CBP has been under four over alleged conditions at detention centers along the southern border. It has also taken heat over revelations involving a Facebook group where Border Patrol agents made derogatory posts about immigrants and certain lawmakers, including freshman Rep.

Omar previously called for the elimination of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). She also backed Ocasio-Cortez's claim that the U.S. is essentially "running concentration camps" along the southern border.
