Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez compares Trump's migrant detention centers to concentration camps

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez compares Trump's migrant detention centers to concentration camps

So absurd is the comparison and insulting to actual Holocaust survivors that Ocasio-Cortez's only recourse-what with her deathly allergy to apology or self-reflection-was to double-down that teeeeeeechnically "concentration camp" is not synonymous with "death camp", so there. Ocasio-Cortez tweeted after Cheney suggested it is inappropriate and offensive to call USA immigrant detention facilities "concentration camps". On Tuesday morning, she said the same thing on Twitter.

The Trump administration is facing growing complaints about severe overcrowding and poor conditions at detainment facilities, with the Border Network for Human Rights issuing a report on Friday detailing the deteriorating situation at the border based on the testimonials of dozens of migrants.

Migrant apprehensions at the border with Mexico soared to 144,000 in May, the highest number in 13 years. This is a crisis for ourselves. "Hemmer responded. "'Never again' is the phrase that Jews all over the world use to make sure that the extermination between 1939 and 1945 never happens again and she's using concentration camps to describe what's happening on the Southern border. These stays can be lengthy given the ongoing border crisis, on average 34 days, but that's only somewhat worse than the 25-day average length of stay in American jails before trial. She later accused Trump of conducting "an authoritarian and fascist presidency".

"Amazon is a leader on pay at $15 min wage + full benefits from day one", the company said in a tweet Monday, accompanying a clip of Ocasio-Cortez on ABC's This Week.

"It just shows either a blissful ignorance of the world and history or it shows a concerted effort of anti-Semitism and ignorance of what we do as a country", he said, criticizing top Democrats for "overlooking" such rhetoric from Ocasio-Cortez and her allies. "A presidency that creates concentration camps is fascist". "And for the shrieking Republicans who don't know the difference: concentration camps are not the same as death camps".

ABC News anchor Jonathan Karl pressed Ocasio-Cortez about whether she does think the wages are why Bezos is a billionaire.

Amazon shot back, saying Ocasio-Cortez is "just wrong". "A ideal example of that is worker cooperatives...which means that...workers own the shares of the company", she said.

"We have never seen business-owned government work for the American people".

Jew here. @AOC's point is exactly why we say "Never forget".
