Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez accused U.S. immigration officials of running "concentration camps" on the U.S. southern border. Ocasio-Cortez spoke to her followers on Instagram in another one of her live, unscripted videos on Monday evening. The New York Democrat said current U.S. immigration policy rivals the Nazi’s treatment of Jews and other prisoners in World War II. "The United States is running concentration camps on our southern border, and that is exactly what they are. They are concentration camps," Ocasio-Cortez said."I want to talk to the people

Hey Taco Barbie....the reason they are coming in the first place is because YOU and the rest of the DEMOCRATS are dragging their feet in closing off loopholes in the imiigration system-loopholes which YOU and YOUR PARTY refuse to address. These "concentration camps" as you so seriously put them exist because of YOU. You are nothing but a pawn for the cartels who exploit the population of Guatemala and the rest of Central America. YOU ARE A RESOUNDING & COMPLETE FAILURE AND SHOULD RESIGN IMMEDIATELY.

IF the Jews were flocking from all over the world trying to break into Nazi Germany illegally so they could reap the benefits of living there, and IF the Nazis were building housing areas for them to stay while their pleas for asylum were being heard then YES, this is exactly like Nazi camps.

Occasional Cortex: lets look at the comparison: Nazi guards killed, tortured, starved, raped, and experimented on innocent Jews. They were racist fascists. American border guards feed, house, protect, and provide medical care to criminal aliens invading our country. We then provide welfare, food stamps, free education, and innumerable other benefits. Yeah, seems comparable to me too. Fool

Politicians deserve the opportunity to make their cases straightforwardly — and voters deserve to hear them. Second, they save time.
