Following her visit Monday to a U.S. Customs and Border Protection detention center in El Paso, Texas, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) took to Twitter to make several stunning allegations, which ranged from being "physically and sexually" threatened, to witnessing female migrants being forced to drink from toilets.
Here's what she claimed on Twitter:

Despite the seriousness of these allegations, Ocasio-Cortez has declined to offer any evidence to support her claims. In fact, when a reporter questioned her statements, the freshman lawmaker rolled up her car window and drove away.
According to The Washington Examiner reporter Anna Giaritelli, it's also possible that Ocasio-Cortez never actually went inside the facility at all. Giaritelli wrote that Ocasio-Cortez "screamed at federal law enforcement agents 'in a threatening manner' ... and refused to tour the facility, according to two people who witnessed it."
On Tuesday's radio program, Glenn Beck and Stu Burguiere discussed Ocasio-Cortez's allegations and why President Donald Trump should call for an FBI investigation.
"When I first saw this yesterday, my first thought was, if I'm Donald Trump, I immediately dispatch the FBI and I seriously say to them, 'I don't want to do some sort of show investigation, I want an actual investigation. We want you to investigate exactly what she [Ocasio-Cortez] said.'
"If those border guards are actually doing those things, I'd want them fired. But, on the off chance that this didn't happen, I would prosecute anyone making outrageous charges like this, because you just can't go in and make charges. If we're going to take every woman seriously, I think we need to start with Ocasio-Cortez. Let's take her seriously. Let's send the FBI," he continued.
"I mean it, the president needs to investigate this story. The FBI should investigate this story," Glenn added. "If it's true, then those border guards need to be dismissed and fired immediately. If they were doing something criminal, they should go to jail. But, on the off chance that they didn't do that, we must put a stop to people making crazy, crazy statements."
