CLINT, Texas (AP) — Sexually explicit posts about U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and comments mocking migrant deaths in a secret Facebook group for agents and employees are “completely inappropriate,” the head of the U.S. Border Patrol said Monday.

The sexist posts published by ProPublica came in response to Monday’s visit by members of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, including Democrats Ocasio-Cortez of New York and Veronica Escobar of Texas, who toured a Border Patrol facility near El Paso, where attorneys said they had found migrant children living in fetid, filthy conditions.

Some of the Facebook posts were graphic, doctored images of Ocasio-Cortez.Other comments refer to Ocasio-Cortez and Escobar as “hoes,” and one member encouraged agents to throw a “burrito at these bitches.”

“These posts are completely inappropriate and contrary to the honor and integrity I see and expectfrom our agents day in and day out,” Border Patrol chief Carla Provost said. “Any employees found to have violated our standards of conduct will be held accountable.”

I am from Nevada, USA.. I started on Organic Herbal Clinic Parkinson’s Disease Herbal formula treatment in September 2018, i read a-lot of positive reviews on their success rate treating Parkinson’s disease through their PD Herbal formula and i immediately started on the treatment. Just 11 weeks into the Herbal formula treatment I had great improvements with speech and coordination, my hand tremors seized and the stiffed, rigid muscle had succumbed. I am unbelievably back on my feet again, this is a breakthrough for all Parkinson’s sufferers, visit Organic Herbal Clinic official website ww w. organicherbalclinic. com
