Furor Over AOC's Claim Border Detention Centers Are 'Concentration Camps'


Far-left Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who fervently defended antisemitic Congresswoman Ilhan Omar, is in hot water again after she called U.S. border detention facilities "concentration camps."

"The US is running concentration camps on our southern border, and that is exactly what they are,” Ocasio-Cortez said.

Drawing a direct parallel to the Holocaust, she added, "If that doesn’t bother you … I want to talk to the people that are concerned enough with humanity to say that 'never again' means something."

The reaction to Ocasio-Cortez's comments was swift. The Republican Jewish Coalition said, "Six million Jews were killed in the Holocaust. It is disgraceful for Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to compare our nation’s immigration policies to the horrors carried out by the Nazis."

"We would hope that Rep. Ocasio-Cortez knows better, but sadly she does not," the group added.

Congesswoman Liz Cheney also blasted Ocasio-Cortez, saying, "Do us all a favor and spend just a few minutes learning some actual history. 6 million Jews were exterminated in the Holocaust. You demean their memory and disgrace yourself with comments like this."
