Gomez went viral in November when she complained to a Spanish language channel that migrants in Mexican camps waiting to enter the United States were only being fed tortillas and refried beans. The woman claimed that the migrants were being treated like “pigs” and said she would “die of hunger” if she did not eat the food she was given.
