"If you want water, just drink from a toilet." That's what border patrol told one thirsty woman we met on today's #DemsAtTheBorder trip. These are the same CBP personnel who threatened to throw burritos at members of Congress. Changes must be made. #DontLookAway pic.twitter.com/dW34DRduDA

This sounds like one of those Holocaust concentration camps myths.
Border Patrol agents told detained migrants to drink from the toilets in their overcrowded cells, Democrat members of Congress said after a visiting detention camps on the Texas-Mexico border.
More than a dozen lawmakers visited detention centers in Clint and El Paso, Texas during a trip led by the Congressional Hispanic Caucus. The conditions were abysmal and Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers were uncooperative, they said. Congress has oversight of the agency, one of the largest law enforcement agencies in the country, and approves its budget.
Immigration activists explained that the woman might have been referring to a common immigration detention set up, where a water fountain is attached to the top of a toilet.
Oh, so it’s just the standard device that is in every jail in America.
Well, that isn’t on the level of lampshades OR soap.
The toilets in CBP cells are often combo toilets/water fountains. We actually got pictures of these toilets through our lawsuit against the Tucson Sector Border Patrol, and people can be forced to drink out of them even though they're filthy.

What a disappointment. I thought we’d finally hit on the thing that was going to prove once and for all that Trump really is Hitler.
CBP officers were “contentious and uncooperative,” said Joe Kennedy, the Democrat from Massachusetts. “They tried to restrict what we saw, take our phones, block photos and video.” Some people had been in their cells for 50 days or more, and were sleep-deprived and filthy, the lawmakers reported. Women they encountered were sobbing after being separated from their children.
“These are the conditions that had been created by the Trump administration,” Joaquin Castro, a Democrat from Texas, said at a press conference at one of the detention centers.
Yes, but they’re just the conditions of a jail for people in a jail.
We need to keep searching, because soon enough, we will find the truth about the secret atrocities Trump is committing on the border. The dark secret hidden behind the Potemkin Village of the special camps for migrant trannies, where they have classes teaching them to be more feminine, will finally bring him down once and for all.
There is a secret Holocaust somewhere here.
We just have to find it.
