    Ocasio-Cortez visited a holding facility in Texas on Monday, finding them to be horrifying and below standards that she expected.

    “There is abuse in these facilities,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “There is abuse. This is them on their best behavior and they put them in rooms with no running water. And these women were told by CBP officers to drink out of the toilet. They were drinking water out of the toilet. And that was them knowing a congressional visit was coming.”

    On Tuesday’s edition of Fox & Friends, Kilmeade responded to Ocasio-Cortez’s statement, likening the detention facility to a house party.

    “Picture yourself, you have a house, family of five,” Kilmeade said. “You have a party 30 people over. Maybe you have a big party and 100 people over and you have two and a half baths. Okay with 30. After 100 maybe a little bit taxed, get an outdoor facility. Can you picture 5,000?”

    The Fox & Friends co-host got a quick response from Ocasio-Cortez on Twitter.

    Many commenters agreed with Ocasio-Cortez:
