John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

Ocasio-Cortez Stands By Toilet Water Claims

New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez reiterated her claim Friday that migrant detainees told her they were instructed to drink water out of toilets.

“When these women tell me that they were put into a cell and that their sink was not working — and we tested the sink ourselves and the sink was not working — and they were told to drink out of a toilet bowl, I believe them,” Ocasio-Cortez said during a House oversight committee hearing on the border crisis.

“I believed these women. I believed the canker sores that I saw in their mouths because they were only allowed to be fed un-nutricious food,” she continued, her voice beginning to crack.

“And what was worst about this Mr. Chairman, was the fact that there were American flags hanging all over these facilities,” she continued.

The New York Democrat’s testimony came days after she first claimed, upon touring a Customs and Border Protection (CBP) detention facility near the southern border, that women in custody were given no fresh water and told by agents to drink out of toilet bowls.

The allegation, retweeted over 55 thousand times, created a firestorm in the media and drew heavy pushback from CBP officials.

The agency put out a statement directly refuting the idea that migrants drink out of toilets, and the CBP Deputy Commissioner Robert Perez said he never “heard of that type of allegation being made” in his nearly 30 years of working in the field. National Border Patrol Council President Brandon Judd published an op-ed calling Ocasio-Cortez’s clam “outrageous” and something that is easily disproven by video.

In a video released by CBP, Chief Patrol Agent Roy Villareal walked through a facility and showed viewers what is provided. Villareal showed the massive amount of food, clothing, toothbrushes, and other amenities readily available for detainees. He was also filmed drinking water out of a faucet that was connected to a toilet — dispelling what he framed as the “biggest misinformation” about the facilities.

However, it may have been the Republicans testifying before the committee on Friday that gave the sharpest rebuke to Ocasio-Cortez.

“This whole issue about drinking out of the toilet is wrong. No one drinks out of a toilet. No one is being asked to drink out of a toilet,” Arizona GOP Rep. Debbie Lesko said. “So please, American public, there is no one asking people to drink out of toilets.”

“Meanwhile, my Democrat colleagues prefer to stand in front of chainlink fences next to an empty parking lot, while making up hyperbole for clicks, Twitter followers and cynical politics,” Texas GOP Rep. Chip Roy said Friday, a clear reference to viral photographs taken of Ocasio-Cortez in 2018.
