Brandon Judd, president of the National Border Patrol Council, blasted Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., for her "outrageous" comments and "lies' directed at the agents his union represents.

Judd made his remarks in a column posted on the Fox News website.

He said he was "personally and professional offended" by Ocasio-Cortez's "inflammatory and false claims."

"Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., once again tweeted Tuesday to describe our detention facilities for illegal immigrants as 'concentration camps' — absurdly comparing these facilities to the death camps run by the Nazis who murdered 6 million Jews and millions of others during World War II," Judd wrote.

"This is a horrible insult to the memories of the innocent men, women and children slaughtered by the Nazis, and to our Border Patrol agents — implying that our agents are no different from the Nazi butchers. The outrageousness of this vicious slander is breathtaking — especially coming from a member of Congress.

"I am disgusted by Ocasio-Cortez's lies and her determination to needlessly and dangerously inflame public sentiment regarding the crisis on our southern border by abandoning facts and making wild and unsupported accusations."

Judd claimed she had already made up "her mind long before visiting a detention facility in Texas that Border Patrol agents are bad people."

"And she obviously believes that all illegal immigrants are innocent victims, and that photo ops and lies can help her spread her propaganda to an uninformed public," he added.

He also defended the "vast majority of people I've worked with" as "honorable, decent hardworking public servants."
