"And for the shrieking Republicans who don't know the difference: concentration camps are not the same as death camps". "And that's exactly what this administration is doing".
To begin with, it does nothing for Ocasio-Cortez's argument to boil down concentration camps to merely "the mass detention of civilians without trial", when the entire objective of the facilities she is misdescribing is to detain individuals pending further hearings.
Firebrand Democrat congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez raised some eyebrows when she said that immigrant detention centers on the southern United States border are "concentration camps", while calling President Donald Trump a "fascist".
That is exactly what they are.
"The fact that concentration camps are now an institutionalized practice in the home of the free is extraordinarily disturbing", she said.
Shots fired at the site of Raptors championship parade, two arrested
The Warriors were praised after taking out a full-page advert in the Toronto Star to congratulate the Raptors on their victory. Watching the ↕Raptors first victory parade! "I'm so happy to be here", said the 28-year-old, who happened to have the day off.
She also added: "When you have a very large workforce and you underpay every single person and then you also participate in taking billions of dollars of government subsidies, that could be part of it".
"Hey Rep. Cheney, since you're so eager to 'educate me, ' I'm curious: What do YOU call building mass camps of people being detained without a trial?" Detention facilities serve as a temporary holding place for illegal migrants - not USA citizens or civilians - while their claims and hearings are being processed.
"The quarantine stretches across numerous 39 immigrant detention centers, where many await their deportation hearings", Breitbart News reported.
Ocasio-Cortez had already drawn fire from conservatives last November, when she compared those "fleeing violence in central America" to "Jews fleeing Germany" in the 1930s.
A few hours later, she followed up her original tweet with a message directed at Republicans criticizing her statements. "6 million Jews were exterminated in the Holocaust", wrote Rep. Liz Cheney of Wyoming on Twitter. She said her concern is whether Bezos' wealth is "predicated on paying people starvation wages and stripping them of their ability to access healthcare".
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.
