A woman reportedly named Kiara Cervantes became a controversial, overnight sensation for being attractive and reportedly a Border Patrol officer, according to Yahoo. A photo of Cervantes was taken during Mike Pence’s visit to a border detention facility while she was on duty. The photo later circulated online under the hashtag #ICEBae.
“I think I’m coming down with a case of undocumentation,” one Twitter fan wrote.
Holy shit! #IceBae is real and she fine AF! WTF?!

The attention she received prompted #ICEBae to finally come forward. A person created a Twitter profile on Monday, claiming to be Cervantes, the ICE bae. She later posted a video to prove she was the real deal.
“Just woke up … saw that I needed to make a video so y’all could believe that it’s me,” said the woman claiming to be ICE bae. “It’s me—I’m a Customs officer based in Texas and yeah, I don’t know what else to say.”
Cervantes also wrote that she was in “awe” of all of the support.
WOW I am in awe. Thank you all for the support! My job is so hectic at this moment but I am grateful. I love protecting my country!
