions in the facility made by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y). . .
The Arizona Border Patrol posted the video Wednesday and captioned it, “Here is a look at the inside of a #BorderPatrol processing center with Chief Patrol Agent of #TucsonSector Roy Villareal.”
In the video, Villareal can be seen showing well-stocked supply closets, filled with medical supplies, clothing, and personal hygiene supplies. A supply cart full of food, baby formula, and blankets can also be seen.

In extremely heated remarks, Ocasio-Cortez said that she witnessed horrible treatment during her visits to the detention centers.
She alleged that young children did not have access to clean diapers, and insisted that many detainees also reportedly went without ample access to clean water or food — even claiming that some were told to drink from the toilet. The freshman lawmaker also referred to the facilities as “concentration camps,” a term that did not go over well with those lawmakers on either side of the aisle.
