‘A horrible insult’: Border Patrol Council prez unleashes on Rep. Ocasio-Cortez

He penned a recent op-ed in which he described the congresswoman’s comments as offensive.

“I am personally and professionally offended by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s outrageous, inflammatory and false claims about the dedicated law enforcement officers I represent,” Judd wrote.

The piece went on to specifically denounce Ocasio-Cortez’s comparison of U.S. detention facilities to concentration camps, leading some to view her comments in the context of the Holocaust.

“By comparing Border Patrol agents to Nazis, Ocasio-Cortez is trying to dehumanize us,” Judd claimed. “Interestingly, this is the same thing she accuses us of doing with the thousands upon thousands of illegal immigrants we are charged with arresting, detaining and caring for.”

He called her comments “a horrible insult” amounting to “vicious slander.”
