Kiara Cervantes easy on the eye…
The female officer’s sudden rise to fame follows 26 year old Cervantes becoming a figure of intrigue after cameras picked her ‘buxom’ aura whilst providing security for Vice President Mike Pence during his recent border visit as she stood guard outside of a holding cell.
Realizing she had
finally become the focal point of national attention, Cervantes posted a video on social media where she told in her best Marilyn Monroe moment, ‘Just woke up…saw that I needed to make a video so y’all could believe that it’s me.’
Adding, ‘It’s me — I’m a Customs officer based in Texas and yeah, I don’t know what else to say.’

Ice Bae Latina Border Patrol officer: Loved & loathed
But if Cervantes wasn’t sure what to say, social media users had plenty to say- some in favor and awe of Cervantes while others expressed their frustration and contempt for the Latina’ who was part of other Hispanics and Latin individuals being circumvented as they ought their freedom and a chance to a self respecting life devoid of the customary upheaval south of the border.
‘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,’ posted one unsettled Twitter user. ‘You’re all sick, honestly.’
Another person said, ‘#IceBae is actively aiding in the internment of men, women, and children without trial or even so much as humane living conditions. She, along with every other officer going along with this is a traitor to the very ideas of justice and freedom.’
While others sought to equate her to the Nazi henchmen, labeling her ‘Gestapo!’

Kiara Cervantes: ‘I know what I am worth- plus I am pretty hot too!’
Cervantes seemingly took all her detractor’s scorn with a shrug.
‘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!’
Replying to a tweet from former Daily Caller editor and columnist Scott Greer — who posted ‘Nothing but respect for our Latina concentration camp guards’ — Cervantes tweeted: ‘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 say she takes ‘a lot of pride” in her job, which, she conceded was ‘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.’
And of course any nation which chooses to define itself by who it allows to stay and keep out- even if such measures go against the very fabric of what presumably gives America its multicultural ‘you can make it too,’ veneer ….
