icebae went viral on social media this week for both her beauty and as a Latina working for Border Patrol.

People can’t stop talking about the fact that Cervantes happens to be a Democrat.

Well, it turns out that the Latina Border Patrol guard continues to shock people. According to a report by the New York Post, she’s also a registered democrat.

Though, according to voter registration records she didn’t vote in the 2016 presidential election. She last exercised her right to vote in March 2014.

People from both the liberal and conservative side have come for her with hate, support, and, of course, plenty of thirsty comments.

One Twitter user just couldn’t understand how a person that believes in Democratic values could take a job like this.

And she wasn’t alone. Many on Twitter expressed shock that a Democrat, a Latina one no less, would be willing to take a job that involves separating families and locking children in cages.

In fact, she has gotten a lot of hate.

Cervantes fired back Sunday at one social media user who tweeted that her family will disown her and “shame on any Hispanic working for ICE or anything of that nature.”

“I think that’s really rude and naive of you to say,” she tweeted. “You have no idea who my parents are and no idea what goes into my job on a daily basis… before speaking on something you know nothing about…. DONT. Regardless I’m blessed and thankful for the career I have.”

It seems the entire Latina community has cast her out.

Many called were a traitor and said they she has betrayed her own community.

Though some questioned whether it was actually racist to think a Latina should have specific political views.

What do you think?

How do you feel about #IceBae? Do you think she’s just a Latina doing her job? Or are you upset that a woman of color would take a job that involves the widespread abuse of members of our community?
