Busted: AOC uses staged photos of herself by a chain link fence to promote her ‘Concentration Camp’ narrative



Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y. (AOC) stares at Border Patrol Agents on the other side of the fence in staged photo.

On Monday, democratic socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) was criticized for pushing photos of herself seemingly intended to help quell the blowback she’s received from equating detention centers at the United States/Mexico border with WWII-era concentration camps.

The photos were apparently taken at a Tornillo, Texas, detention center, but did not show the conditions the congresswoman was upset about, rather, the pictures were merely of Ms. Ocasio-Cortez looking sad by a chain-linked fence. Users online, many of whom identify as her supporters, mocked the “photo-op” and suggested the pictures were “staged.”

“Before [AOC] hit the national stage & was just a fairly unknown House candidate [from] NYC, she took time [away from] her campaign & came [down] to #Tornillo to protest the #tentcity housing migrant children. I made these previously unpublished [photos] a [year] ago today,” posted Ivan Pierre Aguirre, the man who took the photos of Ocasio-Cortez.

However, after she published these photos additional pictures surfaced showing her group was in fact in front of a gate with no children in sight, only slightly bewildered Border Patrol agents that appear to be wondering about the photo op that was occuring.

You can clearly see the patrol car in the background on the opposite side of the gate where AOC is pretending to have her break down.

Despite all of her rehtoric and posturing, she was one of four Democrats that voted against the House humanitarian relief bill on Tuesday.
