BORDER TOUR: AOC Cites ‘Concentration Camp Experts,’ Says There May be Deaths Public Doesn’t ‘Know About’

posted by Hannity Staff - 7.03.19

Controversial Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez continued to label US immigration centers as “concentration camps” this week; saying there may be widespread “deaths” the American public “doesn’t know about.”

“These are concentration camps. According to concentration camp experts, people begin to die due to overcrowding, neglect, and shortage of resources. We saw all three of those signs on our trip yesterday. Another person died yesterday. And those are the deaths we know about,” posted AOC on social media.

US officials and border agents pushed-back against Rep. Ocasio-Cortez’ recent comments regarding immigration detention centers Tuesday; saying the congresswoman is intentionally “misinforming” the American public.

“They are not drinking out of the toilet—no Border Patrol agent is going to make anyone drink out of the toilet,” former U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) director Tom Homan said on Fox News’ “America’s Newsroom” Tuesday. “It’s just ridiculous on its face.”

“She’s lost all credibility,” he said.

“You’re drinking out of the same apparatus, the same piece of equipment, but there are two separate water lines—one going to the commode, one going to the sink,” Homan explained. “… [T]hey are designed that way to try to save space and make it more comfortable for the people who are in those facilities.”

“In that last facility, I was not safe from the officers in that facility,” said Ocasio-Cortez.

Ocasio-Cortez fired-off at Border Patrol Agents Tuesday morning; saying members of the CBP were “disrespectful” during her congressional tour of migrant detention facilities.

“I can’t understate how disturbing it was that CBP officers were openly disrespectful of the Congressional tour,” posted AOC on social media. “If officers felt comfortable violating agreements in front of their *own* management & superiors, that tells us the agency has lost all control of their own officers.”

AOC IMPLODES: Ocasio-Cortez Says Republicans Running ‘Torture Project’ Along US-Mexico Border

Controversial Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez doubled-down on her ‘Concentration Camp’ comments Thursday; telling reporters the Republican Party is running a “torture project” along the US-Mexico border.

“How do you respond to Republicans who are talking about physical barriers being part of any package that deals with the actual crisis in terms of the traffic coming across?” asked a reporter from the Intercept.

“If they want to do that, that’s fine… but they should not be using a humanitarian crisis as a bargaining chip to make sure they pursue their little torture project,” fired-back Ocasio-Cortez.

Yad Vashem, the official Israel Holocaust Center in Jerusalem responded this week to Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’ recent comments; urging the far-left lawmaker to “learn” about concentration camps.

@AOC Concentration camps assured a slave labor supply to help in the Nazi war effort, even as the brutality of life inside the camps helped assure the ultimate goal of ‘extermination through labor.’ Learn about concentration camps,” posted Yad Vashem.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez refused to back-away from her outrageous comments regarding American ‘Concentration Camps’ along the US-Mexico border Wednesday; saying the United States has a “shameful history.”

“The US ran concentration camps before, when we rounded up Japanese people during WWII. It is such a shameful history that we largely ignore it. These camps occur throughout history. Many refuse to learn from that shame, but here we are today. We have an obligation to end them,” posted AOC on Twitter.

“Not one dime should go to DHS for building these camps as they detain children & families. Congressional appropriations season is now. That means it’s money time – we‘re voting to fund federal government programs. We should not fund the caging of kids & families. Pretty simple,” she added.

The official Twitter account of the Auschwitz Memorial weighed-in on the subject Tuesday; posting “Please consider following @AuschwitzMuseum where everyday we commemorate and educate about the tragic human history of #Auschwitz.”

AOC IN TROUBLE: ‘Americans Against Anti-Semitism’ SLAM Ocasio-Cortez’ ‘Concentration Camp’ Remarks

posted by Hannity Staff - 6.19.19

Embattled Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez found herself in hot-water once again this week after she compared immigration centers with ‘Concentration Camps,’ prompting ‘Americans Against Anti-Semitism’ to post a “useful comparison chart” on social media.

The official Twitter account of the Auschwitz Memorial weighed-in on the subject Tuesday; posting “Please consider following @AuschwitzMuseum where everyday we commemorate and educate about the tragic human history of #Auschwitz.”

Ocasio-Cortez made her vicious accusation during a live stream on Instagram Monday night.

“The United States is running concentration camps on our southern border. That’s exactly what they are. They are concentration camps. If that doesn’t bother you… I like, whatever, I want to talk to the people that are concerned with humanity that ‘Never Again’ means something,” said the left-wing lawmaker.

“The fact that concentration camps are now an institutionalized practice in the home of the free is extraordinarily disturbing,” she added.

The self-described Democratic Socialist made national headlines last week when she called for a $4,500 raise for Members of Congress and a “cost-of-living adjustment” for all Americans.

“It may be politically convenient and make you look good in the short term… but we should be fighting for pay increases for every American worker. We should be fighting for $15 an hour minimum wage pegged to inflation,” said Ocasio-Cortez.

“Everybody in the United States, with a salary, with a wage gets a cost of living increase. Members of Congress, retail workers, everybody should get a cost of living increase,” she added.
