An American border patrol officer has caught the Internet by storm after going viral with a uniformed selfie.

On Monday, Texas-based agent Kiara Cervantes posted a selfie on Twitter, which shows her all glammed up while she posed in her uniform in front of a mirror.

The snapshot garnered more than 13,000 likes, 1,600 likes and 1,300 comments, with Twitter users dubbing her #IceBae.

Cervantes gained more attention after Twitter user @VibeHi retweeted a video of her.

“Holy s— … I think I’m coming down with a case of undocumentation,” he tweeted.

“#IceBae could detain me for however long she wants,” another tweeted alongside a picture of Cervantes in uniform while on duty.

The border agent was blown away by the attention she was getting.

“WOW I am in awe. Thank you for all the support!” she tweeted. “My job is so hectic at this moment but I am grateful. I love protecting my country! And I love my supporters!”

Cervantes was reportedly working security detail for Vice President Mike Pence during a recent tour of a border patrol station in Texas when she was photographed near a holding cell.

In a video responding to @VibeHi, Cervantes said it was indeed her real Twitter page and she couldn’t believe the support.

“Just woke up (and) saw that I needed to make a video so y’all could believe that it’s me,” she said. “It’s me. I’m a customs officer based in Texas. Yeah … I don’t know what else to say.”

Not everyone was happy with the attention Cervantes was receiving, however.

“Who knew being a concentration camp worker was something to be grateful about,” one tweeted.

“Yeah, you’re cute. But that doesn’t make you any less of a monster. Looks fade, baby. Evil is forever,” tweeted another.

Cervantes responded to some tweets, which included someone calling her a “Latina concentration camp guard.”

“I can’t agree with concentration camps,” she replied. “But … this station in particular isn’t meant to be a holding facility hence the overpopulation of aliens. We are doing our best but some people won’t ever understand. They don’t know the daily of what my job consists of.”
