0 16

A Latina Border Patrol agent is going viral on social media, with the hashtag “ICEbae” dividing users.

Now, the border agent herself is expressing gratitude that she gets to earn a living by defending her country.

Images first surfaced last week of the agent, who helped out with security when Vice President Mike Pence traveled to a migrant detention facility on the U.S.-Mexico border, according to Fox News.

Soon, “#ICEbae” was born. And many social media users were not shy when it came to expressing how they felt about her.

“#IceBae could detain me for however long she wants,” one user wrote, according to Fox.

Not everyone was so positive. Some users likened the border agent to a Nazi.

On Sunday, a woman claiming to be the agent in the viral images identified herself on Twitter, the New York Post reported.

“Soooo it’s crazy…. but here I am. I’m hearing something about a viral picture. I would like to say i was just doing my job.. providing security for the visit of @VP,” the woman, who the Post identified as 26-year-old Kiara Cervantes, tweeted.

“It was an honor and I take a lot of pride in my job!”

She also posted a short, since-deleted video, according to Fox.

“Just woke up … saw that I needed to make a video so y’all could believe that it’s me,” the woman said in the video. “It’s me — I’m a Customs officer based in Texas and yeah, I don’t know what else to say.”

Citing voter registration records, the Post reported that Cervantes registered in 2011 as a Democrat.

Despite her apparent party affiliation, she appears to be a fan of President Donald Trump’s immigration policies, at least insofar as she supports protecting America’s southern border from illegal immigrants.

In a Monday night tweet, she wrote about how much she loves her job.

“Thank you all for the support! My job is so hectic at this moment but I am grateful. I love protecting my country!” she wrote.

In a since-deleted tweet, Cervantes also defended herself from one naysayer.

“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,” she said, according to the Post.
