REp. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) walks through a group of demonstrators outside the Border Patrol facilities in Clint, Texas, July 1, 2019. More than a dozen Democratic members of Congress toured the facility where migrants are held.

WASHINGTON – Lawmakers described how migrant women were being held in a cell with no running water and told by U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers to drink out of toilet at a Texas detention center amid widespread concerns about deplorable conditions.

More than a dozen House members visited facilities in El Paso and Clint, Texas - a trip that came on the same day as a news report that Border Patrol agents made vile posts that threatened lawmakers in a secret Facebook group and discussed throwing burritos at the congressional visitors.
