Democratic Rep Calls For Prosecution Of Border Patrol Agents For ‘Making Fun’ Of Congress Members In Private Facebook Group

Democratic Rep. Frederica Wilson of Florida said Tuesday that the border patrol agents who made fun of members of Congress in a private Facebook group should be prosecuted.

“Those people who are online making fun of members of Congress are a disgrace,” Wilson said during a press conference after touring an immigrant detention center in Homestead, Florida. “We’re going to shut them down and work with whoever it is to shut them down and they should be prosecuted.”

“You cannot intimidate members of Congress – threaten members of Congress – it is against the law,” Wilson said.

ProPublica revealed Monday that over 9,000 former and current Border Patrol agents are part of a secret Facebook group where inflammatory pictures and comments are regularly posted.

One member of the group suggested starting a crowdfunding effort to raise money for an agent to throw a “burrito at one of these bitches,” in response to a post detailing New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s visit to a migrant detention center in Clint, Texas.

The most explicit post in the private group, according to ProPublica, was a doctored image of Ocasio-Cortez being forced to engage in oral sex with President Donald Trump.

Wilson also lamented that Trump has “taken this country to its knees,” noting how people have lost respect for Congress, the media and the White House.

“This is something we are working on,” Wilson said in reference to the Facebook group. “Let’s be glad we found it and we’re going to correct it and we’re going to shut it down.”

Customs and Border Protection has launched an investigation into the private Facebook group, ProPublica reported Tuesday.

Wilson’s office did not immediately return the Daily Caller News Foundation’s request for comment.

  1. Fact or fiction. Who cares. What I do care about is freedom of speech, and all of the slander you idiots have thrown at everyone from the Presidents son, to his wife is unbearable. I feel like I need to join that group. It appears they aren’t part of the fake news company. And then there is you Frederic’s Wilson. You look as if the vibrator in your ass has turned on automatically and you get to it to turn it off. Never fear madam. Like you, the batteries will run down and will cease to be irritated by you or your idiotic rants.

  2. It’s called freedom of speech and it is granted by God and the First Amendment to the US Constitution enforces that right to speak freely. Damned dregs like to talk crap about everyone from the President and his cabinet all the way down to his son. These Democrats are despicable people.
