DALLAS (1080 KRLD) - This week a number of Democratic representatives toured two border facilities in and around El Paso. 

That's also when they learned of the secret Facebook group, "I'm 10-15," which is Border Patrol code for "aliens in custody". It's made up of some 9500 current and former Customs and Border Patrol agents. 

Posts make fun of migrants deaths, Democratic politicians and more. 

Congressman Marc Veasey is angry. "The people who were leading our tour with Customs, they told us they were going to look into it. But they did not promise us that people were going to be disciplined over it. In my opinion they felt it was going to kind of blow over."  

He would like to see those who posted offensive messages fired.

After the tour, he asked agents to move the delegation' press conference away from protestors, but they said no. "It was pretty ugly. People were screaming racist things at us. People were shouting at us. They had their MAGA hats on and were being completely disrespectful. It was awful."  

He says there will be a House hearing based on the condition of migrants at the border and hopes it will likely touch on that Facebook page.
