Reverend Samuel Rodriquez, a Hispanic pastor and veteran of immigration advocacy in the U.S., told Fox News in an interview that he’s “shocked at the misinformation of the crisis at the border” being perpetuated by U.S. Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and that his experience at that same El Paso County, Texas, facility was “drastically different.” “We found no soiled diapers, no deplorable conditions, and no lack of basic necessities,” Rodriguez explained.

A Hispanic pastor said his tour of the same facility visited by U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Costa (AOC) left him with a “drastically different” perception of the facility. The paster said her comments about the Border Patrol detention facility in El Paso County, Texas, left him “full of indignation.”

“Even as a veteran of immigration advocacy in the U.S., I was shocked at the misinformation of the crisis at the border,” Rev. Samuel Rodriguez told Fox News. The pastor serves as president of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference and senior pastor of the New Seasons Christian Worship Center in Sacramento, California.

Rodriquez places the blame for the broken immigration system that led to the current border crisis on consecutive White House administrations and especially on Congress — both Republicans and Democrats — who he implored to “address the system they created.”
