The woman in the picture and videos was later identified as Kiara Cervantes, of Texas. A clip shared to social media shows her on duty and apparently people were amused by it. Users gave Cervantes the name #ICEbae and praised her for her good looks. One twitter user said,

“IceBae could detain me for however long she wants.” Another said, “Holy s–t…I think I’m coming down with a case of undocumentation.”

While many people were shockingly having fun with the hashtag, others were not here for the jokes or her role as an ICE agent. One user said,

“This country is a mess, we are praising and trending #IceBae when she is literally a guard at a CONCENTRATION CAMP, guarding CHILDREN IN CAGES, RIPPING FAMILIES APART AT THE BORDER. You’re all sick, honestly.” Cervantes responded to multiple tweets defending her role.

“My job is so hectic at this moment but I am grateful,” she tweeted Monday night. “I love protecting my country! And I love my supporters,” she said.

She also responded to a tweet from former Daily Caller editor and columnist Scott Greer who called her a “Latina concentration camp guard.”

Cervantes said:

“I can’t agree with concentration camps. But… this station in particular isn’t meant to be a holding facility hence the overpopulation of aliens. We are doing our best but some people won’t ever understand. They don’t know the daily of what my job consists of.”

Cervantes went on to tell Twitter users that she takes “a lot of pride” in her job which, according to her, can sometimes be hard and very “difficult.

“Not only because I am Latina,” Cervantes explained, “but just in general the mass amount of people crossing ILLEGALLY daily and the processing can take a toll on anyone of any gender and any race.”
