A photographer Ivan Pierre Aguirre reposted some photos of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez allegedly reacting to a terrible scene on the border a year ago. She visited while she was a candidate.
She is sobbing in the photos, suggesting it is at the suffering of the children.
AOC capitalized on it, saying, “I’ll never forget this because it was the moment I saw with my own eyes that the America I love was becoming a nation that steals refugee children from their parents, and caged them.”
“More kids died after this,” she added melodramatically. “To date, no one has been held accountable. We need to save these kids.”
Most, even her followers, called her out for the seemingly staged photos. There were no children in the photos and she made her visit in a stylish all-white outfit. She was photo-op ready.

More kids died after this. To date, no one has been held accountable.
We need to save these kids. https://t.co/HhdMqc5zML

SHE WAS DEVASTATED BY THE EMPTY PARKING LOT
Grabien uncovered the other photos which answer the question: What horrified her so? We now know it was an empty
parking lot street. How traumatic for the poor dear.
Correction: In our original article, we said AOC was wearing a Gucci watch but it was allegedly a Movado watch.
