Americans don’t build concentration camps; they liberate them!
Assemblywoman Nicole Malliotakis said, “Once again a House Democrat has made an offensive remark that at best shows an ignorance of history and at worst a total disregard for the suffering of the Jewish people during the Holocaust.
Alexandria Ocasio Cortez’s shameful remarks that, ‘America is running concentration camps on our southern border,our president is a ‘fascist’ and her commandeering of the slogan ‘never again’ are merely the latest example of rhetoric that walks the edge of anti-Semitism and diminishes the meaning of terms that describe the horrific murder of six million Jews. Equally disturbing as the remarks made by Representatives Ocasio Cortez, Ilhan Omar and others, is the silence of Representative Max Rose. Now, more than ever, we need leaders in Congress who are willing to stand up and speak out.
Ocasio-Cortez falsely claims Trump is operating concentration camps, compares the situation to the Holocaust: “The U.S. is running concentration camps on our southern border and that is exactly what they are. … ‘Never Again’ means something … we need to do something about it” pic.twitter.com/F2MmZ8y2dT

“Rep. Ocasio Cortez should do the right thing and apologize to the Jewish community for her insensitive comments. It is shocking to think, that less than 2 weeks after the 75th Anniversary of D-Day, Alexandria Ocasio Cortez doesn’t understand that Americans don’t build concentration camps; they liberate them.”
.@AOC should apologize to Jewish community for her insensitive comments & then pick up a history book. It is shocking to think, that less than 2 weeks after the 75th Anniversary of #DDay, she doesn’t understand that Americans don’t build concentration camps; they liberate them. https://t.co/YbmR25u25o
