AOC freaked out on a female CBP agent after the agent allegedly snapped a selfie with the New York Congresswoman in the background, according to The Daily Wire.
AOC then flew off her hinges, became very “agitated,” and flew into a temper tantrum.
“And to these CBP officers saying they felt ‘threatened’ by me – They were literally discussing making a GoFundMe for an officer who attacked my on my tour,” AOC claimed without evidence at the time. “They confiscated my phone, and they were all armed. I’m 5’4”. They’re just upset I exposed their inhumane behavior.”

The name of the CBP agent has been concealed.
Memos describing the incident express that none of the agents saw the Female CBP agent snap a picture.
Later the agent’s phone was reviewed and no images of the congresswoman were found on the device.
“During the briefing, Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez began loudly knocking on the window of the processing area and alleged that a Border Patrol Agent (BPA) was taking a ‘selfie’ photo of her,” a Patrol Agent stated.
“Rep. Ocasio-Cortez not only verbally voiced this concern, she became agitated and animated as she began to bang on the glass, pointing and screaming at the agent.”
A memo states that the agent showed her supervisor what she was looking at on her cellular device and the supervisor said that the contents of what was shown “had nothing to do with interior photos of the detention area.”
An agent in charge stated that AOC went on to “personally admonish and berate” the female agent before accusing the agent of “unprofessional conduct” demanding the agent “should have no contact with children.”
“Ms. Ocasio became more animated and began to stomp her foot she then said ‘I as a woman of color do not feel safe here, as women of color none of us feel safe here, nobody of color feels safe here.’”
“Ms. Ocasio then stormed out of the” area in order to confront CBP agent.
“On July 1, 2019, I heard loud banging on the window behind me while I was working inside the processing area I turned around to this lady shaking her finger at me, I was not sure why she was trying to attract my attention until Patrol Agent in Charge (PAIC) came to me and told me that they were accusing me of taking ‘selfie shots’ of Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez.”
“At this time, I immediately handed my phone to PAIC to show him I had no photos of Ms. Ocasio-Cortez on my phone and he confirmed there were no photos of Ms. Ocasio-Cortez.”
“Although my phone was out, I was not taking any photos.”
The agent accused of taking the selfie seemed not to even know who Ocasio-Cortez was according to a memo written shortly after the incident.
